    1. UPDATE 10.16 Here is the review that this book deserves please readthis and not mine My review is not worth reading I m such a drama queen This is all planned out I imagined a ceremonious return to , where I shock the masses with a derisive and scathing critique of one of my favorite authors, and the community would all be astir What happened to him Didn t he just love David Mitchell He wouldn t shut up about him And then the marauding hordes would rise out of the woodworks, tear me from my home [...]

    2. Dear James Wood,We read and love writers for very different reasons I read Albert Camus and I read Jorge Luis Borges I read Milan Kundera and I read Malcolm Lowry I read Richard Ford and I read Doris Lessing I read Lawrence Durrell and I read Saul Bellow I read Samuel Beckett and I read Jim Harrison I read Emily Bronte and I read Michel Tournier David Mitchell s dazzling gifts are not those of Karl Ove Knausgaard, yet I need them equally in the fabric of my life They bring different qualities to [...]

    3. For one voyage to begin, another voyage must come to an end, sort of Your d j vu is real or maybe you re a Prescient Yes, you ve seen something of this sort before Six interconnected stories told in the first person, combined to create a novel, radiating like raindrop rings on water or maybe the walls of a concentric maze leading to the elusive center from a central overarching theme You ve seen it from David Mitchell not that long ago, in the hit smash success Cloud Atlas You ll see it again in [...]

    4. For many, David Mitchell seems to be an untouchable However, this was my first book written by this author I read it based on the rave reviews I saw, but found it as close to unreadable as any I ve come across.The first chapter is by far the best of the book, after this, the author goes off on tangents using language, terms, and words that were completely foreign to me.The story is all over the place and I was completely lost regarding character progression, relationships, and the overall storyl [...]

    5. This is a detailed summary of key features of the book I ve hidden big spoilers, but there may be minor ones, depending on your definition of spoiler.I have abriefer, spoiler free, and very different, review here different rating, too review show, which is about my feelings for the book It also includes a selection of favourite quotes and links to interviews The difference in star rating is deliberate I couldn t decideNKS AND THEMESThis book, perhaps than any of his others, cannot be viewed in [...]

    7. True metamorphosis doesn t come with flowcharts Another genre bending novel by David Mitchell also channels Stephen King and Carlos Ruiz Zaf n Did you just hear that Yes, but Mitchell does nothing by mistake It was evidently deliberate, and he mixes various castes of writing styles, although much less so than in CLOUD ATLAS and even THE THOUSAND AUTUMNS OF JACOB DE ZOET Mitchell lures in mainstream readers, as well as his steadfast fans I think he does one better, though, than the latter giants [...]

    8. Slightly improved version 10 31 2014 With his newest effort, 2014 s Bone Clocks, David Mitchell returns to form found in his earlier novels such as Ghostwritten and Cloud Atlas with a wide ranging epic spanning across multiple narrators and continents with aims at a universal message about power and the battle of good versus evil Like Cloud Atlas, his newest effort harnesses various genres of fiction into a larger mosaic work that highlights the interconnectivity of humanity and the versatility [...]

    9. Fans of David Mitchell who can remember simple things like characters names will enjoy the callbacks to his earlier novels Those who can t remember shit might find themselves like me doing a lot of plot summary searches to see if they are missing any little surprises for each character that passes through The Bone Clocks I don t think that it s important to have read all of Mitchell s earlier books to enjoy this one And I don t think I m saying that just to make myself feel better about having s [...]

    10. I once wrote a novel like this My agent wisely advised me to split it up into two novellas.I did.I wish Mitchell s agent had given the same advice.He or she didn t.Too bad.It s a tempting trap, this splicing together of novellas I know, I ve been caught in it myself It makes the writer s job much easier And it s clever, to boot In the case of The Bone Clocks, however, this strategy backfired, creating a novel divided against itself.I ll spare you the plot overview for three reasons 1 others have [...]

