The Bone Clocks

(1)

The dazzling new novel from the bestselling author of CLOUD ATLAS.

Longlisted for the Man Booker Prize 2014

Run away, one drowsy summer´s afternoon, with Holly Sykes: wayward teenager, broken-hearted rebel and unwitting pawn in a titanic, hidden conflict.

Over six decades, the consequences of a moment´s impulse unfold, drawing an ordinary woman into a world far beyond her imagining. And as life in the near future turns perilous, the pledge she made to a stranger may become the key to her family´s survival . . .

Portrait
Born in 1969, David Mitchell grew up in Worcestershire. After graduating from Kent University, he taught English in Japan, where he wrote his first novel, Ghostwritten. Published in 1999, it was awarded the Mail on Sunday John Llewellyn Rhys Prize and shortlisted for the Guardian First Book Award. His second novel, number9dream, was shortlisted for the Booker Prize and the James Tait Black Memorial Prize, and in 2003, David Mitchell was selected as one of Granta's Best of Young British Novelists. His third novel, Cloud Atlas, was shortlisted for six awards including the Man Booker Prize, and adapted for film in 2012. It was followed by Black Swan Green, shortlisted for the Costa Novel of the Year Award, and The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, which was a No. 1 Sunday Times bestseller. Both were also longlisted for the Booker. In 2013, The Reason I Jump: One Boy's Voice From the Silence of Autism by Naoki Higashida was published in a translation from the Japanese by David Mitchell and KA Yoshida. It was an immediate bestseller in the UK and later in the US as well.

As always the content of David Mitchell's books is very difficult to describe, because it consist (mostly) of stories about people who have met very briefly, touching each others life's for maybe a day or two - then go their seperate ways. Mitchell accompanies each of these individuals for a considerably short time until they are replaced by someone else who incidentally joins the storyline. Added to (t)his usual storyline is a touch of the supernatural in "The Bone Clocks", in a world where foreign spirits seek out human hosts. All the men who have been "inhabited" by these souls meet earlier or later in this book, whereupon each meeting either turns out to be an intimate one or one that ends in a total desaster during which one of the participants - or let's rather say: one of the human hosts - finds their untimely end. The structure of the storyline and the variety of different enunciations in this book are very closely modelled on Mitchell's first book "Ghostwritten" and on his bestseller "Cloud Atlas", which turns "The Bone Clocks" once more into very challenging reading matter that makes you wonder why nearly every other work of fiction suddenly seems dull in comparison David Mitchell's writing style. I don't mean to diminish other examples of extraordinary fiction but once you've read an English (!) book written by David Mitchell you find nearly everything else quite relaxing and easy to read. Enjoy this remarkable ride through all the diversity that the English language (and in fact all the other languages that David Mitchell has mastered) has to offer! So looking to your next book, David Mitchell!
