I enjoyed the humor in this novel.

.....“A question, Luisa?”
.....“Yes. Is there a new editorial policy no one’s told me about that excludes articles containing truth?”
.....“Hey, metaphysics seminar is on the roof. Just take the elevator up and keep walking until you hit the sidewalk.”
..........— David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas (p. 99).
Quote:
.....Notice how people insert the ‘Mr.’ before sinking the blade in?
..........— David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas (p. 148).
And this is one fine example of literary humor:

Quote:
.....Despondency makes one hanker after lives one never led. Why have you given your life to books, TC? Dull, dull, dull! The memoirs are bad enough, but all that ruddy fiction! Hero goes on a journey, stranger comes to town, somebody wants something, they get it or they don’t, will is pitted against will. “Admire me, for I am a metaphor.”
..........— David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas (p. 169).
