The Hachette Essentials series comprises a collection of titles that are regarded as modern classics. A carefully and lovingly curated selection of distinctive, ground-breaking fiction and non-fiction titles published since 1950. Timeless. Relevant. Passionate. Unified as a series - distinctive as books. A good book is great. A great book is essential.

Souls cross ages like clouds cross skies . . .

Six interlocking lives - one amazing adventure. In a narrative that circles the globe and reaches from the 19th century to a post-apocalyptic future, Cloud Atlas erases the boundaries of time, genre and language to offer an enthralling vision of humanity's will to power, and where it will lead us.

Impeccably structured novel of ideas in many voices by a talent to watch. -- Literary Editor's Best Books * Observer * Mitchell's storytelling in Cloud Atlas is of the best. -- Lawrence Norfolk * Independent * David Mitchell entices his readers onto a rollercoaster, and at first they wonder if they want to get off. Then - at least in my case - they can't bear the journey to end. -- AS Byatt * Guardian * A singular achievement, from an author of extraordinary ambition and skill. -- Matt Thorne * Independent on Sunday * An impeccable dance of genres . . . an elegiac, radiant festival of prescience, meditation and entertainment. -- Neel Mukherjee * The Times * A remarkable book ... there won't be a bigger, bolder novel this year. * Guardian *
