Book Review by Josh Hickman
Bone Clocks: a novel, David Mitchell
Like Mitchell's Cloud Atlas, this is a sprawling work that takes place in several different settings and time periods. Mitchell writes terrific prose and tells a great story about one woman through the eyes of people who meet her at different points in her life. Throughout, there's an ongoing war between supernatural beings that impacts the lives of the characters. I recommend it for fans of Mitchell's other works.
