Cloud Atlas

by David Mitchell

I had to read this for a book group session.. it really is do very hard going. 5 individual stories supposedly linked... it was one of the hardest books i have read in years. I cant imagine anyone liking it and yet at the book group 1 person did... shocking!

I couldn't finish this book...too much like hard work. Did wonder if David Mitchell was trying to be too clever.

I loved this book and thought it was beautifully written. The individual stories were all captivating except the historical one which I just couldn't connect with. The stories seemed so different in style and writing that I was impressed they were all by the same person. It wasn't a easy read but worth going the extra mile to follow the author on this journey.
