    This book proves David Mitchell can be any writer he chooses The six novellas that comprise Cloud Atlas are forgeries and they are original Each adopts the voice of a distinct author The whole is greater than the sum of its parts, but all of the parts are superb It is a sextet, like the one found within the novel, with piano, clarinet, cello, flute, oboe, and violin every individual instrument pleasing, but when played altogether becomes something different and brilliant the Cloud Atlas Sextet.Each novella is broken, torn in two, or interrupted, and later continued after the sixth, which is the only one completed in one section Then the previous five stories are concluded in descending order 1 THE PACIFIC JOURNAL OF ADAM EWINGWritten as a journal The first story is a delightful combination of Melville, Defoe, and James Feni Cooper It has the serious tone and charm of 18th and 19th century literature, but goes a bit too far, just short of mockery It is not parody, nor disrespectful Somehow it has a layer of what invisible mirth The acknowledgments notes Michael King s definitive work on the Moriori, A Land Apart The Chatham Islands Of New Zealand which provided Mitchell with a factual account of Chatham Islands history This part of the story is interesting, and adds historical details essential to the plot in the way Moby Dick does with wh...

    Dear David Mitchell,I ve been trying to figure out the nicest possible way to tell you what I m about to tell you I sort of feel like I ve failed you as a reader, but I just couldn t suspend my critical mind for long enough to enjoy your book how I envied my uncritical sisters I hate it when my own words come back to bite me in the ass, don t you Don t take it personally though I m the girl who didn t like The Matrix I know, right How could anyone dislike The Matrix All of the neat o keen o special effects, the super cool concept of the world actually being run by sentient machines, the homage to Baudrillard If you haven t read Simulacra Simulation, read it It ll blow your mind By the way, Baudrillard said the siblings Wachowski completely misinterpreted his work, but I digress , and the kick ass soundtrack okay so it wasn t really all that kick ass Unfortunately at the end of the day, Keanu Reeves can t act his way out of a paper bag, and this girl just couldn t get past that fact For the first half of the novel, I kept trying to psych myself up by reminding myself how much I disliked the first four episodes of season one of The Wire This is just another contrived crime drama Dominic West really needs to work on his American accent Not enough Idris Elba Then we meet...

    On re reading in 2012I admit, the surpringsingly and terrifyingly not awful trailer for the upcoming movie adaptation of this book sent me plunging back into its hexapalindromic universe to re solidify my own mental renditions of Frobisher s bicycle, Sonmi s soap packs, and Lousia s imaginary California, among other things I emerge even impressed with Mitchell s mimetic acrobatics, the book s deft allusive integument Is not ascent their sole salvation p 512 , the acrimonious satire if consumers are satisfied with their lives at any meaningful level plutocracy is finished p 348 , and, ultimately, the nakedly deliberate messages about humanity s will to power and our capacity for empathy re re re re re reiterated in the second half I kept wishing Lousia or Cavendish or someone one would say Be excellent to each other Party on, dudes but not wishing in a snarky cynical judgy kind of way Because I actually think Bill Ted s Excellent Adventure is pretty excellent and come to think of it, is also a story set in multiple time periods with strong musical undertones and a message of peace, love, and happiness This book grants me one of the greatest pleasures a book can it restores profundi...

    Several short stories, that on their own are relatively weak The author has linked them together tenuously with some mistakenly profound pseudo religious nonsense and a tattoo An interesting idea, let down by the poor quality of the writing Pretentious twaddle of the highest order This book seems to be one of those hoaxes to call out hack reviewers I m slightly puzzled by the fact that Mitchell hasn t come forward yet six years after publication.He hits all the usual clich s that are the hallmark of the great modern novel The whole thing is a pretentious construction of six separate stories, with the protagonists in each being incarnations of each other, and ending up in possession of the story of the previous one in some way.The first one is the story of some American lawyer on a ship in the Pacific some time in the 1850s It s supposed to be a journal, but it s a hideously unconvincing one If it wasn t intentional, I don t know why these pretentious cockpouches never seem to be able to manage a decent pastiche it s as if actually reading anything they didn t write themselves is beneath them Replacing every instance of and with , trying to use outdated vocabulary incorrectly, most of the time in the four pages where he repeatedly uses the word kerchief before forgetting it exists again some word of the day calendar is probably responsible for that one , he in...