    11. By the middle of the first sentence, I knew I was in for it By the end of the first sentence I loved Holly Sykes, and would follow her anywhere I got to follow her everywhere With The Bone Clocks we ll remember why we already love David Mitchell, and be amazed that he could top himself again I m increasingly convinced that, like some of his characters, he too has lived many different lives I don t know how one person could equally portray the variety of people, places, and times he does, but I t [...]

    12. I read this, couldn t decide whether it was 2 or 4 , and knew it would take a while to digest it properly and write a full review So I decided to do two this is the short, spoiler free, initial thoughts one The much longer, and very different, one is here review show it has spoilers, but they re hidden Two reviews allows two ratings, but by the time I d finished this, I realised even with its faults, it s not 2 , so it will be 3 and 4 from me Narrative Structure and PlotIt s a relatively straigh [...]

    13. Love s pure free joy when it works, but when it goes bad you pay for the good hours at loan shark prices David Mitchell, The Bone ClocksIt is hard to not like David Mitchell He is literary, just not too literary He is funky, just not too funky He is hip, just not too hip He is political, just not too political He is spiritual, but also seems to leave room for a bit of humanist doubt I can t think of another writer who captures the energy or direction of the slick, urban, cosmopolitan, educated, [...]

    14. I couldn t finish this book, I struggled to even get to 300 pages, it s horribly boring.The opening chapter is fantastic and I thoroughly enjoyed Holly s perspective but things really go downhill after that.The book follows Holly Sykes life through other people who meet her as she ages.Holly Sykes has a strange connection with an outside influence which is a mystery to her and the reader.After Holly s opening chapter, the narrative switches to Hugo who was an absolute pain to read,it s depressin [...]

    15. My hero is a Cambridge student called Richard Cheeseman, working on a novel about a Cambridge student called Richard Cheeseman, working on a novel about a Cambridge student called Richard Cheeseman No one s ever tried anything like it Cool, says Johnny Penhaligon That s sounds like A frothy pint of piss, I announce, and Cheeseman looks at me with death in his eyes until I add, is what s in my bladder right now The book sounds incredible, Richard How can a novel so replete with cynicism and sadne [...]

    16. I adore David Mitchell To pieces No novel has simultaneously so moved and impressed and entertained me as has Cloud Atlas, and I will always be an enthusiastic Mitchell devotee groupie fan girl.But did I adore The Bone Clocks With great disappointment, I must confess that I did not notwithstanding the fact that I devoured the novel over the course of just three of four days.The Bone Clocks is fantastical dreck camouflaged as literature Don t get me wrong I have nothing against fantasy novels per [...]

    17. Meanwhile the Frankfurt Book Fair 8 to 12 October, 2014David Mitchell caught trying to sneak into the Frankfurt Book Fair for free Why would he even try David On the red carpet outside the auditorium Haruki, would you mind autographing my book for me Haruki Looks only briefly at the book, before opening it to the title page Hey, this isn t my book What s going on David It s my book I told you it was my book.Haruki Recognising David Mitchell But you keep plagiarising my novels David Come on They [...]

    18. Anticipation started pooling around David Mitchell s magical new novel as soon as the title was revealed last year Like Thomas Pynchon and Haruki Murakami to whom he s often compared Mitchell excites his culty fan base into fits of rapture One bookseller told me that a customer offered money to be allowed to sit in the store and read an advance copy of The Bone Clocks Named a finalist for the Booker Prize than a month before publication, the novel has finally descended incarnate from the mind o [...]

    19. Some of these books of David Mitchell are odd and some of them feel almost epic, while still others are just shocking by how much strong voice coming through the page, and some have it all This is one of those books, the closest novel to Cloud Atlas out of all the books of his that I ve read.It shares the same basic concept of loosely tied novellas with strange immortal creatures either living their lives among the humans or actively engaging in a far ranging and explosive war with others a bit [...]

    20. I tried, I really did Picked it up, put it down, picked it back up again Made it to page 200, but this book is just not for me Made my head hurt.

