David Mitchell is a genius
on January 12, 2015
Genius writing. So much of the story is open to interpretation. I'm torn on a favorite story/character. Sonmi is obviously a stand out, but all of the characters and stories are so gripping. Haven't seen the movie. Look forward to watching the book come to life.
This book came recommended by a friend and so many people told me how the movie sucked so I was apprehensive. I think the issue is a lot of people don't understand the story because so much is left unexplained by the author. It's up to the reader to draw his/her own conclusions, especially with Sloosha's crossing. I loved how the middle of the book is actually the end, and the end of the book is actually the beginning. Brilliant.
I'm going to re-read this after I watch the movie to see if I can pick up any new details in the book.
Happy reading friends!
