A fascinating very literary creation of mutliple novellas scattered over the book in different segments, easy to read, but you be alert.

Thought Provoking

Perhaps the most amazing thing about this book is that only one person wrote it, although it reads like four very different authors were involved. Cloud Atlas works on a variety of levels, incorporating complex themes, history, science fiction, and these amazing character voices- all of whom are connected by a slender thread that would be trite in the hands of any other writer. It may take you a few pages to get into the flow of each character's voice, but it will be time well spent!

A Novel with sky high quality

Mitchell provides us with a beautifully rich and varied language. His vivid imagination, ultimatley about power and domination, propels us into six different worlds. His Russian doll is then weaved together to provide a thought provoking novel about mankind. Compelling reading.
