    Just finished THE BONE CLOCKS by David Mitchell. Started off in the assumption that it would be literary fiction but then it turned into a fantasy novel – on the Booker longlist, no less! Anyone else read it?

    • I read half, into the Crsipin Hershey section, then just had to put it down. I’ll saw why: His reliance on nostalgia for the 80’s + 90’s, (and the 70’s, in Black Swan Green, which I did finish) like a dull, basso continuo with cheap appeal, wore me out. I’m sad because he’s obviously brilliant – and the titles of his books are so alluring.

    • Interesting. The last section was excellent, it’s set in the 2040s.
