Cloud Cuckoo Land by Anthony Doerr


Julie’s review;

Anthony Doerr at his finest, a cast of characters you get to know in depth; all their qualities and human flaws are revealed  through their stories which stretch across a range of time frames and settings. A celebration of the power of stories to connect us through time and space with pervading themes of family, love, hope and redemption.

I emerged from this book feeling that I had witnessed the vividly described events, had inhabited these places and met the characters within who had become like old friends, such is the power of Doerr’s storytelling.

Fans of Anthony Doerr’s earlier books will certainly not be disappointed by this epic and wide ranging tale and if you are yet to discover his writing, this is a wonderful place to start!

Fifteenth-century Constantinople. Present day Idaho. The future, and humanity’s last hope.

Across time and space, five young dreamers are bound by a single ancient text. Together, they tell a story of a world in peril; of the power of words, of resilience, and of hope against all odds.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of All the Light We Cannot See returns with a heart-breaking, magnificent epic of human connection and a love letter to storytelling itself.
