Cloud Atlas

Cloud Atlas - David Mitchell I read it a while back and I thought it was an amazing book. Particularly because when I read it I hadn't read reviews or really knew much about it. The structure was puzzling to begin with (indeed you don't realise how it works until you've read over half of the book and it all comes together). All the stories were interesting in their right and the combination worked even better. Writing about different eras, characters, and situations so compellingly. One of those writers one can't help but admire.
