I have decided to make a real effort this year to get through my huge print pile of TBR books. This was the first that the random selector picked out.
I was struggling at times but doing Ok with this book until I got to the far future section. At which point I decided to abandon the novel. The "language" just did for me and I didn't care enough to struggle on. So DNFd at about half way. Life is too short for whatever this is meant to be. At least it's the first of the print books off the shelf. ( )

This was a fantastic book. The first two sections brought me in. Then I was disappointed by the third. The fourth I found a little puzzling, but I breathed a sigh of relief because it showed me why the third was written as it was. Then the fifth put me in mind (both indirectly and, later, directly) of certain British dystopian writers. The sixth knocked my socks off. As the rest of the book unspooled, I knew that this guy was a guy to read, someone whose other books I'll definitely be looking for. Such imagination Mitchell has, and such a knack for craftsmanship. There may be a touch of gimmickry to the book, but it was gimmickry (artifice?) I enjoyed. I'm very glad to have picked Cloud Atlas up.

I reread this and loved it again. What an achievement. ( )

No lo entendí. ( )

This was my second try at a David Mitchell novel, and though there were definitely aspects that I did enjoy, I think that Mitchell's writing style is not one that appeals to me. I am extremely impressed with the threads of the narrative and how they are carried forward in each section of the novel, though careful reading or re-reading is necessary to pick up on the connections which may not be evident at first.

Made it halfway. So done with this book. ( )

It felt like reading multiple stories from six different authors all on a common theme, yet all these disparate characters connect, their fates intertwine, and their souls drift across time like clouds across a globe.
 
Cloud Atlas is powerful and elegant because of Mitchell's understanding of the way we respond to those fundamental and primitive stories we tell about good and evil, love and destruction, beginnings and ends. He isn't afraid to jerk tears or ratchet up suspense - he understands that's what we make stories for.

Oh, once you've been initiated into the Elderly, the world doesn't want you back.
Sometimes the fluffy bunny of incredulity zooms around the bend so rapidly that the greyhound of language is left, agog, in the starting cage.
The stationmaster's whistle blew on time, the locomotive strained like a gouty proctor on the pot before heaving itself into motion.
"Are you mad?"
Always a trickier question than it looks. "I doubt it."
Souls cross ages like clouds cross skies.
