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 Reaganâs California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified âdinery serverâ on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisationâthe narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each otherâs echoes down the corridor of history, and their destinies are changed in ways great and small.
In his captivating third novel, David Mitchell erases the boundaries of language, genre and time to offer a meditation on humanityâs dangerous will to power, and where it may lead us. (description credit: Goodreads.com)
