Although somewhat late to the party, I would like to start reading David Mitchell. But I'm torn regarding which work to start with.
Naturally, Cloud Atlas came first, so there's an inherent argument to start there. Plus, it's my understanding that one or more characters from CA recur in TTAoJdZ. So it could be beneficial to encounter them in proper sequence.
But TTAoJdZ is chronologically linear, evidently, unlike CA. So something's nagging at me to start here, then go back and deal with the time-jumbled CA.
Anyone have any thoughts on the subject?? I've got a few nice, long flights coming up, and Mitchell would be an excellent travel companion! Many thanks in advance for sharing your views.
