"From the first page I was hooked! "Colorless" is a stirring novel of loss and conciliation, of unanswerable mysteries and fragile hope. There are passages of considerable beauty and insight, which as a reader I greatly enjoyed! Once you read the words of Murakami, you instantly enter his fantasy. You will be awestruck by his brilliance."
"This is such a wonderfully constructed novel. The book follows the two main characters, Marie Laure and Werner, as they grown up and becomes enmeshed in World War II. Mr. Doerr very skillfully interweaves their stories and the worlds they each come from. The writing is excellent and the story is very fresh and original.
