Abstract:

Six interlocking lives - one amazing adventure. In a narrative that circles the globe and reaches from the 19th century to a post-apocalyptic future, David Mitchell erases the boundaries of time, genre and language to offer an enthralling vision of the world and where humanity's will might take us. 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 Reagan's California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modifed 'dinery server' on death-row; and Zachary, a young Pacific Islander witnessing thenightfall of science and civilisation - the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other's echoes down the corridors of history and their destinies and changed in ways great and small.
