Book: The Bone Clocks

Author: David Mitchell

Reviewer: Karen Ciccone, Director Natural Resources Library & Research Librarian for Science Informatics

David Mitchell's The Bone Clocks is time travel. It begins in a 1984 that is true to memory and ends in a 2043 that is equally believable. One of the characters states then, "My generation were diners stuffing ourselves senseless at the Restaurant of the Earth's Riches knowing -- while denying -- that we'd be doing a runner and leaving our grandchildren with a tab that can never be paid." Having vicariously lived that lifetime through this book has changed my perspective on now.
