Cloud Cuckoo Land

A beautifully written story that spans centuries - from 1453 to 120 years in the future, by the author of the bestselling book, All The Light We Cannot See. It's inspiring and very emotional, and the characters are so believable you will fall in love with them.

Praise For This Book

"Sweeping and atmospheric." -Time

"A magical (and hopeful) tale of humanity." -People

"As intimate as a bedtime story, a love letter to libraries and bibliophiles." -O Magazine

"A dazzling epic of love, war, and the joy of books." -The Guardian

"A novel of epic stature and ambition." -Buzzfeed

"[An] intricately braided story ... [and] a stunning, mind-bending tale of survival and how closely we're all connected." -Good Housekeeping

"Doerr works literary magic to tell three cleverly entwined stories set centuries apart, celebrating children, and the natural world, and always, especially, libraries. We'll be talking about this one for a long time." -St. Louis Post-Dispatch

"Packed with lush details and a gripping narrative." -Keziah Weir, Vanity Fair

"A trip well worth taking with the inimitable Doerr." -Rob Merrill, Associated Press

"Of all our contemporary fiction writers, Anthony Doerr is the one whose novels seem to be the purest response to the primal request: tell me a story... [Cloud Cuckoo Land] transports us far above the stars, and down into the mud. It dazzles, and disturbs. And I for one wanted Doerr's vast and overwhelming story to last much, much longer." -Maureen Corrigan, Fresh Air