    All autumn, with the release date of movie adaptation of Cloud Atlas fast approaching, interest in the novel among my Goodreads friends has been high I have not seen many subdued reactions Fans of Mitchell discuss his ability adeptly to assume so many different voices and styles, the intricacy of the novel s structure, and the relevance of its themes for today Detractors have dismissed Cloud Atlas as gimmicky, a work by a much hyped writer who is showing off his style but neglecting to anchor it in themes of substance And some readers simply found his shifts in voice tedious.I recently re read Cloud Atlass, bearing in mind both reactions to the novel I also remembered my first time reading it I was mesmerized by Mitchell s ability to pay homage to six very different genres and voices in the six novellas that make up Cloud Atlas I delighted in tracing connections and interconnections among the different sections of the novel I was entranced by Mitchell s high wire act Mitchell structures Cloud Atlas as follows six novellas are organized in chronological order The first five break of...

    okay i have actually written a review for this book, all you early bird voters feel free to take back your picture votes if you hate my words and by feel free, i mean don t you dare why have i never read this book before observe do you see how it is wedged into a teetering, lode bearing stack of books removing it was a tricky business, indeed, but i succeeded, and i am finally reading it so thank you for badgering me about it, internet, because so far, i am really enjoying it REVIEW the other day, when i was still a whopping 60 pages from finishing this book, greg shoved me out from in front of my work computer to revisit his review of the book.he muttered aloud why does anyone even read my reviews karen, don t ever let me compare a book to a mobius strip again and he is both correct and incorrect because it is a good review, but the book ain t nothing like a mobius strip finnegan s wake is a true mobius infinite jest is a motheaten mobius, with key scenes lost along the way this is of a parabola, or the first hill in a rolly coaster if the rolly coaster ride as descriptor weren t so trite, i would explore that here how at first, you didn t quite know what you were getting into, as you made your ascent, but then, once you got to the top and could see what was coming, you just couldn t read through it quickly enough, and there was excitement and screams and probably some of the weaker readers vomited into their laps but it is indee...

    At the Museum of Science in Boston, there is an exhibit just outside the doors of the Planetarium that demonstrates through a series of adjacent panels the scale of the Earth in relation to the universe at large The first panel shows the Earth s location in the Solar System as a microscopic dot, mind you , which is followed by a second panel showing the Solar System s location in the Milky Way also microscopic The third panel is of the galaxy s location in its Supercluster or whateverthefuck it s called, and so forth and so on, concluding with a final panel depicting the entire observable universe Reading Cloud Atlas is like zooming out from a point on the Earth to the edge of the universe and then back in again, as represented by those aforementioned panels Do we need a visual aid This novel, of course, has little to do with the cosmos, but the analogy is fitting for describing the vastness of its scope It is a hugely ambitious novel connecting characters through space and time, from Adam Ewing s mid nineteenth century voyage from the Chatham Islands to Sonmi 451 s ascent to sentience at an indeterminate period in Korea s future, and several places in between The novel then goe...

    I was a third into this book and I could not care less about it It didn t seem we were meant to be Then suddenly my heart was aching for the characters and their stories, and it did catch me by surprise.And now it s been a week since I finished it, and I still find myself thinking about it Okay, you win, book I have to admit grudgingly You ve wormed your way into my heart and I d better make my peace with it.Why did I resist liking it so much Why did this book and I have such a rocky start to our relationship Sheesh, let me think about it as I lie here on the imaginary psychiatrist s couch in Freudian times.You see, its revolutionary structure and all it is basically six stories, five of which are arranged like concentric rings around one central uninterrupted story, slowly moving from A to Z as the stories go along from Adam to Zachry , leads even the author to question, Revolutionary or gimmicky And I say gimmicky, my friend Jarring, unnecessary, trying too hard and yet being needlessly distracting Hey, you can also compare this book to the rings a raindrop makes in still waters See, I can be allegorically poetic when need arises.Would I have been easier for me to love it had it come simply as a collection of six stories related by the larger overarching theme Perhap...

    One of the most outstanding, hugely epic sagas ever There seem to be six distinct writers in Cloud Atlas distinct, original tableaux their compilation suggesting that the boundaries of writing are endless Mitchell is authentic in every story These really are found objects placed in blatant, cunning contrast with each other But that they were all borne from one fountainhead from one single and chameleonic probably the most chameleonic I have encountered ...
