The dazzling new novel from the author of Cloud Atlas, at once the kaleidoscopic story of an unusual woman's life, a metaphysical thriller and a profound meditation on mortality and survival.
A globe-trotting, mind-bending, hair-raising triumph. * Guardian *He is funny, hip and full of life. Which other writer could match his witty elision of fiction and science, of sense and nonsense? This beautiful explosion of adventurous ideas may well take him, finally, beyond the Booker shortlist. * The Times *If only real life were as elegant and generally encouraging as a Mitchell novel! He writes with scintillating verve and abundance. * Daily Telegraph *Every page fizzes with energy and humour. Wildly imaginative and truly magical, this is a big, chunky feast of a book. * Sunday Mirror *Intellectually rigorous and stunningly imaginative . . . a rich and dense, inventive and witty thriller which, if you enjoyed Cloud Atlas and Mitchell's other works will leave you completely spellbound * Daily Express *Dazzling. * New York Times *For its experimentation, humour, hybrid energy, and sheer narrative pleasure, The Bone Clocks compels admiration. * Evening Standard *No one, clearly, has ever told Mitchell that the novel is dead. He writes with a furious intensity and slapped-awake vitality, with a delight in language and all the rabbit holes of experience * New York Times Book Review *Mitchell's mesmerizing saga is evidence of the power of story to transport us, and even to stop time entirely. * Vanity Fair *
