Author: David Mitchell
Year Published: 2004
Genre: science/post-apocalyptic fiction
Six lives with interlocking stories that span a time period from the 19th century to a post-apocalyptic future. Each amazing adventure is written with a unique feel and genre, completely different from one another and yet eerily alike. You’ll spend the first half of the book utterly enthralled but hopelessly confused. Unravel the link between stories alongside the characters as you are boomeranged back to where you began. Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize and made into a major motion picture, David Mitchell’s impressive work of fiction will engage your moral senses and cause you to compare the enthralling vision of humanity’s will to power portrayed in Cloud Atlas to the world in which we now live. “Everything is connected” – you’ll leave these pages with the unwavering belief that this is indeed true.
