One summer's day in 1984, teenage runaway Holly Sykes encounters a strange woman who offers a small kindness in exchange for 'asylum'. Decades will pass before Holly understands what sort of asylum the woman was seeking.…
The Bone Clocks follows Holly's life: not so far out of the ordinary, yet punctuated by flashes of precognition, visits from people who emerge from thin air, and brief lapses in the laws of reality.
"No other British novelist, to my mind, combines such a darkly futuristic intelligence with such polyphonic ease." (
"Open up Mitchell's head and a whole magical, ecstatic symphony of inventiveness and ideas will fly out as if from a benign and felicitous Pandora's box. Read him." ( The Times)

I definitely would, though nothing would be as good as the first time listening. When newly read, you're constantly thinking about what's going to happen next and you'll get lost in all the knooks and crannies.
I can't quite put my finger on it. It was just so immersing. I loved how it was written, this book is so complicated but not once (rare for me) did I get confused.
I really liked that each character had their own narrator, I felt a lot more empathy for each character because of it.
There were so many! The ending was very moving for me but I don't want to give the story away.
If you want a book that's going to pull you in and keep you there then I'd definitely give this a go.
