The plot is like a Russian nesting doll: 1800s travel log -> found manuscript in library of Dutch composer, mentioned in letters -> possessor of letters reveals cover-up of dangerous nuclear power plant -> power plant story a novel draft given to an editor who is tricked into going to an old-folks' home -> story of this editor's imprisonment a film watched by a clone-slave (replicant) in a distant corporate-gov't future -> replicant revered as the goddess of a tribe in Polynesia whose civilization exists after an unclear catastrophe of apocalyptic proportions. And then the whole chain goes back to complete the stories in reverse order.

Major themes include the cyclical nature of history/reincarnation/Nietzsche's eternal recurrence/Darwinian 'might-makes-right' morality/survival of the fittest/the struggle between profits and people.

I am not smart enough to analyze this novel properly; however, its contents are worthy of intense study. I find myself understanding its themes yet being unable to adequately articulate them, and I equally agree and disagree with the various insights and implications Mitchell gives us regarding the world and the nature of the humans therein. I'm glad I read some Nietzsche before this; it adequately prepared me to appreciate some of the thematic nuance, I feel.

A masterpiece, in any case! Bravo!

Oh yes, and I want to point out that the composer's work, entitled Cloud Atlas Sextet is a self-reference for the obvious reason and because there are six major arcs in the novel which, just like the six pieces in a sextet, all play together as a unified whole. That was a subtle piece of brilliance right there! ( )

Patterns of oppression and resistance repeat themselves in very different stories throughout the past, present, and future. ( )

WOW! This book is one of my new favorites. Definitely top 10, possibly top 5 or higher. Such a beautiful, horrific, funny, thought-provoking story (or rather - set of stories). Going to take my brain awhile to fully make all of the connections needed to process it all completely.

Audiobook notes - fantastic listen. I like how there were different readers for each segment. All were great with the exception of the Luisa Rey reader - she was a bit flat. By far the best reader was the man who did the Zachry segment, with the lady who read Sunmi close behind. ( )

Worth a reread and would read other books

Very good writing but lost me in places. I am sorry for not writing a longer review but my own writing has taken all my time this week! ( )

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.
