The Yearling
Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings
Cloud Atlas - David Mitchell I admired this a bit, but I didn't fully enjoy it.I found the structure of this disrupted my engagement; I would just about start to be interested in a couple of the stories and they were cut off. This didn't have the effect of making me want to keep going to get to the next section, it just made me less willing to pick it up again. I also found the meta-fictional comments on the previous section annoying and distracting - don't tell me what to think! or pretend you know what I'm thinking, whichever. I particularly enjoyed the Sonmi and Frobisher sections, the rest I was just not that taken with.
