short shameful confession #27

As part of my “reading lots of books” project, I started reading Cloud Atlas (kindle edition) over the holidays.  Quite frankly, I’d been completely underwhelmed by it but kept plugging away because of the hype assuming that it would eventually get better.  Eveon so, yesterday, as I was sort of slogging through a low point in the narrative I clicked through to the “home” screen on my kindle and realized, with a sigh of relief, that I was nearly finished with the book.  And it wasn’t until that point that I logged into goodreads to consult all of the ah-mazing reviews of this book and finally figured out that…all this time I’d been reading the wrong book.

Because, apparently, The Cloud Atlas is not the Cloud Atlas.
