Das neue Buch von David Mitchell, dem Autor des von den Wachowski-Geschwistern verfilmten, genre- und zeitenübergreifenden Romans "Wolkenatlas": ein Schauerroman par excellence. Geh die Slade Alley hinunter - schmal, feucht und leicht zu verfehlen, selbst wenn du sie suchst. Finde das kleine schwarze Eisentor in der Mauer zur Rechten. Keine Klinke, kein Schlüsselloch, aber wenn du es berührst, schwingt es auf. Tritt in den sonnendurchfluteten Garten eines alten Hauses, das dort unpassend wirkt: zu nobel für die schäbige Nachbarschaft, irgendwie zu groß für das Grundstück. Ein Fremder begrüßt dich und führt dich hinein. Zunächst möchtest du gar nicht mehr fort. Dann merkst du, dass du es nicht mehr kannst. Denn alle neun Jahre, a...

Slade House Book Description :

A headlong adrenaline-rush of a new novel from one of our most beloved and original writers: Slade House, which has its origins in Mitchell's famously Twitter-released short story last year, is his most entertaining and accessible novel yet. A cycle of linked ghost stories perfect for any dark and stormy night. An ordinary road in a town like yours: bus routes and red-brick houses. A dank narrow alley, easy to miss, even when you're looking for it. A small black metal door set into the wall: no handle, no keyhole, but at your touch it opens onto a sunlit garden, sloping up to a house that doesn't quite make sense... Go through, and the door closes discreetly behind you. In David Mitchell's exhilarating new novel, five "guests" separated by nine years...

Slade House Book Description :

**Pre-order UTOPIA AVENUE, the spectacular new novel from David Mitchell.** Turn down Slade Alley - narrow, dank and easy to miss, even when you're looking for it. Find the small black iron door set into the right-hand wall. No handle, no keyhole, but at your touch it swings open. Enter the sunlit garden of an old house that doesn't quite make sense; too grand for the shabby neighbourhood, too large for the space it occupies. A stranger greets you and invites you inside. At first, you won't want to leave. Later, you'll find that you can't. This unnerving, taut and intricately woven tale by one of our most original and bewitching writers begins in 1979 and comes to its turbulent conclusion around Hallowe'en, 2015. Because every nine years, on the last...

The Bone Clocks Book Description :

“The novelist who’s been showing us the future of fiction” (The Washington Post), David Mitchell delivers a kaleidoscopic, serpentine masterpiece that navigates between characters, eras, and realms of possibility to weave its astonishing spell. An eloquent conjurer of intricate, interconnected tales, a genre-bending daredevil, and a master prose stylist—David Mitchell has outdone himself. The Bone Clocks is a hypnotic Rubik’s cube of a novel that begs to be taken apart and put back together long after the final piece is fit into place. Following a scalding row with her mother, fifteen year-old Holly Sykes slams the door on her old life. But Holly is no typical teenage runaway: a sensitive child once contacted by voices she knew only as “t...
