About the book
Souls cross ages like clouds cross skies . . .
Six interlocking lives – one amazing adventure. In a narrative that circles the globe and reaches from the 19th century to a post-apocalyptic future, Cloud Atlas erases the boundaries of time, genre and language to offer an enthralling vision of humanity’s will to power, and where it will lead us.

The group as a whole found this a difficult and challenging book to read- 2 or 3 did not finish it. The spoken word edition with its different voices pointed up the cultural and era changes well. The linking between each section was intriguing and the Sonmi and Timothy Cavendish stories provoked most discussions as to whether they were real or hallucinatory.
