The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell
" I just finished it and man, disappointed.

Huge fan of his, have read every one of his books. Just...didn't go anywhere with so many things!

The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell
"The Bone Clocks feels like a summary, a drawing together of all David Mitchell’s work thus far. Themes he has been exploring his entire writing life are the heart of this book, and by returning to an idea he first explored in Ghostwritten - that t..." Read more of this review »

"[UPDATE 10.16]

Here is the review that this book deserves: please read this and not mine. My review is not worth reading.

I'm such a drama queen.

This is all planned out: I imagined a ceremonious return to goodr..." Read more of this review »

The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell
"I adore David Mitchell. To pieces. No novel has simultaneously so moved and impressed and entertained me as has Cloud Atlas, and I will always be an enthusiastic Mitchell devotee / groupie / fan-girl.

But did I adore The Bone Clocks?

Iris Murdoch
“Art and morality are, with certain provisos…one. Their essence is the same. The essence of both of them is love. Love is the perception of individuals. Love is the extremely difficult realization that something other than oneself is real. Love, and so art and morals, is the discovery of reality. ”
Iris Murdoch

Mark Twain
“Never allow someone to be your priority while allowing yourself to be their option.”
Mark Twain

Orson Welles
“My doctor told me to stop having intimate dinners for four. Unless there are three other people.”
Orson Welles

Margaret Atwood
“How could I have been so ignorant? she thinks. So stupid, so unseeing, so given over to carelessness. But without such ignorance, such carelessness, how could we live? If you knew what was going to happen, if you knew everything that was going to happen next—if you knew in advance the consequences of your own actions—you'd be doomed. You'd be as ruined as God. You'd be a stone. You'd never eat or drink or laugh or get out of bed in the morning. You'd never love anyone, ever again. You'd never dare to.”
Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin
