"Cloud Atlas is a 2004 novel, the third book by British author David Mitchell. It consists of six nested stories that take the reader from the remote South Pacific in the nineteenth century to a distant, post-apocalyptic future." (Wikipedia)
I'm a little past halfway and I've really been enjoying the story. The above description mentions six nested stories, but it doesn't tell of the most aggravating thing about this book. The first half of the book has the first half of each of those six stories. I must admit I almost flung the book across the room when the second story ended so abruptly. But then again, it gives the reader good reason to keep reading and finish the book, as one of the most famous quotes of the book says, "A half-read book is a half-finished love affair."
I've been enjoying the read, anyone else out there had a chance to read it? Or has maybe seen the movie?
