Cloud Atlas

Cloud Atlas is a moving and clever book. The blurbs on the back say “postmodern” but the only thing too-clever about it is the narrative structure, which I fully enjoyed. There’s some Huck-Finn-annoying dialect, but it didn’t bother me as much as usual.

I was surprised to read there’s a film adaptation coming out next year. There’s no way all of the plot will fit in a single film, but I look forward to watching it.
