The Bone Clocks

LONGLISTED FOR THE MAN BOOKER PRIZE 2014

One drowsy summer's day in 1984, teenage runaway Holly Sykes encounters a strange woman who offers a small kindness in exchange for 'asylum'. Decades will pass before Holly understands exactly what sort of asylum the woman was seeking . . .

The Bone Clocks follows the twists and turns of Holly's life from a scarred adolescence in Gravesend to old age on Ireland's Atlantic coast as Europe's oil supply dries up - a life not so far out of the ordinary, yet punctuated by flashes of precognition, visits from people who emerge from thin air and brief lapses in the laws of reality. For Holly Sykes - daughter, sister, mother, guardian - is also an unwitting player in a murderous feud played out in the shadows and margins of our world, and may prove to be its decisive weapon.

Metaphysical thriller, meditation on mortality and chronicle of our self-devouring times, this kaleidoscopic novel crackles with the invention and wit that have made David Mitchell one of the most celebrated writers of his generation. Here is fiction at its most spellbinding and memorable best.

As always the content of David Mitchell's books is very difficult to describe, because it consist (mostly) of stories about people who have met very briefly, touching each others life's for maybe a day or two - then go their seperate ways.

Mitchell accompanies each of these individuals for a considerably short time until they are replaced by someone else who incidentally joins the storyline.
Added to (t)his usual storyline is a touch of the supernatural in "The Bone Clocks", in a world where foreign spirits seek out human hosts. All the men who have been "inhabited" by these souls meet earlier or later in this book, whereupon each meeting either turns out to be an intimate one or one that ends in a total desaster during which one of the participants - or let's rather say: one of the human hosts - finds their untimely end.

The structure of the storyline and the variety of different enunciations in this book are very closely modelled on Mitchell's first book "Ghostwritten" and on his bestseller "Cloud Atlas", which turns "The Bone Clocks" once more into very challenging reading matter that makes you wonder why nearly every other work of fiction suddenly seems dull in comparison David Mitchell's writing style.
I don't mean to diminish other examples of extraordinary fiction but once you've read an English (!) book written by David Mitchell you find nearly everything else quite relaxing and easy to read. Enjoy this remarkable ride through all the diversity that the English language (and in fact all the other languages that David Mitchell has mastered) has to offer!

So looking to your next book, David Mitchell!
