Cloud Atlas, by David Mitchell.

 

A book sitting on my shelf, waiting for me to read at my leisure, has now become must read soon. Because if it’s anything as good as this movie trailer suggests it may be, then Cloud Atlas, by David Mitchell, could very well be the best book I’ve read in a long, long time.

  1. The book is astonishing. It takes some effort, but repays you in spades. I think the film trailer looks amazing. I would have thought the book (600+ pages of dense prose with more ideas in one book than most authors have in a career) was unfilmable, but it looks like they’re making a good stab at it!

    Good luck!

  2. I’m impressed. Thanks, James.
    I just bought it, and two others by Mitchell… Now, if only I can find the time to read. ))
