About this item

Now a major motion picture starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon, and Hugh Grant, and directed by Lana and Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer

Includes a new Afterword by David Mitchell

A postmodern visionary who is also a master of styles and genres, David Mitchell combines flat-out adventure, a Nabokovian love of puzzles, a keen eye for character, and a taste for mind-bending philosophical and scientific speculation in the tradition of Haruki Murakami, Umberto Eco, and Philip K. Dick. The result is brilliantly original fiction that reveals how disparate people connect, how their fates intertwine, and how their souls drift across time like clouds across the sky.

[David] Mitchell is, clearly, a genius. He writes as though at the helm of some perpetual dream machine, can evidently do anything, and his ambition is written in magma across this novels every page. The New York Times Book Review

One of those how-the-holy-hell-did-he-do-it? modern classics that no doubt isand should beread by any student of contemporary literature. Dave Eggers

Wildly entertaining... a head rush, both action-packed and chillingly ruminative. People

The novel as series of nested dolls or Chinese boxes, a puzzle-book, and yetnot just dazzling, amusing, or clever but heartbreaking and passionate, too. Ive never read anything quite like it, and Im grateful to have lived, for a while, in all its many worlds. Michael Chabon

I ordered this thinking it was a DVD. My bad. Now I have to read it instead of watch it. What a fool.

4.0 stars by theshelbstinator

I giggle a bit to mention, but I do find it funny to have to mention that this IS, in fact, a book. I have never before watched a paperback movie. Or one with pages. Or... one with an ISBN number. That said, it is a good book. Very engaging. It spreads out through time, places, and characters like ripples in a pond, and is very graceful.
