Summary: 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 Reaganâ€™s California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified â€œdinery serverâ€ on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation â€” the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each otherâ€™s echoes down the corridor of history, and their destinies are changed in ways great and small.
In his captivating third novel, David Mitchell erases the boundaries of language, genre and time to offer a meditation on humanityâ€™s dangerous will to power, and where it may lead us.
