The Bone Clocks, by David Mitchell
David Mitchell is one of my favorite writers, a man who blends elements of fantasy and nonfiction into his beautiful literary fiction. If you enjoyed any of his previous books (among them The Cloud Atlas and The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet), or if you think you might like a writer who combines the best of Neil Gaiman and Margaret Atwood, then The Bone Clocks is for you.
Mitchell is a master mimic, able to give voice to all sorts of characters; The Bone Clocks includes a working class teenage girl, a hilariously outspoken and egotistical writer, and a psychiatrist whose soul is 800 years old.
Too, Mitchell is not afraid to use fiction to address existential issues, as here, when he takes on climate change and the political upheaval that is bound to follow in its wake.
Yes, this is a dystopian novel, but it will leave you believing in the power of one good person.
“Once again, Mitchell's inventiveness and imagination prove to be nothing short of genius. He combines dark fantasy, boldly original prose, and finely drawn characters who will keep the reader riveted from Holly Sykes' initial angst-ridden teen thought to the very last, hopeful sentence. Mitchell proves once again that he is a writer of no equal when it comes to the invention of language, place, and time, taking the reader to the edge of both the real and the imagined as if he were guiding you personally by the hand. I will not have to persuade anyone into enjoying The Bone Clocks!”
