Staff Reviews


The scope of this book and its many intertwined stories is just breathtaking. Each section, each time period, reads like its own novel and Mitchell conveys each character's voice in a unique way. The thread that connects them all together across centuries is what makes this book incredible.

Fall '12 Reading Group List


“This is perhaps the most ambitious, complex, and brilliant novel I have ever read. Mitchell takes six completely different storylines, written in six distinct genre styles -- from pulp mystery novel to pidgin English-laden sci-fi -- set in six completely different time periods ranging from the 1800s South Pacific to far into a post-apocalyptic future, and chops them up and blends them to form one seamless, intricate, awe-inspiring saga of humanity. When your copy seemingly ends mid-sentence on page 39, please trust me and keep reading!”
— Seth Marko, UCSD Bookstore, La Jolla, CA
