2. Cloud Cuckoo Land by Anthony Doerr

A marvellous paean to the power of literature and how it connects readers through time and across space. An ancient Greek text, gradually revealed as the novel progresses, links numerous central characters from the past, present and future, whose tales are also told. I really did find this hard to put down.

This one might be up your street, Evolving.

I suppose the ancient Greek text is The Birds?


It's an imagined work, but owes a debt to The Birds, yes.
