David Mitchell’s “The Bone Clocks”

100_8192

I was told that you cannot read a book by David Mitchell and not want to indulge in another one immediately.

I was lucky enough to buy two of his books at once: Cloud Atlas and The Bone Clocks.

Both have multiple first person narrators and there’s an essence of realism and hyper-realism, that you cannot help but sweep in and out of, without feeling like you had a one of a kind experience.

Crispin Hershey, one of the six narrators in this book says, “a book can’t be half-fantasy any more than a woman can be half-pregnant.” As I was reading, I couldn’t help but wonder how he does it, how stories are interwoven that you cannot help but take each word into account and have characters slip in and out of narration.

I’ll definitely look out for more of his works, however one thing is certain after reading Cloud Atlas and The Bone Clocks back to back (and keeping them in my library) I am not ready to delve into another realm with David Mitchell just yet.

You can get a copy of the book on: Amazon
