A review by c0urtn3yy
Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell


I'm actually glad I saw the movie before I started reading the book. I found one story (the 6th one) hard to read because of the writing style (which I'm sure was done extremely well, but I skimmed through most of it -- I was not patient enough to stumble my way through it all). I did, however, enjoy the consistent new characters and hopping back and forth between stories and finding out they're all connected. The 5th story was by far my favorite -- I almost kind of wish there was a separate book for that masterpiece.
