Description

From David Mitchell, the Booker Prize nominee, award-winning writer, and one of the featured authors in Granta's Best of Young British Novelists 2003 issue, comes his highly anticipated third novel, a work of mind-bending imagination and scope. A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan's California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified "dinery server" on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilization: the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other's echoes down the corridor of history, and their destinies are changed in ways great and small. In his captivating third novel, shortlisted for the Booker Prize, David Mitchell erases the boundaries of language, genre, and time to offer a meditation on humanity's dangerous will to power, and where it may lead us.

Breathtakingly Disorienting

A story of many parts, times and voices. As I listen initially to each one, I have to get 'custom to their unique dialect and world. By the end of a story line and the abrupt changes, I discover the loss and emotional attachment for each.

As I write this I am only two thirds through the work, but I feel I have lived across centuries. The voice acting is natural and adds to the entire experience. Just be warned, you may not be able to put it down any more successfully than I!

A profoundly satisfing crescendo of fiction!

I found it hard to read at first because in the first half of the book it muddles through exposition while teasing out plot then starts over six consecutive times. However the second half of the book rewards your patience tremendously.

I honestly believe the audiobook is waaaay better than the written text because of the many varying dialects past present and future.

I highly recomend this story and audiobook

All you can eat buffet for your mind!

this book was nothing short of amazing I really can't wait for the movie comes out!
