|Product Alert: This book does not contain a misprint on page 39. We have received complaints from customers that they have received misprinted editions because of the way the story changes direction in the middle of a word on page 39 (for Kindle readers, the end of the first section). This is not a misprint or error. It is the way the author has written the book. He returns to the seemingly abandoned storyline later in the book.|

Not white-girls-talking-about-dessert amazing, but truly amazing. Still one of my favorite novels of all time and handily one of the best contemporary novels of the last 50 years... Read morePublished 6 days ago by Snaps
I am a voracious reader who also loves film. I enjoyed the film so much the innuendo that the book would be even more complex and enjoyable drove me to make the purchase. Read morePublished 10 days ago by RIP Buddy Pupalowski

|Perfect example of ridiculous e-book pricing by publishers||
I totally agree. The fact that the kindle version is $11.99 and I can have them SHIP (free) a PHYSICAL book ($9) is stupid. I understand the reason WHY these prices are like that (can't completely price-out brick & mortars, abandon distributors/physical publishers). Once e-readers begin to... Read More

|What was corrected in Cloud Atlas correction?||
Hmm. I just encountered a logical inconsistency that is troubling me no end... and I'm wondering if in fact this might be something that's been corrected in a new version! Here's my observation:
In the chapter 'Sloosha's Crossin', the opening section describes Zachry's first encounter with... Read More

|Kindle version missing part of first story||
Just keep reading!
About 1/2 way [maybe 3/4] through chapter 2 it should make sense. Consider it a test. I think many people will find/have found it an unfair artifice. But it's what this book is. Personally, I loved it soooooo much.
Good luck, Alex!

|Dissapointing that the publisher is charging 33% MORE for the kindle...||
Pure greed at work There is absolutely NO reason for the paperback to be less expensive than the e-book! I will not pay any more than $9.99 for ANY e-book, no matter how badly I want to read it. There's still libraries.
