March Books David Mitchell-The Bone Clocks



David Mitchell – The Bone Clocks

I’ve read and enjoyed all of David Mitchell’s previous books and I’m pleased to say that it’s also true of The Bone Clocks. I know some people find his books confusing or difficult at times, however I always find them worth any effort involved.

The Bone Clocks is a familiar brew of realism, science fiction and fantasy with the main protagonist, Holly, featuring throughout the separate sequential sections that progress the novel. The sections are as follows.

A Hot Spell, 1984

The Myrrh is Mine, Its Bitter Perfume, 1991

The Wedding Bash, 2004

Crispin Hershey’s Lonely Planet, 2015

An Horologist’s Labyrinth, 2025

Sheep’s Head, 2043

Two particularly interesting characters are the author Crispin Hershey, fairly obviously based on Martin Amis and Hugo Lamb whose story is told in marvellous Amisesque fashion circa his novel  “Money”.

If you have liked his previous novels, then you will enjoy this. If you have never read a Mitchell novel, then this would be a good place to start.
