Mitchell's storytelling in Cloud Atlas is of the best.
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.
The best novel of the year so far ... a thrilling ride of a story
A singular achievement, from an author of extraordinary ambition and skill.
Impeccably structured novel of ideas in many voices by a talent to watch.
Mitchell's storytelling in CLOUD ATLAS is of the best. I was, appropriately, captivated.
A remarkable book ... there won't be a bigger, bolder novel this year.
