Sneak Peek of THE BONE CLOCKS by David Mitchell

Ooooooh, Raul scored an advance copy of The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell. Here’s what he has to say:

“Mitchell has a marvelous way of describing characters who are willing to risk everything for friendship and love. His writing will grab your attention for its emotional complexity and imaginative play on what is and what could be. Holly Sykes’s story shows that despite the ravages of the world, both real and supernatural, a person can be true to oneself and bloom into someone better.  The under-aged runaway who begins her story has no idea how the voices in her head will affect her future. The young woman she becomes nurses the loss of a little brother without understanding how this could be used against her. As a mature woman she confronts a nightmarish evil with a small band of unlikely psychic warriors, deciding the fate of mankind in the balance, and as an elderly lady in the last days of civilization she must trust an old friendship to sustain her promise to take care of her family – a sacrifice that has resonance with everyone who has had to put aside one’s interests to encourage someone else.”

This is one of the most highly anticipated books of the Fall season! Fans of Cloud Atlas and The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet likely already have this novel on their radar. The Bone Clocks arrives on our shelves September 2nd. We’re now accepting pre-orders. (And no, Raul is NOT accepting bribes for the advance copy.)

  1. So jealous, I love Mitchell, Cloud Atlas and Jacob de Zoet’s thousand autumns… I cannot wait, pity Raoul is not amenable to bribes 🙂
