I love books, more specifically, I love stories built up by a collection of words. The more beautiful, the better. When there is that synergy of language and story-telling that comes from the heart along side characters that linger long after the book has been closed, the reader experiences that sense of contentment that only beautiful books can give. Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell is such a book. The novel explores the ever-recurring philosophical facet of the human condition; goodness versus evil.
