Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2014

Run away, one drowsy summer's afternoon, with Holly Sykes: wayward teenager, broken-hearted rebel and unwitting pawn in a titanic, hidden conflict.

Over six decades, the consequences of a moment's impulse unfold, drawing an ordinary woman into a world far beyond her imagining. And as life in the near future turns perilous, the pledge she made to a stranger may become the key to her family's survival . . .

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A globe-trotting, mind-bending, hair-raising triumph.' - Guardian 

'He is funny, hip and full of life. Which other writer could match his witty elision of fiction and science, of sense and nonsense? This beautiful explosion of adventurous ideas may well take him, finally, beyond the Booker shortlist'. - The Times 

'If only real life were as elegant and generally encouraging as a Mitchell novel! He writes with scintillating verve and abundance.' - Daily Telegraph 

'Every page fizzes with energy and humour. Wildly imaginative and truly magical, this is a big, chunky feast of a book.' - Sunday Mirror 

'Intellectually rigorous and stunningly imaginative . . . a rich and dense, inventive and witty thriller which, if you enjoyed Cloud Atlas and Mitchell's other works will leave you completely spellbound' - Daily Express 

'Dazzling'.- New York Times

“Wow!”

I've been putting off writing a review for this book as I really can't find the words. One word sums it up best for me...Wow!

“New classic”

Am a huge fan of Cloud Atlas and was worried it wouldn't be as impressive but I should have known better, a real modern classic and one that keeps you absorbed and thrilled.

“Full of Sound and Fury...”

'The Bone Clocks' it should be said immediately, is a long novel. This should not, however, put you off since it is also a page-turner. I devoured the book in nine days without trying too hard and quite... More
