In doing so, Mitchell writes six connected novellas that show Holly in two different worlds. These are: Here, BTW, is Holly reflecting on her dystopian world.

Rounded up and recommended. Paperback Verified Purchase. The hardest thing to understand about this book is why so many critics panned it. I have to strongly disagree. TBC is complex and, like the labyrinth central to its story, it relies on a series of stops and starts, blind alleys, abrupt turns-- all leading one way, to ultimate clarity. The characterizations are, without exception, as solid and three-dimensional often four-dimensional as any in Cloud Atlas, which this most recent novel is compared to quite frequently.

But, where Cloud Atlas follows separate characters in different times, TBC tracks its characters the same characters throughout time. Immortal souls jump from body to body like fleas on a dog.

Battles are won and lost in an alternate universe where Cathars maintain a semblance of unholy life and where "good" and "bad" aeons fight for the souls of men. Crispin starts a brief relationship with Holly's Spanish-language agent, one that later results in a son.

He is visited by the newly released Cheeseman, now wearing an eyepatch. Crispin believes him to be the one-eyed man of Holly's prophecy. Cheeseman confronts him and tells him he spent his time in jail fantasising about killing Crispin, but at the climactic moment, he decides not to, and leaves. Just afterwards, Crispin is visited by Soleil Moore, whom he does not remember, and who is horrified that he still has not read the works she gave him.

She tells him he is part of "the Script" and that humans are being used and abused by higher beings, and she hoped Crispin would help her publish her works so this would become widespread knowledge. She then goes to her Plan B and shoots Crispin, knowing that the murder will make her and her work infamous. Before he dies, Crispin sees spirals on the carpet, a dead spider between a filing cabinet and the wall, and a toy pirate with an eye patch, thus fulfilling Holly's prophecy.

Marinus is a being who has reincarnated into many bodies, including the doctor who once cured Holly of her "radio people" as a child and the doctor who helped put Holly's cancer into remission under the name Iris Fenby. Through Esther's messages Marinus realizes that Esther Little has been stowed away inside of Holly's memories since Marinus in her current form as Iris Fenby contacts Holly and reveals herself to be part of a group of "atemporals" who call themselves Horologists.

Atemporals are beings who are naturally immortal, and either come back 49 days after the death of their previous host body into the body of a child who was already dying, or are able to transfer their souls into dying children when new bodies wear out. The atemporals' reincarnation processes are natural and harm no one, unlike their enemies, the Anchorites, who achieve their immortality by draining the souls of psychically gifted children into something called "Black Wine", which halts the ageing process.

In one final revelation, Marinus explains that Holly's brother, Jacko, was in fact an atemporal leader called Xi Lo, inhabiting Jacko's body, and the child's seeming disappearance was actually due to Xi Lo falling in battle during the Horologist's first mission in Holly is naturally skeptical, but after she is almost killed by a group of Anchorites she decides to work with Marinus and the Horologists.

Marinus is able to locate Esther in Holly's memory and extract her by saying her 'long name', which is a compilation of all the names she has ever had throughout her various lifetimes.

They then make a plan to go to the Chapel of the Blind Cathar in order to try to destroy its icon and thus the source of the Anchorites' power.

The Bone Clocks

The Blind Cathar, a heretic monk who willed the Chapel of the Dusk into being and has since become one with it, is the source of the Anchorites' rituals, and to destroy him and the temple would end their ability to prey on mortals. The Horologists engage in a "psychosoteric" war with the Anchorites that kills many of the Horologists but manages to buy Esther Little enough time to destroy the Blind Cathar.

Marinus' body is destroyed, but she climbs inside Holly's mind and is able to protect her this way. As the chapel is crumbling around them, an opening appears and Holly goes through it. She realizes the space is actually the maze Jacko gave her in and asked her to memorize, and is able to find her way through. Marinus manages to distract her long enough for Holly to club her with a rolling pin. At the centre of the maze is a golden apple. Marinus leaves Holly's mind and asks her to touch it, transporting her to safety.

Marinus realizes she has been left behind with Hugo Lamb, who admits that the reason he did not take the golden apple himself and leave Holly to die was because he truly loved Holly during their brief encounter together.

Just as they are about to die, Marinus realizes there is another possible way for them to escape. It has been five years since a period called the Endarkenment, during which climate change brought about a depletion of resources, and people are now forced to live off the land combined with government rationing.

Holly is taking care of her teenage granddaughter Lorelei, orphaned after the death of her parents in a plane crash, and an orphaned young boy called Rafiq. Despite the fact that the rest of Europe is suffering terribly, Ireland is relatively stable due to the fact that the Chinese have brokered a deal with them, giving them oil and sporadic internet usage in return for leasing some of their land.

However, the Chinese abruptly pull their resources and, despite promises that the Irish government will be able to keep things stable, a mixture of rogue government troops and militiamen invade the town, taking solar panels and oil.

Over an argument on how to split their resources, the invaders begin shooting at each other, sparing most of the locals and leaving them time to form a small militia of their own. Back at Holly's home, a military vessel arrives asking for Holly Sykes by name. The vessel reveals that it is from Iceland , where law and order still prevails, and has been sent to repatriate Lorelei, whose father was from Iceland. One of the crew members is revealed to be the reincarnated Marinus.

Holly asks him to use his powers of mind control to take Rafiq with Lorelei as he is diabetic and his insulin is running out. Marinus reveals that he has just enough skill to get the Icelandic soldiers to take both Lorelei and Rafiq with him, but Holly must be left behind. Holly says goodbye to her grandchildren, knowing she will likely never see them in person again, but resigned to her fate if it gives Lorelei and Rafiq a new beginning at life.

Characters[ edit ] Holly Sykes: the spunky daughter of publicans who was once plagued by what she thought were auditory hallucinations. Hugo Lamb: an amoral university student who is recruited into the Anchorites.

Finding Crispin's answers satisfactory, Hugo then wipes his memory, but not before hinting of telling Cheeseman that Crispin put him in prison. Later during the trip, Crispin learns Holly has cancer and likely has very little time to live. A new doctor, named Iris Fenby, wants Holly to try an experimental new treatment.

Crispin starts a brief relationship with Holly's Spanish-language agent, one that later results in a son.

He is visited by the newly released Cheeseman, now wearing an eyepatch. Crispin believes him to be the one-eyed man of Holly's prophecy. Cheeseman confronts him and tells him he spent his time in jail fantasising about killing Crispin, but at the climactic moment, he decides not to, and leaves.
