Publisher's Summary

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.


What the Critics Say

"No other British novelist, to my mind, combines such a darkly futuristic intelligence with such polyphonic ease" (Sunday Times)
"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)

"Loved it" is too minor a term

Beautifully poetic, intricately woven and delicately told. This was my first Mitchell book and will be buying all others in the hopes they can live up to this beautiful story. I'll keep Holly in my heart forever. Also a great "thank you" to the narrators, every single one was as good as the previous and they were perfectly cast to fit their persona. One always wants more from a story they love, but the closing words left me satisfied and joyful.
