When WT opened the selection process for November and I saw the category I tuned-out, so I was surprised when I saw the choices for this month on the home page.

I finished Cloud Atlas in record time but that is because I pretty much 'scrolled' two lengthy chapters (two chapters per plot) cutting down considerably on the length. Now I realize why: they were science fiction. I must have misread the reviews because I would not have bought it had it been described as such. If I counted correctly it can be read as five independent sections, so you could skip a chapter—well, two—without losing continuity. I very much liked it...much better than Black Swan Green and can't imagine how it was made into a movie!

If it wins, I'll be curious to follow the discussion.
