The Hachette Essentials edition of the Booker-prize shortlisted cult sci-fi epic CLOUD ATLAS.

The Hachette Essentials series comprises a collection of titles that are regarded as modern classics. A carefully and lovingly curated selection of distinctive, ground-breaking fiction and non-fiction titles published since 1950. Timeless. Relevant. Passionate. Unified as a series - distinctive as books. A good book is great. A great book is essential.

Souls cross ages like clouds cross skies . . .

Six interlocking lives - one amazing adventure. In a narrative that circles the globe and reaches from the 19th century to a post-apocalyptic future, CLOUD ATLAS erases the boundaries of time, genre and language to offer an enthralling vision of humanity's will to power, and where it will lead us.

*Please note that the end of p39 and p40 are intentionally blank*

Praise for Cloud Atlas

  • An impeccable dance of genres . . . an elegiac, radiant festival of prescience, meditation and entertainment - The Times

  • Just about the most audacious, thrilling and, above all, entertaining young British novelist there is - Observer

  • His wildest ride yet . . . a singular achievement, from an author of extraordinary ambition and skill - Independent on Sunday

  • One of the most shamelessly exciting books imaginable - Spectator

  • David Mitchell entices his readers onto a rollercoaster, and at first they wonder if they want to get off. Then - at least in my case - they can't bear the journey to end. - Guardian

  • A novel of breath-taking ambition and scale, spanning continents, oceans and centuries - Christina Patterson

  • The novel's scale, ambition and execution make almost everything in this contemporary fiction look like a squalid struggle of Nissen huts . . . it is nothing short of a miracle of correspondences, of thematic and stylistic assonances, echoes and reverberations, every bit as intricate and rewarding as a complex fugue - The Times

  • Gloriously inventive and dazzlingly virtuosic - Independent on Sunday
