Cloud Atlas (English) (Paperback) Price: Rs. 375

Cloud Atlas is a string of six narratives that starts in the 19th century, and chronically moves into the future. The last story follows the path back, and the novel ends where it initially started. An award winning book, Cloud Atlas is brilliantly written.

Summary Of The Book

Cloud Atlas, published in 2004, consists of six stories, with six different narratives. Beginning from 1850, each story takes time forward and into a post-apocalyptic future. At the end of each tale, readers learn that the main character from the upcoming tale had been reading or observing the previous work. The first five stories are incomplete. The last one goes back into the past, and the book ends in 1850, a time from where Cloud Atlas had initially started, thus completing the other five tales.

The first story The Pacific Journal of Adam Ewing (Part 1) begins in a remote Pacific Ocean Island, and revolves around Adam Ewing. The second is set in Zedelghem, Belgium in the year 1931. Titled Letters from Zedelghem (Part 1), this tale is about a poor British bisexual musician named Robert Frobisher who writes letters to his old lover Rufus Sixsmith, a resident of Cambridge. Half-Lives: The First Luisa Rey Mystery (Part 1) is the third in the series, and its protagonist is a young journalist named Luisa Rey. This story, set in 1971, has been written like a thriller novel, and shows how Rey investigates a nuclear power plant which may be unsafe. She meets Rufus Sixsmith, who decides to help her out. The next story is about a 65 year old man who gets stuck in a nursing home. The Ghastly Ordeal of Timothy Cavendish Part 1 has a comical feel to it, and shows the adventures of the protagonist. An Orison of Sonmi~451 (Part 1) is the fifth story, and is set in the future. Sonmi~451 is a genetically engineered fabricant, and is a slave in a totalitarian state set in Nea So Copros, Korea. Sloosha's Crossin' an' Ev'rythin' After is the last story of Cloud Atlas. Readers will realize that all the previous ones are interlinked, with their central point being the sixth narrative. Part II of each story lies in Sloosha's Crossin' an' Ev'rythin' After, and readers are taken back to the first story.

Cloud Atlas is packed with drama, humour, fantasy, and thrills. This is a powerful book, and takes a deep look into the nature of mankind. It has won the British Book Awards Literary Fiction Award, and the Richard & Judy Book of the Year award. Cloud Atlas was shortlisted listed of the Booker Prize, Arthur C. Clarke Award, and the Nebula Award in 2004.

A different sort of novel.

The book's narration is in different way than the conventional narrative structure. It is spread over period of time across characters. It is not exactly my favorite kind of novel but it is queer. Although, everybody has different perceptions so a reader can judge if its good or bad for himself.

Wonderful Book

I read this after seeing the trailer of Cloud Atlas. It is truly an exceptional book.

An interesting book!

6 different though slightly inter-linked stories, spanning from the 1800's to a post-apocalyptic future, together displaying an underlying common theme of human nature. The first chapter may be hard for some readers but the whole book is rather eloquently written & will keep you hooked! A great buy for someone who wants to try out a new reading experience.

Marvellous

I have just finished reading it and I must say it is one of the best books I have read uptill now. The way all 6 stories are linked up asks the reader to salute David Mitchelle story telling. To the reader the first 6-7 pages may look hard but then the grip the book picks is something
to be watched for. The most interesting part is the way different language representations of English are being used to tell 6 different stories which range in different time zones. Also now the movie being released it adds a flavour to the reading part. It is a must read for those who love reading.

Masterpiece!

Don't excuse yourself from reading this gem just because you have seen the movie. Its a whole different experience altogether! Beautifully woven, 6 lives are merged to create one fantastic piece of storytelling.

Wonderful Book

I read this after seeing the trailer of Cloud Atlas. It is truly an exceptional book. Although it takes a bit of time getting used to the language in all of the different plots, the author has beautifully adapted his writing style to suit each of the different times depicted in the book. Also, there are many morals which one might take away from this book. Highly recommendable book!

Wonderful read

This is one of the books that I have read that have been really un-put-downable! Great read. 6 inter-linked stories from different ages in time - even one in the future. The common thread is the intriguing part.

Great book to read

This is the first book from David Mitchell that came my way. It was a tough read the first few pages - in fact - the entire first half. As you go on from one story to another. Each story moves into another one very abruptly.

But the second half sets things right - the six stories converge and it all begins to make sense. And that is when you realize the phenomenal story telling capability of David Mitchell.

I would recommend this book highly. There is a little bit of philosophy and a message that this book tries to convey. Take your time to become acquainted with the book. Yo…
