Cloud Atlas (Modern Library) by David Mitchell
Cloud Atlas (Modern Library)

ernsign, January 30, 2013

Difficult reads often yield greater rewards. This is a complex book, it includes six loosely connected stories. Each story takes place in a different era, with different characters, and each is told in a distinct voice and style. Only one story is told without interruption. I considered putting this book down when it seemed to demanding. But having persevered, I am grateful to author David Mitchell for crafting an awe-inspiring, magnificent opus. The characters are incredibly well defined, and the plots are compelling. I will read this book again, and I recommend it to others.
