#34 — The Bone Clocks

The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell

  • Rating 4/5
  • Mitchell is a writer’s writer, almost painfully so — maybe for that reason, I couldn’t get into it at first read. The second attempt did the trick and well worth the effort
  • Linear in time and centered around one character. The beginning and ending narrated from the main character’s point of view; the stories in between narrated by others who are connected to the character in some way
  • It started off quasi-normal, then very Harry Potter/Twilight, then into a vivid version of The Road
