Ignore the 'official' review

by Antoinette C on Jan 2, 2013

The Cloud Atlas by Liam Callanan is written in a style comparable to Charles Dickens with Chaucer editing over his shoulder. Nowhere as yet, have I a found a World War II soldier. As an avid reader, I found this book difficult to digest. It opens in eighteenth century New Zealand. Although it would appear to be clever of the writer to speak in the vernacular of the local and time frame, it makes the story more of a linguistic puzzle than an entertaining tale.
