The Bone Clocks, My Review: 4 stars
This is the first David Mitchell book I have read. I was expecting to find it hard going, but it was easy to read. I drifted in and out of some parts of the story, especially as there were multiple narrators, a couple of whom I struggled to engage with. This was probably enhanced due to me ‘reading’ the audio book which had different narrators reading each part. I would find myself nicely tuned in to the voice and story and then wishing it would continue rather than be plunged into a completely new character’s story.
The story was part fantasy, part human destruction of the world. Wrapped up in the life and relationships of the main character. It made me consider mortality, power, loyalty, survival.
Although there were points in the middle of the story where I found it disjointed and considered ditching it, my engagement returned and I’m glad I stayed with it. It stayed with me too.
