#18: The Bone Clocks (David Mitchell)

The Bone Clocks’ main narrative trick is not as amazing as Cloud Atlas’ — that’s the only other David Mitchell book I’ve read. (I want to read more after these two, though.) Still, it is an amazing unfolding of a book, throwing out a coil of story and then reeling it back in, over and over. Like the book I read before it (Acceptance), it doesn’t have an ending that resolves everything, but it does have one that feels like a real ending and resolves enough.
