Following a scalding row with her mother, fifteen-year-old Holly Sykes slams the door on her old life. But Holly is no typical teenage runaway: a sensitive child once contacted by voices she knew only as "the radio people," Holly is a lightning rod for psychic phenomena. Now, as she wanders deeper into the English countryside, visions and coincidences reorder her reality until they assume the aura of a nightmare brought to life. For Holly has caught the attention of a cabal of dangerous mystics -- and their enemies. But her lost weekend is merely the prelude to a shocking disappearance that leaves her family irrevocably scarred. This unsolved mystery will echo through every decade of Holly's life, affecting all the people Holly loves -- even the ones who are not yet born. A Cambridge scholarship boy grooming himself for wealth and influence, a conflicted father who feels alive only while reporting from occupied Iraq, a middle-aged writer mourning his exile from the bestseller list -- all have a part to play in this surreal, invisible war on the margins of our world. From the medieval Swiss Alps to the nineteenth-century Australian bush, from a hotel in Shanghai to a Manhattan townhouse in the near future, their stories come together in moments of everyday grace and extraordinary wonder.… (més)

I enjoyed the first part of the book in which we are introduced to Holly Sikes. However, the second part of the book changed to completely different characters and events and it felt like I'd begun reading a completely different book. Maybe the two storylines do link together, but they were too different and I rapidly lost interest.

I loved Ghostwritten and Cloud Atlas. In those works the hints of fantasy/resurrection add an edge of imaginative indeterminacy to the mostly densely rendered realities their crazily ambitious plots pull together. In The Bone Clocks there's a disappointing inversion--the realities become more formulaic and cynical and the sadly two-dimensional fantasy frame-story comes to the fore. The intertextuality with Mitchell's earlier books threatens to diminish those narrative worlds retroactively, by needlessly interlacing them with sillystring. ( )

Ich mochte das Buch sehr, obwohl es irgendwie seltsam ist.
Holly Sykes, eine 1969 geborene Engländern, wird in dem Buch durch ihr ganzes Leben begleitet. Jedes Kapitel ist aus deiner anderen Perspketive geschrieben. Diesen Lebenslauf finde ich sehr interessant , vor allem die Dystopie am Ende. Ein bisschen witzig ist es, wenn Silvester 2020 alle reisen, obowhl in Wirklichkeit die Pandemie schon alles im griff hatte. Aber auch bei den Knochenuihren kommt eine Pandemie, also ist das Buch doch nah an der Wahrheit. Nicht allezu nah an der Wahrheit ist es mit dem phantatstischen Element, den Horologen und den Anachoreten. Ich fand es recht spannend, hättte es aber nicht gebraucht. Dazu gefile mir Hollys Lebensgeschichte gut genug und auch die wunderbaren Einzelteile des Romans, jede in anderem Stil und mit anderer Hauptperson und auch mit anderem Schwerpunkt.
Ich habe das Hörbuch gehört und fand es fantastisch gelesen. Anfangs habe ich mich noch gewundert, wieso eine Mädchengeschichte von einem Mann gelesen wird, aber das wird dann ja deutlich, wenn die nächsten Bücher kommen. Wirklich genial! ( )

Read this because a co-worker HIGHLY recommended this to me. If he had not shown such enthusiasm for this I would have put it down long before the more than 600 pages.

I could not find a story here...more rather disconnected events, introduced characters and story line arcs that were completely unconnected. I kept going with the story because I kept thinking "There has to be something yet to come" ....there was nothing to come, just time I can never get back.

I am only giving it a 2 because my co-worker LOVED it and was horribly sad when it was finished. ( )

Totally superlative. I loved every bit of this, as much or maybe more than "Cloud Atlas"
There are his usual hints and references to his previous books but here is a suggestion that they are all included in one overall meta-fiction or indeed all organically grown from one central idea--- The reincarnation or transmigration of souls. ( )

Mitchell's plotting is as intricate as ever, and he indulges in many familiar tricks. Themes, characters and images recur in different configurations, as in a complex musical work; characters from earlier Mitchell books make guest appearances; there are sly references to Mitchell's literary reputation, as well as to the works of other writers....

Mitchell is a writer who will always do his own thing, and the question to ask about his work isn't how profound it is, or what category it belongs to, but how much fun it is to read. And on that measure, The Bone Clocks scores highly.

In fact, Holly’s emergence from “The Bone Clocks” as the most memorable and affecting character Mr. Mitchell has yet created is a testament to his skills as an old-fashioned realist, which lurk beneath the razzle-dazzle postmodern surface of his fiction, and which, in this case, manage to transcend the supernatural nonsense in this arresting but bloated novel.
afegit per ozzer | editaNEW YORK TIMES, MICHIKO KAKUTANI (Aug 26, 2014)
 
Another exacting, challenging and deeply rewarding novel from logophile and time-travel master Mitchell

I fling open my bedroom curtains, and there's the thirsty sky and the wide river full of ships and boats and stuff, but I'm already thinking of Vinny's chocolaty eyes, shampoo down Vinny's back, beads of sweat on Vinny's shoulders, and Vinny's sly laugh, and by now my heart's going mental and, God, I wish I was waking up in Vinny's place in Peacock Street and not in my own stupid bedroom.

The fantasy subplot clashes so violently with the State of the World pretensions, I cannot bear to look.
What surer sign is there that the creative aquifers are dry than a writer creating a writer character?
My hero is a Cambridge student called Richard Cheeseman, working on a novel about a Cambridge student called Richard Cheeseman, working on a novel about a Cambridge student called Richard Cheeseman. No one’s ever tried anything like it.
