Cloud Atlas Summary

Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

'Souls cross ages like clouds cross skies ...'

A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan's California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified 'dinery server' on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation - the narrators of CLOUD ATLAS hear each other's echoes down the corridor of history, and their destinies are changed in ways great and small.

In his extraordinary third novel, David Mitchell erases the boundaries of language, genre and time to offer a meditation on humanity's dangerous will to power, and where it may lead us.

Cloud Atlas Reviews

A remarkable book ... there won't be a bigger, bolder novel this year. - Guardian

Mitchell's storytelling in CLOUD ATLAS is of the best. I was, appropriately, captivated. - Independent

An impeccable dance of genres ... an elegiac, radiant festival of prescience, meditation and entertainment. - The Times
