This is a book I’ve wanted to read for ages, but don’t know when/if I’ll get around to it with so many review copies to get through…

Title: Cloud Atlas
Author: David Mitchell
Publish date: March 2004

Cloud Atlas - David Mitchell


The narrators hear their echoes in history and change their destinies in ways great and small, in a study of humanity’s dangerous will to power. A reluctant voyager crosses the Pacific in 1850. A disinherited composer gatecrashes in between-wars Belgium. A vanity publisher flees gangland creditors. Others are a journalist in Governor Reagan’s California, and genetically-modified dinery server on death-row. Finally, a young Pacific Islander witnesses the nightfall of science and civilization.

  1. I actually started this one many moons ago and then put it to one side because I wasn’t in the right frame of mind and I didn’t pick it up again. Perhaps I should try again? I’ll wait to see what you think.

    • Ahh interesting… I do that with books randomly too, you might enjoy it if you return to it! Or perhaps it just wasn’t for you… I hope I enjoy it but could take a while to get around to it! 😀
