All the Light We Cannot See Two (8 August 1944): Saint-Malo Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
It is 1944, and in the city of Saint-Malo, the Americans have just finishing their bombing. The city is mostly in ruins—buildings have been reduced to ash, and there is fire everywhere. Even the mighty Hotel of Bees has been destroyed.
We now jump back to the scene of the prologue, as Doerr tells his story both through two storylines and two timelines. We’re reminded of Dr. Geffard’s words: everything goes extinct in the end, even a city that’s defended France for thousands of years.
