On the New York Times bestseller list for 19 weeks * A New York Times Notable Book * A Barack Obama Favorite * A National Book Award Finalist * Named a Best of the Year by Fresh Air, Time, Entertainment Weekly, Associated Press, and many more--one of the ten books that appeared on the most lists for 2021 "If you're looking for a superb novel, look no further." --The Washington Post From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of All the Light We Cannot See, comes the instant New York Times bestseller that is a "wildly inventive, a humane and uplifting book for adults that's infused with the magic of childhood reading experiences" (The New York Times Book Review). Among the most celebrated and beloved novels of 2021, Anthony Doerr's gorgeous third novel is a triumph of imagination and compassion, a soaring story about children on the cusp of adulthood in worlds in peril, who find resilience, hope--and a book. In Cloud Cuckoo Land, Doerr has created a magnificent tapestry of times and places that reflects our vast interconnectedness--with other species, with each other, with those who lived before us, and with those who will be here after we're gone. Thirteen-year-old Anna, an orphan, lives inside the formidable walls of Constantinople in a house of women who make their living embroidering the robes of priests. Restless, insatiably curious, Anna learns to read, and in this ancient city, famous for its libraries, she finds a book, the story of Aethon, who longs to be turned into a bird so that he can fly to a utopian paradise in the sky. This she reads to her ailing sister as the walls of the only place she has known are bombarded in the great siege of Constantinople. Outside the walls is Omeir, a village boy, miles from home, conscripted with his beloved oxen into the invading army. His path and Anna's will cross. Five hundred years later, in a library in Idaho, octogenarian Zeno, who learned Greek as a prisoner of war, rehearses five children in a play adaptation of Aethon's story, preserved against all odds through centuries. Tucked among the library shelves is a bomb, planted by a troubled, idealistic teenager, Seymour. This is another siege. And in a not-so-distant future, on the interstellar ship Argos, Konstance is alone in a vault, copying on scraps of sacking the story of Aethon, told to her by her father. She has never set foot on our planet. Like Marie-Laure and Werner in All the Light We Cannot See, Anna, Omeir, Seymour, Zeno, and Konstance are dreamers and outsiders who find resourcefulness and hope in the midst of gravest danger. Their lives are gloriously intertwined, and Doerr's dazzling imagination transports us to worlds so dramatic and immersive that we forget, for a time, our own. Dedicated to "the librarians then, now, and in the years to come," Cloud Cuckoo Land is a beautiful and redemptive novel about stewardship--of the book, of the Earth, of the human heart.

Summary of Cloud Cuckoo Land - A Comprehensive Summary Cloud Cuckoo Land is about a book and how it manages to survive across time. It follows four sets of characters in different time frames that all come across an (fictional) ancient Greek tale called Cloud Cuckoo Land by Antonius Diogenes. Throughout the narrative, the contents of Cloud Cuckoo Land are interwoven in bits and pieces. It consists of 24 parts, is illegible in some sections and scholars have debated the order of the parts. The author claims he found the tale scribed onto pieces of wood in an ancient tomb. It tells story of Aethon, a man who goes looking for a "utopian city in the sky" called Cloud Cuckoo Land. Along the way, he has many adventures (transformed into a donkey, captured, escapes, transformed into a fish, eaten by a sea creature, transformed into a crow, etc.) before he finally finds Cloud Cuckoo Land.

From his home in a West Yorkshire village proverbially associated with cuckoos, Simon Armitage has been probing the night sky with the aid of a powerful Russian telescope. The sequence of eighty-eight poems at the heart of CloudCuckooLand springs from this preoccupation, each poem receiving its title from one of the constellations, while turning out to be less concerned with pure astronomy than with moments in the life of the poet's mind.

Seleccionado como uno de los mejores libros de ficción del 2021 por Publishers Weekly Finalista del National Book Awards 2021 Uno de los libros favoritos de Obama en el 2021 El esperado regreso del autor de La luz que no puedes ver con una ambiciosa novela llena de imaginación y emoción sobre el poder de la palabra escrita. Los jóvenes héroes de esta novela intentan entender el mundo que les rodea: Anna y Omeir se encuentran en lados opuestos de las magníficas murallas de Constantinopla durante el asedio de la ciudad en 1453; el idealista Seymour está inmerso en un atentado contra una biblioteca en el Idaho de la actualidad; y Konstance viaja a bordo de una nave espacial que se dirige a un nuevo planeta en el futuro. Todos ellos son soñadores que encuentran fuerza y esperanza en la adversidad... y todos están unidos por un libro escrito en la antigua Grecia que narra un viaje excepcional ENGLISH DESCRIPTION Publishers Weekly Best Book 2021 Fiction Longlisted 2021 National Book Awards ONE OF BARACK OBAMA'S FAVORITE BOOKS OF 2021 From the Pulitzer Prize–winning author of All the Light We Cannot See, perhaps the most bestselling and beloved literary fiction of our time, comes a triumph of imagination and compassion, a soaring novel about children on the cusp of adulthood in a broken world, who find resilience, hope, and story. The heroes of Cloud Cuckoo Land are trying to figure out the world around them: Anna and Omeir, on opposite sides of the formidable city walls during the 1453 siege of Constantinople; teenage idealist Seymour in an attack on a public library in present day Idaho; and Konstance, on an interstellar ship bound for an exoplanet, decades from now. Like Marie-Laure and Werner in All the Light We Cannot See, Anna, Omeir, Seymour, and Konstance are dreamers and outsiders who find resourcefulness and hope in the midst of peril. An ancient text—the story of Aethon, who longs to be turned into a bird so that he can fly to a utopian paradise in the sky—provides solace and mystery to these unforgettable characters. Doerr has created a tapestry of times and places that reflects our vast interconnectedness—with other species, with each other, with those who lived before us and those who will be here after we’re gone. Dedicated to “the librarians then, now, and in the years to come,” Cloud Cuckoo Land is a hauntingly beautiful and redemptive novel about stewardship—of the book, of the Earth, of the human heart.

Things he sees can be the plot for a sci-fi thriller and he is willing to create a deep reading experience. After narrowly escaping enchantment in a devastating world that incommode men, Mr. Wyi Worri-the inventor of this Frankenstein monster-learns from his friends, that his wild brainchild was neither an accident nor an isolated case. As part of atavistic mystery designed to mask a far more savage secret, love and trust are bitter pills you have to swallow without water. Their value entombed with British Queen Victoria of lost ages. Having scenario of another venture to dread, every angle he takes these love and trust is a fat suspicion. Cloud-Cuckoo-Land is one distinctive book that appreciates the power of the human mind.
