Publisher Review

Impeccably structured novel of ideas in many voices by a talent to watch. -- Literary Editor's Best Books * Observer * Mitchell's storytelling in Cloud Atlas is of the best. -- 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 * A singular achievement, from an author of extraordinary ambition and skill. -- Matt Thorne * Independent on Sunday * An impeccable dance of genres . . . an elegiac, radiant festival of prescience, meditation and entertainment. -- Neel Mukherjee * The Times * A remarkable book ... there won't be a bigger, bolder novel this year. * Guardian *
