The Bone Clocks
The dazzling novel from the bestselling author of CLOUD ATLAS.
Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2014
Run away, one drowsy summer’s afternoon, with Holly Sykes: wayward teenager, broken-hearted rebel and unwitting pawn in a titanic, hidden conflict.
Over six decades, the consequences of a moment’s impulse unfold, drawing an ordinary woman into a world far beyond her imagining. And as life in the near future turns perilous, the pledge she made to a stranger may become the key to her family’s survival . . .
Dazzling. * New York Times * Intellectually rigorous and stunningly imaginative . . . a rich and dense, inventive and witty thriller which, if you enjoyed Cloud Atlas and Mitchell's other works will leave you completely spellbound * Daily Express * Every page fizzes with energy and humour. Wildly imaginative and truly magical, this is a big, chunky feast of a book. * Sunday Mirror * If only real life were as elegant and generally encouraging as a Mitchell novel! He writes with scintillating verve and abundance. * Daily Telegraph * He is funny, hip and full of life. Which other writer could match his witty elision of fiction and science, of sense and nonsense? This beautiful explosion of adventurous ideas may well take him, finally, beyond the Booker shortlist. * The Times * A globe-trotting, mind-bending, hair-raising triumph. * Guardian *
