Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell

Cloud Atlas consists of six nested stories that take the reader from the remote South Pacific in the nineteenth century to a distant, post apocalyptic future.

    Cool meet up. A good fun and impassioned chat about the book with insightful contributions. Great to meet all you guys. I look forward to more.

    Hi Guys,

    I've been struck down with a virus. I'm assuming it's a fatal contagion that'll take down 99% of the population, so It'd be irresponsible of me to expose you to it. I'm not cancelling tonight's meetup because lots of you have RSPV'd yes and I really want the group to have discussed Cloud Atlas before we watch the movie next week.

    I'm sure you'll be able to muddle on without me. Go to the usual room in the Britons Protection and if you've got the book with you have it out on the table so new members know who to approach. Sorry I can't be there. It's great book and I hope you have lots to discuss. Let me know how it goes.

    See you all soon,

    Rachel

    I'm planning on coming along. This was one of the three favourite NEW books I read during my English Lit degree, and the best SF / dystopian novel by far (emphasis on 'new', so I'm discounting 1984 et al). I was blown away by David Mitchell's ambition and the fact that he delivered on what he set out to do :)

    Have just bought the book - can't commit to attending yet but I'll get cracking on reading anyway, just in case!
