David Mitchell

Just finished this book and I was quite impressed by it. Cloud Atlas is a really special book. It has this rare mix of craftmanship, poetry, humor and a message. The book consists out of 6 different stories in different timezones, written in different styles. In a cyclical way they are all more or less connected and Mitchell manages to bring them together in ne book without it getting pulled by the hairs. If you're looking for a good read, this is the book you're looking for.

Sounds good.

I enjoyed "Ghostwritten" which is by the same author, and by the sounds of things has a similiar non-conventional structure to the writing.