    21. I forced myself not to read than 100 pages a day so I wouldn t finish this book too quickly I was happy to see David Mitchell going back to the threaded storylines and fantastical diversions that I loved so much with Cloud Atlas after the historical fiction turn he took in The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet.The hardback has a beautiful color and silky pages I m putting all my thoughts behind a spoiler, in case details ruin your enjoyment of discovery view spoiler The book is written in secti [...]

    22. I loved this one for its pervasive sense of play and its weaving of voices across time Unlike the centuries spanned by Cloud Atlas , this one is grounded to the life arc of one Holly Sykes and it doesn t wind backward And it s a lovely arc and a brave one too Some early paranormal experiences lead her to grasp beyond an ordinary life to find answers, and the answers she gets forces her by the end of the book to take sides in a war between immortals That scope you need to know, as the late breakt [...]

    23. Fans of Mitch Davies had high hopes for this one, but I think it s fair to say that reactions have been mixed Of course, with the critical success of Mapping Thunderheads and Davies reputation for inventive structuring, this long awaited release was meant to solidify his status as a literary virtuoso My own feeling is he fell short of the mark, though with strong work that at times brought him close As I was tallying my pluses and minuses, I made the mistake of looking at the many excellent revi [...]

    24. We sort of live on, as long as there are people to live on in This had all the David Mitchell trademarks that I love so much It tells of a hidden war taking place through time by two different immortal with terms and conditions groups I don t want to say any really about the plot as part of the joy of a David Mitchell novel is actually working out what is going on and how it all relates.The story is told through the viewpoint of several characters, each one at a jump of a few years They intertw [...]

    25. 4.5 5 starsI REALLY REALLY liked this book Like a lot I loved how the stories connected and how intricate it was just AH lots of good things Really loved Holly every part she was in, and most of the other characters.It lagged at points for me, which is the only reason for the 1 2 point off, but beyond that excellent excellent book.

    26. What a glorious mess, oh God There are certain Indian sweets which will hook you on the first bite itself Before you know, you start gorging soon, you feel nauseated as all the sugar goes to your head yet you keep on eating as by that time you have become addicted When you finish, you are left with a bloated tummy and a nagging headache and a wish you had left well enough alone yet the next time when the same dish is placed in front of you, you once again start gorging.I could say the same for D [...]

    27. Let s get the most important thing out of the way first Jessica and Cynthia got a copy of this book for me at BEA, and David Mitchell signed it DAVID MITCHELL KNOWS MY NAME Y ALL And there s a heart too Under the spoiler tag view spoiler I d also like to say that the ARC copy of this book is really beautiful, and when I eventually get a hardcover edition I hope it s just as pretty But look at how nice this looks all by its ARC self hide spoiler I really liked The Bone Clocks, and it s so obvious [...]

    28. La magia de Relojes de hueso reside en empezar a leerlo sabiendo el menor n mero de cosas posibles para que la espiral del tiempo que plantea te atrape en toda su enormidad A trav s de seis historias que recorren desde 1984 hasta el 2043 seguiremos la vida de Holly Sykes Holly es una chica de or genes irlandeses que se escapa de casa tras una inesperada bofetada de su madre, en un extra o viaje en el que se cruzar con una anciana pescando que le solicitar asilo Aunque es una extra a petici n, Ho [...]

    29. I once read, in a friend s review of Cloud Atlas, that David Mitchell is a writer who loves to show off I understand that statement now.In terms of plot, The Bone Clocks is a pure fantasy novel, with its own factions of heroes and villains from a different realm locked in a centuries old battle, complete with made up words and psychic phenomena Yet the novel is structured in a way that is completely anti fantasy like Mitchell deliberately wants to impede your understanding of his book So when yo [...]

    30. Here s the second DNF for this week I checked these books out from the library so my motivation to finish them is maybe not the highest, with several other books waiting on the shelf.So here s the deal with The Bone Clocks It s well written, and I could have kept plugging away at it Maybe I would have liked it in the end, but it felt like a chore to me I wasn t terribly interested in what was happening in the story, and I didn t care about the characters in the slightest The thought of trying to [...]
