Synopsis

Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2004 How vulgar, this hankering after immortality, how vain, how false. 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*
