The story was good but the narrator let it down. Her voice felt flat, like her heart wasn’t in it.

Earth is dying. Thousands of workers, who live in the vast caves beneath Mars, mine the precious elements that will make the planet habitable. They are Earth’s only hope. Until the day Darrow learns that it’s a lie. Mars has been habitable - and inhabited - for generations. Darrow disguises himself and infiltrates their society, intent on taking them down. But the surface is a battlefield - and Darrow isn't the only one with an agenda.

I am only reviewing the narrator.

The concept for the book is brilliant but for the 2 or 3 hours I listened before I had to return the book all I could picture in my head was a leprechaun. The narrators accent is so strong I couldn’t focus on the story.

Cloud Atlas features six characters in interlocking stories, each interrupting the one before it: a reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan's California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified dinery server on death row; and Zachry, a young Pacific islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation.

What disappointed you about Cloud Atlas?

Everything. the story line just doesn't captivate my interest.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

Didn't get to it.

How could the performance have been better?

Speed up the story a bit. it just drags on

What character would you cut from Cloud Atlas?

.

Any additional comments?

You may enjoy it but on the whole. was the worst book i've tried
