Am reading Cloud Atlas right now. I'm on the second story right now--the composer in Belgium--and while it's slow-moving, I am amazed by David Mitchell's writing ability. There are some young writers who get a lot of attention for, IMHO, gimmicks that mask what otherwise might be a mediocre talent (I immediately think of Markus Zusak and his Holocaust-pornish The Book Thief), but Mitchell is the real deal. I'm very, very, very impressed, and will definitely finish the book despite its slow pace.
