As a child, Holly heard things no one else could. She had visitors no one else saw. Fearing for her sanity, her mother brought her to a psychologist who was able to help her. And in doing so set her life into a spiral that would forever after wind around the actions of a group of re-incarnated individuals who had set themselves in opposition to the soul-vampires who had been attacking her.

In The Bone Clocks, David Mitchell blends the paranormal and the every day with a subtlety and skill that make the book a pleasure to read. Throughout the book, Mitchell creates and leaves and weaves back in a series of seemingly disparate plot lines that all end in a single, graceful exit. His prose is lovely, and his storytelling kept me hook through to the end.
