Summary
Beginning in 1984 and moving in linear fashion through the years before ending in the 2040s, this complex, layered novel interweaves several different narratives to tell the story of a secret war between those who would steal souls and those who try to stop them. But it's also the story of Holly Sykes, who belongs to neither of these groups but whose life is nevertheless bound up in them. An expansive, globe-trotting book that takes on themes of aging, youth, and death, The Bone Clocks also features characters who have appeared in author David Mitchell's other books and incorporates genres from absolute realism to heady fantasy. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
