i received a copy of cloud cuckoo land from harper collins nz in exchange for an honest review.
cloud cuckoo land review
cloud cuckoo land is about 6 individuals (from 3 different times) who all have something that connects them: the long lost book of cloud cuckoo land.
although this book seems relatively plotless, it’s very character driven. i liked the mystery regarding the lost book. and i really enjoyed how the author sprinkled its passages throughout so we weren’t left completely in the dark.
the characters themselves were interesting, and i loved learning about them. i enjoyed our “villain” a lot more than expected. i found his story the most interesting. although, i disliked how he was the only mentally challenged (autistic) and a bad guy.
overall, despite the large size of this book, it was a quick, entertaining read. it’s the perfect book for those who like multiple seemingly unrelated stories which are in fact related. and for those who prefer character driven plots.
along with this book, harper collins also provided a free tea sample from tea total nz. the flavour paired with cloud cuckoo land was sweet cinnamon. i haven’t tried many flavoured black teas before, but i really enjoyed the flavour of this one.
