to the above critic
I personnally loved cloud atlas and the distinctive writing style Mitchell used in its was one of those types of books that does not like to spoon feed the reader the overall underlying message, as in it is open to interpretation, by giving little sound bites of the peoples histories and surcumstance the reader had the ability to garner from the story that which one wanted.
But in the end what can anybody say, literature is about personnal taste in all its mediums I know some people who hate Tolkein for it's supposed simplisity. In the end I give a thumbs up to Mitchell and please try Ghostwritten before you nay say him as an author too much as I think it superior even though it's his first solo work <!-- s:D --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_biggrin.gif" alt=":D" title="Very Happy" /><!-- s:D --> view post
