    Precis vad man förväntar sig och vill ha av en David Mitchell-bok! Fantastiskt fantasifulla och drömmiga berättelser som, först till synes utan sammanhang, sakta vävs ihop till en stor berättelse. Hans förarbete måste vara helt otroligt gediget och ingenting känns lämnat åt slumpen.

    Den enda kritik man kanske kan ha är att boken till uppbyggnaden är väldigt lik flera av hans andra, och då är nog t ex ghostwritten eller number9dream lite bättre i mina ögon. Samtidigt, är detta den fö... Läs hela recensionen

An epic in many voices . . . a globe-trotting, mind-bending, hair-raising triumph * Guardian * He is funny, hip and full of life . . . a beautiful explosion of adventurous ideas * The Times * If only real life were as elegant and generally encouraging as a Mitchell novel! He writes with scintillating verve and abundance * Daily Telegraph * 600 pages of metafictional shenanigans in relentlessly brilliant prose . . . Death is at the heart of this novel. And there lies its depth and darkness, bravely concealed with all the wit and sleight of hand and ventriloquistic verbiage and tale-telling bravura of which Mitchell is a master . . . It's a whopper of a story -- Ursula K. Le Guin * Guardian * Fantastical, ambitious, bold and exuberant -- Viv Groskop, Books of the Year * Observer * An epic read * Evening Standard * No one, clearly, has ever told Mitchell that the novel is dead. He writes with a furious intensity and slapped-awake vitality, with a delight in language and all the rabbit holes of experience -- Pico Iyer * New York Times Book Review * A mind-spinning, genre-splicing time-travelling epic * Independent on Sunday * Mitchell's mesmerizing saga is evidence of the power of story to transport us, and even to stop time entirely * Vanity Fair * An extraordinary piece of storytelling -- Books of the Year * Evening Standard * A return to the exuberance and genre-hopping of Cloud Atlas, and a proper page-turner -- Stephanie Merritt, Books of the Year * Observer * Mitchell is a consummate craftsman . . . For sci-fi fantasists, the imaginary world Mitchell creates might be a thing of wonder, a Dungeons and Dragons for literate grown-ups. For others, I suspect the flesh and blood anguish of a long life lived well against the odds will prove the greater pleasure * Independent * Every page fizzes with energy and humour. Wildly imaginative and truly magical, this is a big, chunky feast of a book * Sunday Mirror * Dazzling . . . Mitchell's heavy arsenal of talents is showcased in these pages: his symphonic imagination; his ventriloquist's ability to channel the voices of myriad characters from different time zones and cultures; his intuitive understanding of children and knack for capturing their solemnity and humor; and his ear for language - its rhythms, sounds and inflections -- Michiko Kakutani * New York Times * Intellectually rigorous and stunningly imaginative . . . a rich and dense, inventive and witty thriller * Daily Express * With The Bone Clocks, Mitchell rises to meet and match the legacy of Cloud Atlas . . . interconnected lives stretch across time; human contact is both frightening and vital. This novel electrifyingly unites Mitchell's fictions into one universe while telling the story of Holly Sykes, an ordinary young woman whose chance encounters give her life meaning * Los Angeles Times * At once a gripping thriller and a far-out fantasy, a brilliant mash-up that pulsates with energy, satire and wit * Tatler * Combines fantastic inventiveness with depth and heart -- Books of the Year * Guardian * A divinely inventive author . . . This new novel offers up a rich selection of domestic realism, gothic fantasy and apocalyptic speculation, stretching around the world from the Margaret Thatcher era of the 1980s to the Endarkenment of 2043 . . . Some of these narrators are moving and sympathetic; others radiate the metastasizing creepiness of a Patricia Highsmith villain * Washington Post * If I could file a review that consisted only of the word "wow" 900 times over, it still wouldn't quite capture my delirious response to David Mitchell's stunning, funny, sad, prophetic, fantastical, satirical, achingly real and gloriously fictitious new novel * Scotsman * It's massively bold and ambitious, but also thoroughly readable, funny and moving * Heat * Our most accomplished inventor of multitudinous worlds, which are filled with complex, vital people . . .
