    Highly Recommended

    The characters in this book draw you in and keep your interest. Having no previous knowledge of the balloon weapons, used by Japan in WWII, this story was compelling. It also gripped me enough that I did some of my own research into the subject matter. That is always a sign of a good read for me. When my mind wants for more information.

    achingly beautiful

    Best love story since Greene's 'The End of the Affair.' It made me want to cry.

    The Best Book You'll Read in 2004

    Wow!!! What a tremendous book! I have read and re-read Cloud Atlas and have thoroughly enjoyed each and every page of this compelling novel. Cloud Atlas is as intriguing and bold as its Alaskan setting and masterfully twists the rigors of the Army and Catholicism with Yupik mysticism and the Northern Lights. Somewhere entwined therein lies the truth. Dare to soar with Cloud Atlas.

    compelling

    If you read the first few pages and like the narrative voice then you're set for a compelling read. The second half of the book is heartrendering. The characters are as diverse and believeable a mix as one can find in contemporary novels.
