Staff Review: The Cloud Atlas which you Don’t yet Know

If you accidentally picked this title up thinking it was the novel-to-film piece, you’re not alone! Such a mistake may turn out to be a pleasant surprise, however. Liam Callanan’s The Cloud Atlas serves as an unusual World War II historical fiction. Through a small yet powerful force of castaway characters (an army captain turned priest, a psychotic army sergeant, and a Russian-Alaskan prostitute), Callanan manages to balance language and plot. As a conflicted love triangle, the characters chase Japanese incendiary balloons, as well as spirits that haunt their past and future across the frozen Alaskan land. At times the novel seems a bit drawn-out, yet to the effect that Callanan builds suspense. Come visit the Chester County Library in Exton to retrieve your copy of the book eBook, or eAudiobook today!
