Following a scalding row with her mother, fifteen-year-old Holly Sykes slams the door on her old life. But Holly is no typical teenage runaway: a sensitive child once contacted by voices she knew only as "the radio people," Holly is a lightning rod for psychic phenomena. Now, as she wanders deeper into the English countryside, visions and coincidences reorder her reality until they assume the aura of a nightmare brought to life. For Holly has caught the attention of a cabal of dangerous mystics -- and their enemies. But her lost weekend is merely the prelude to a shocking disappearance that leaves her family irrevocably scarred. This unsolved mystery will echo through every decade of Holly's life, affecting all the people Holly loves -- even the ones who are not yet born. A Cambridge scholarship boy grooming himself for wealth and influence, a conflicted father who feels alive only while reporting from occupied Iraq, a middle-aged writer mourning his exile from the bestseller list -- all have a part to play in this surreal, invisible war on the margins of our world. From the medieval Swiss Alps to the nineteenth-century Australian bush, from a hotel in Shanghai to a Manhattan townhouse in the near future, their stories come together in moments of everyday grace and extraordinary wonder.… (lisätietoja)

Totally superlative. I loved every bit of this, as much or maybe more than "Cloud Atlas"
There are his usual hints and references to his previous books but here is a suggestion that they are all included in one overall meta-fiction or indeed all organically grown from one central idea--- The reincarnation or transmigration of souls. ( )

I just can't even describe right now so just accept this link to David Mitchell reading from the book.

Ok David Mitchell. You are the best ( )

There's so much to like, the writing and voice is amazing, the scope and ambition also amazing. Holly is the most compulsively readable of the characters. To be honest I'd read an entire non spec fic book just about her life.

The speculative elements felt intrusive and confusing at times, and Mitchell moves perspective in a way that only litfic can get away with (watch a genre book get shot down in flames for attempting that!) I was perhaps less interested in the speculative elements than the real world ones, which had muddled worldbuilding at times and mysterious motivations in excess.

However, I can forgive those vagaries as a) being an intentional style choice and b) this isn't considered a downside in litfic, afaik. Genre fiction tends to have stricter standards for its worldbuilding than litfic.

Some of the characters were excellent, even though I disliked them as people. Crispin Hershey was a fucking pathetic human being yet really compelling and interesting, and I did feel sorry for him overall. Hugo Lamb, though was hard to read, I found him so unpleasant. I'm glad he hasnt' got many sections.

There is just SO MUCH going on in the novel... so many references, analyses, musings, cultural dips and dives, a billion different things. It's long, but not wordy or airy; every sentence is packed.

I would very much recommend this novel for fans of 15 Lives of Harry August (Claire North) as there are many similar and overlapping themes, but done in a very different way. ( )

First of all, yay! David Mitchell is back to his old narrator-switching, globe-trotting, time-hopping ways, which makes me so, so happy. That being said, while I enjoyed reading it, so much of this book feels like... surplus. Okay, maybe surplus is too harsh a word... You know about The Lord of the Rings Extended Edition that has hours of deleted scenes, right? Big fans will enjoy them, but their absence doesn't really detract from the version shown in theaters. Well, The Bone Clocks is essentially the Extended Edition bonus material to the rest of Mitchell's work.

And I hate saying that. The central conflict is a showdown between Good and Evil worthy of any of the fantasy stories I grew up reading. The problem is that out of six narratives, this Great War is only touched upon tangentially within the first four, then revealed and resolved pretty much entirely in the fifth. The rest of the book is - ugh, I hate saying it - padding. Wonderfully written padding, but padding. The Crispin Hershey chapters are particularly aggravating. (Incidentally, J. K. Rowling's latest book was also about the cliquey world of publishing. Someone needs to tell authors that it is not as interesting as they think it is.)

The bright side? Minor characters from other novels pop up. Besides making you feel clever when you spot them, they often prove to be more significant than they originally appeared. An unscrupulous older cousin from [b:Black Swan Green|14316|Black Swan Green|David Mitchell|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320562118s/14316.jpg|2166883] draws the attention of a dangerous cult. A Dutch doctor from [b:The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet|7141642|The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet|David Mitchell|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1320540908s/7141642.jpg|7405757] proves to be a different breed altogether. The Bone Clocks ends with the dawning of the apocalyptic world seen in [b:Cloud Atlas|49628|Cloud Atlas|David Mitchell|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1406383769s/49628.jpg|1871423].. While these revelations shed new light on Mitchell’s other work – especially Jacob de Zoet, which I really did not care for - I do not know if that light can be recognized or appreciated unless you have read at least one of his other novels. Or possibly all of them.

Mitchell's plotting is as intricate as ever, and he indulges in many familiar tricks. Themes, characters and images recur in different configurations, as in a complex musical work; characters from earlier Mitchell books make guest appearances; there are sly references to Mitchell's literary reputation, as well as to the works of other writers....

Mitchell is a writer who will always do his own thing, and the question to ask about his work isn't how profound it is, or what category it belongs to, but how much fun it is to read. And on that measure, The Bone Clocks scores highly.
 
In fact, Holly’s emergence from “The Bone Clocks” as the most memorable and affecting character Mr. Mitchell has yet created is a testament to his skills as an old-fashioned realist, which lurk beneath the razzle-dazzle postmodern surface of his fiction, and which, in this case, manage to transcend the supernatural nonsense in this arresting but bloated novel.
 
Another exacting, challenging and deeply rewarding novel from logophile and time-travel master Mitchell

I fling open my bedroom curtains, and there's the thirsty sky and the wide river full of ships and boats and stuff, but I'm already thinking of Vinny's chocolaty eyes, shampoo down Vinny's back, beads of sweat on Vinny's shoulders, and Vinny's sly laugh, and by now my heart's going mental and, God, I wish I was waking up in Vinny's place in Peacock Street and not in my own stupid bedroom.

The fantasy subplot clashes so violently with the State of the World pretensions, I cannot bear to look.
What surer sign is there that the creative aquifers are dry than a writer creating a writer character?
My hero is a Cambridge student called Richard Cheeseman, working on a novel about a Cambridge student called Richard Cheeseman, working on a novel about a Cambridge student called Richard Cheeseman. No one’s ever tried anything like it.
