Esquire Middle East
CLOUD CUCKOO LAND
If you liked Doerr’s previous novel All The Light We Cannot See, this takes the complexity further. Spanning five main characters across three times arcs, the narrative may get a little think in the middle, especially with the switching POVS that’s not in chronological order. Including an interstellar ship, ancient Greek alphabets and more, they all ultimately come together as a love letter to libraries and reading that most bookworms can appreciate.
