This month our challenge is to read a book which has been, or will be, made into a movie!
Curl up in front of the fire with a book/movie – plus the popcorn…and ENJOY!
Back to the Autumn 2013 challenge to pickup the as yet still unread;
David Mitchell – Cloud Atlas is a Sword & Laser read for October 2012 ** May 2015 Challenge – Science Fiction/Fantasy/Paranormal **
A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan’s California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified “dinery server” on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation—the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other’s echoes down the corridor of history, and their destinies are changed in ways great and small.
In his captivating third novel, David Mitchell erases the boundaries of language, genre and time to offer a meditation on humanity’s dangerous will to power, and where it may lead us.
** All the books getting turned into movies & TV shows over the next year (2013-Jul-04) [io9]
