Six lives. One amazing adventure. The highly acclaimed novel of mindbending imagination and scope by the Booker-shortlisted author.'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 Reagans 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 others echoes down the corridor of history, and their destinies are changed in ways great and small.In his extraordinary 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.

Reviews of Cloud Atlas (Flipback Edition):

An impeccable dance of genres ... an elegiac, radiant festival of prescience, meditation and entertainment.' -- The Times 'His wildest ride yet ... a singular achievement, from an author of extraordinary ambition and skill' -- Matt Thorne, Independent on Sunday 'It knits together science fiction, political thriller and historical pastiche with musical virtuosity and linguistic exuberance: 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.' -- Lawrence Norfolk, Independent 'David Mitchell entices his readers onto a rollercoaster, and at first they wonder if they want to get off. Then - at least in my case - they can't bear the journey to end.' -- AS Byatt, Guardian 'The way Mitchell inhabits the different voices of the novel is close to miraculous ... No other British novelist, to my mind, combines such a darkly futuristic intelligence with such polyphonic ease.' -- Robert MacFarlane, The Sunday Times 'Gloriously inventive and dazzlingly virtuosic' -- Suzi Feay, Independent on Sunday
