THE BONE CLOCKS by David Mitchell

Similar in form to his inventive bestseller Cloud Atlas, David Mitchell’s sixth novel is actually a series of six related stories, dating from 1984 to 2043. The book, long-listed for the Man Booker Prize 2014, follows an eclectic cast of characters from a teenager and a nefarious Cambridge undergraduate to a British writer obsessed with taking revenge on a book critic. And if this weren’t enough, weaving throughout the plot is a sci-fi inspired war between two opposing bands of immortals called the Horologists and the Anchorites.
