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
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.
Have you heard anything about this book, or have you got it on your TBR list?
Hope you enjoy this 🙂
I want to read this too! David Mitchell is a fantastic writer 😀
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! 😀
