I just finished Cloud Atlas, 2004 , by David Mitchell
I really like this book... Very good... If one of you recommended it and I forgot thanks!!!!
The novel consists of six nested stories that take the reader from the remote South Pacific in the nineteenth century to a distant, post-apocalyptic future. Each tale is revealed to be a story that is read (or observed) by the main character in the next. All stories but the last are interrupted at some moment, and after the sixth story concludes at the center of the book, the novel "goes back" in time, "closing" each story as the book progresses in terms of pages but regresses in terms of the historical period in which the action takes place. Eventually, readers end where they started, with Adam Ewing in the Pacific Ocean, circa 1850.
Book is being made into a movie staring Tom Hanks..
Book was a finalist for the man Booker award but did not win..
