Points
  • Anthony Doerr is back with a third book, Cloud Cuckoo Land ($19, originally $30), which is bound to leave just as indelible of a mark on his readers as his previous bestselling novel, All the Light We Cannot See.
  • As Doerr expertly weaves together the lives of five people living in different time periods, he tells an ancient story within a story about Aethon, who seeks to find a utopian paradise in the sky called Cloud Cuckoo Land.
  • As each character faces the looming dangers in their own worlds - Anna and Omeir in fifteenth century Constantinople, Seymour and Zeno in present day Idaho, and Konstance a century or so in the future living on a ship flying through space - a story about the interconnectedness of all things in the universe unfolds, leaving you somehow feeling both deep despair and endless hope all at once.
  • Far from a beach read, Cloud Cuckoo Land is a beautiful novel that takes a bit of time to get into, but rewards those who persevere with a dazzling story that will stick with them for some time.
