This is the kind of book that could power a revolution. not sure who I'd recommend it to because its complicated style makes it an unusual (and at times challenging) read, but I'm so glad it was recommended to me. I am sure I'll remember Sonmi, Luisa, and Frobisher for a long time to come as well as the ultimate messages within about corporate greed, enslavement and the need for rebellion against all odds. Mitchell's ability to switch between prose styles and to concoct so many intertwined, believable worlds all orchestrated into this symphony is astounding. If you love Melville like you love Nabakov like you love Wilde like you love Murakami, this is for you.
