By the author of THE THOUSAND AUTUMNS OF JACOB DE ZOET, David Mitchell's bestselling and Booker Prize-shortlisted novel, one of Richard & Judy's 100 Books of the Decade, CLOUD ATLAS has now been adapted for film. The major motion picture, directed by the Wachowskis and Tom Tykwer, stars Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon, Jim Sturgess, Ben Whishaw, Jim Broadbent and Hugh Grant.

The novel features six characters in interlocking stories, each interrupting the one before it: a reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan's California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified dinery server on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation. The narrators of CLOUD ATLAS hear each other's echoes down the corridor of history, and their destinies are changes in ways great and small.

A remarkable book ... there won't be a bigger, bolder novel this year., Guardian

An impeccable dance of genres . . . an elegiac, radiant festival of prescience, meditation and entertainment. -- Neel Mukherjee, The Times

A singular achievement, from an author of extraordinary ambition and skill. -- Matt Thorne, Independent on Sunday

David Mitchell entices his readers onto a rollercoaster, and at first they wonder if they want to get off. Then - at least in my case - they can't bear the journey to end. -- AS Byatt, Guardian

Mitchell's storytelling in Cloud Atlas is of the best. -- Lawrence Norfolk, Independent

Impeccably structured novel of ideas in many voices by a talent to watch. -- Literary Editor's Best Books, Observer
