The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell
Disappointing, but what was he going to do next? I was doubtful but willing to try to believe he could pull off another interconnected-novellas-including-the-future, but the sixth section, "An Horologist's Labyrinth," lost me. The fantasy/sci fi stuff just made my mind go numb. Gorgeous writing all over the place, great characters, great settings, the huge presence of lived-life feel that Mitchell so soundly delivered in Cloud Atlas and The Thousand Autumns, but in the end, a solid, sad, Nope from me.
