Cloud Atlas is a rather different novel. Part sci-fi, part historical fiction. It should have something to appeal to everyone. The stories are linked in some obvious ways. But largely, this novel is about the power of stories and how we can use narrative to manipulate or change things. ...

Cloud Atlas is really interesting in the fact that there are several distinct stories within one book. It was written well and the distinct sections were told well and formatted just right so that you could tell you were reading more about Sonmi-459 instead about Cavenaugh.While there was a common ...

The Cloud Atlas is one of those books you can read a hundred times over and still never get enough of, you always have a new perspective, there's always a new discovery, and even when you've found it you always want to return to it. I love love love this book in so many ways its not even funny. It s...

I am furious at myself for having avoided this book for so long, on the basis that, as I've heard and occasionally read, it would be “confusing”. WHAT?I have no idea what Cloud Atlas needs to be compared to in order to get classified like that, but it will probably take something really simplistic, ...

One of the most creatively structured novels I've ever read. I'm going to have to think about this one for a while, but at the moment, in all its fascination and intricately creative glory, it lacks a certain something that leaves me thinking, "This is truly a great book."

Having enjoyed the movie and feeling very curious to see the original source I decided to pick this one up.I faced the same situation as I had when I read The G...

Disclaimer: English book, so German review first, English version after the picture. Manchmal ist es schwer über ein gutes Buch zu schreiben: Dies war ein wunderbares Buch, ganz einfach. Aber ich muss zugeben, dass ich ziemliche Panik davor habe es zu rezensieren. Denn was David Mitchell hier ge...

i always said that every writer to a degree is a philosopher. david mitchell takes the top prize. 'cloud atlas' is a brilliant philosophical perspective on how everything is interconnected in the universe and how we, as humans, solely responsible for the rise of good and evil in our world. the book ...

It's very hard to give Cloud Atlas a genre. It's not science fiction - although there are science-fictiony elements. It's not historical fiction - although there are historical elements. It's not a thriller - although there are thriller elements. I suppose it's a mixture of genres, all thrown in t...
