Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell
Straight in at number 2 !
Time: 11 mins 46 secs
Return with me now to the thrilling day of Tuesday ...
Low tech today after last weeks filming. Cloud Atlas is a brick. I wonder if size matters? (Books that is.)
I drop the book off and retreat to a nearby wall.
Straight away a man walks up and pokes the book with the tip of his umbrella. Does he mistake it for a rattler? He flips back the cover with the umbrella then strides off like Dick Van Dyke.
11mins 46 seconds later ...
A woman walks up. She looks around and picks up the book. She is well equipped for the job: a black bag swings at her side. Swag must be written in black. I like black. She stands looking around, then flips through the book. Another look to check the coast is clear and she's off, David Mitchell tucked under her arm.
