Yeah I don't think that whole connectivity through multiple lives things worked at all.

It seems to have worked quite well in Jennifer Egan's "Visit from the Goon Squad" (inter-connectedness theme), but I haven't read "Cloud Atlas" yet, so can't comment, but I certianly understand and share your point.

Whew. Glad I'm not the only one who was less than impressed with this. The first half of the book drove me nuts, constantly dropping off and starting completely anew. I felt like I had to reset my brain over and over. My favorite section of the book was the Zachary story where - surprise - it feels like a complete story. Not terribly impressed.

If you want a more straightforward David Mitchell story, try Black Swan Green or The Thousand Summers of Jacob De Zoet.
