Member's choice: ‘Cloud Atlas’ - David Mitchell
“the fantastical speculative fiction book consists of six interconnected nested stories that take the reader from the remote South Pacific in the nineteenth century to the island of Hawai'i in a distant post-apocalyptic future. The author has said that the book is about reincarnation and the universality of human nature, and the title references a changing landscape ('cloud') over manifestations of fixed human nature (the 'atlas'). The title was inspired by the piece of music of the same name by Japanese composer Toshi Ichiyanagi”.
There is a 2012 movie adaptation of the novel, starring an ensemble cast, described as "an exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution".
You can read the book, just watch the movie, do both or neither. Feel free to simply join us for a discussion and a drink.
