Cloud Atlas – David Mitchell

At first, I wasn’t sure I was going to like this book. But long after I’d read the last sentence, the story was on my mind – and now I already want to read it again. Mitchell weaves a complex story about life, love, and human progress spanning centuries. The story is told through a series of separate, distinct voices, each with their own story to tell. In the beginning, it’s difficult to see how these stories fit together, but slowly we begin to see a picture of the connections between each character and their actions across time and space. The narrative is filled with uncertainty, some of which is never resolved – so those who like neat endings, beware! Yet Mitchell is an incredibly talented writer who brings this ambitious and captivating story to life. (submitted by AA)

  1. Cloud Atlas is a great book; however some of the interconnected stories are hit-and-miss.

    But, I do appreciate the grand scope of his writing. I’ve heard that the Coen Brothers are adapting the book into a movie, which will be interesting to see on the big screen!
