Waterstones Says

A perfectly poised Rubik’s Cube of a novel that explodes ideas of what the form can achieve, Cloud Atlas travels through a buccaneering past and a chill dystopian future to interweave six fragmentary but eminently credible narratives into a stunningly realised whole.   

Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2004

How vulgar, this hankering after immortality, how vain, how false.

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.

*Please note that the end of p39 and p40 are intentionally blank*
