Yeah, that’s all, really.
I read The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet awhile back, and it was excellent. And then everyone I talked to about it said, “Have you read Cloud Atlas?? Read Cloud Atlas next! Do it! Read Cloud Atlas!” (By “everyone” I mean four people. But I think four people is actually kind of a large number of people to unanimously have the same “oh-you-like-this-author? Read-this-next!” recommendation.)
And I was like, “Yeah, yeah, okay, whatever.” And then I didn’t read Cloud Atlas. Or I didn’t, until I did, just this week, and it was also really good (read: excellent), and now I’m blogging about it and reading Ghostwritten (which is also excellent so far).
So that’s my opinion, Internet.
Oh, also: word on the street is they’re making a Cloud Atlas movie. That’ll be somethin’.
