In the information jungle we live in, it’s hard to make the right choices. This weekly column will help you with that. I won’t be telling you what to read, because you get enough of that already. Instead I’ll be telling you what not to read, because these books are not worth your time.
David Mitchell published yet another endless story that has something to do with time. Doesn’t sound like a must read to me. Reading the synopsis on Goodreads also didn’t do me any good:
After reading this, I still have no clue what this book is really about. There are a lot of characters and a bunch of shocking events? That’s all? Isn’t that almost every novel out there?
I might be biased as I already tried to read several novels by David Mitchell but never made it past the first 50 pages. It just wasn’t for me. Now, I know that some of you really love Mitchell’s work so If you still really want to read his last book, put it back down now! Continue reading, as some Mitchell lovers have lost all their love for his work after reading The Bone Clocks, so don’t say I didn’t warn you.
Maybe you didn’t read his work, but only watched the excruciatingly endless movie Cloud Atlas? If you liked it, you might decide to wait for this book to be turned into a movie as well. Well, you don’t have to do that either. I will save you a lot of time waiting for a movie that might not even be made by sharing some reviews that are spoilerific and give away the ending. You can find them here and here. No need to read the book or watch the movie whatsoever.
