After reading Black Swan Green, I read The Bone Clocks by: David Mitchell. I really liked this book except the end of it. I would have written a little bit differently. I would have written it where she also gets rescued even though she was sick.
This is a little hard to explain, but I’m going to try. Before I do, I should say this is book does have mentions of The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, and Black Swan Green so you should read those first before reading this one. Like Stephen King, David Mitchell made this book his writing universe. That’s why I love it so much.
Like Cloud Atlas, The Bone Clocks goes forward in time. The Bone Clocks starts in 1984 and ends in the year 2043. The book is mainly about a girl named Holly Sykes. She’s 15 years old and she has a younger brother. Her younger brother suddenly starts acting weird. Weird by acting more adult in some ways. She doesn’t think anything about it until he goes missing. Later on Holly discovers of why he was acting weird and and why he went missing. When she was little, she saw what she thought was a ghost who wanted to be her friend. But it was not ghost, and the woman was a bad person. She was the one who kidnapped Holly’s brother. The woman was part of a group of people who are horologists. (Horology is the study of time.) They are basically time travelers. The Anchorites are the good horologists.The bad horologists are followed by a guy who wants the souls of psychic kids like Holly and her brother so he could live again and to be immortal.
Holly and a man named Marius (from the book of The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet) take down the bad horologists.
