Wishful Wednesday [13]

Aduh, lamanya saya tidak meng-update blog… Pemanasan dengan Wishful Wednesday dulu deh, blog meme seri dari Astrid!🙂

WW-ku kali ini adalah buku David Mitchell, yang filmnya sepertinya juga menjadi wajib-tonton, Cloud Atlas.

Sudah lama tertarik banget baca buku ini karena sepertinya suatu karya yang merombak pakem penulisan yang biasa, orisinil. Terdiri atas beberapa cerita yang tampaknya berdiri sendiri-sendiri yang membawa kita ke tempat dan jaman yang saling terentang jauh, namun pada ujungnya sebenarnya saling terkait. Kontemporer sekaligus filosofis! Karya brilian yang bikin ngiler…🙂

A postmodern visionary who is also a master of styles of genres, David Mitchell combines flat-out adventure, a Nabokovian lore of puzzles, a keen eye for character, and a taste for mind-bending philosophical and scientific speculation in the tradition of Umberto Eco and Philip K. Dick. The result is brilliantly original fiction that reveals how disparate people connect, how their fates intertwine, and how their souls drift across time like clouds across the sky.

In his captivating third novel, Mitchell erases the boundaries of language, genre, and time to offer a meditation on humanity’s dangerous will to power, and where it may lead.

Now a major motion picture starring Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Susan Sarandon, and Hugh Grant, and directed by Lana and Andy Wachowski and Tom Tykwer!

Apa Wishful Wednesday-mu?🙂
