Cloud Cuckoo Land by Anthony Doerr 622 pages

Pulitzer Prize winning author Anthony Doerr has written a tome which covers eight centuries with five main characters in numerous settings. An ancient book figures in each of the character’s lives.

Cloud Cuckoo Land is a fine novel if you are willing to read about 300 pages before you get a feel for the characters and the direction the plot is moving towards. I couldn’t get into it until the final 150 pages. If you greatly admired All the Light We Cannot See, I think you might be disappointed in Doerr’s latest work.
