Cloud Cuckoo Land
Cloud Cuckoo Land | Anthony Doerr
From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of 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 children trying to figure out the world around them, and to survive. In the besieged city of Constantinople in 1453, in a public library in Lakeport, Idaho, today, and on a spaceship bound for a distant exoplanet decades from now, an ancient text provides solace and the most profound human connection to characters in peril. They all learn the story of Aethon, who longs to be turned into a bird so that he can fly to the paradise of Cloud Cuckoo Land, a better world. Twelve-year-old Anna lives in a convent where women toil all day embroidering the robes of priests. She learns to read from an old Greek tutor she encounters on her errands in the city. In an abandoned priory, she finds a stash of old books. One is Aethon's story, which she reads to her sister as the walls of Constantinople are bombarded by armies of Saracens. Anna escapes, carrying only a small sack with bread, salt fish--and the book. Outside the city walls, Anna meets Omeir, a village boy who was conscripted, along with his beloved pair of oxen, to fight in the Sultan's conquest. His oxen have died; he has deserted. In Lakeport, Idaho, in 2020, Seymour, a young activist bent on saving the earth, sits in the public library with two homemade bombs in pressure cookers--another siege. Upstairs, eighty-five-year-old Zeno, a former prisoner-of-war, and an amateur translator, rehearses five children in a play adaptation of Aethon's adventures. Konstance, encased on a spaceship decades from now, has never lived on our beloved Earth. Alone in a vault with sacks of Nourish powder and access to "all the information in the world," she knows Aethon's storythrough her father. Like Marie-Laure and Werner in All the Light We Cannot See, Konstance, Anna, Omeir, Seymour, the young Zeno, the children in the library are dreamers and misfits on the cusp of adulthood in a world the grown-ups have broken. They through their own resilience and resourcefulness, and through story. Dedicated to "the librarians then, now, and in the years to come," Anthony Doerr's Cloud Cuckoo Land is about the power of story and the astonishing survival of the physical book when for thousands of years they were so rare and so feared, dying, as one character says, "in fires or floods or in the mouths of worms or at the whims of tyrants." It is a hauntingly beautiful and redemptive novel about stewardship--of the book, of the Earth, of the human heart.

You could hardly err on a book about a book, or a library, or better yet both. And if it entertains the idea that manuscripts don't burn - you have it all. Though they do burn, or drown, or get eaten by mice. But stories survive and get retold. Bulgakov's Woland has more flair with that, but Doerr's Zeno Ninis feels closer to us, mere mortals, with his humility and humanity. And with his story

Finally! I‘m not sure what is says about me that I will sit on a book for months (years) after anxiously awaiting its release but here we are. I really enjoyed all the characters and plot lines in this one. I am glad each story was told in a linear fashion otherwise it might have been confusing. 4.5 🌟 2nd book finished for #JubilantJuly and #4 of my hardback #14books14weeks list.

Characters felt believable but the atmosphere was a bit too depressing for me.

I loved the very beginning but soon this started to feel sad and threatening. And this dragged a lot. I thought that the ending would be amazing and worth going through all pages before it but this didn't deliver that.

This had two interesting storylines but two totally unnecessary ones and one that could have been edited shorter.

Cloud Cuckoo Land is an ode to the librarians—those who guard the books and share their immense, beautiful world of fact and fantasy to young people. I found hope in this novel, that the most lonely and forgotten people—an orphan in 15th century Constantinople, a plow driver broken by war, a child left alone on a spaceship—will make contributions experienced centuries later, when they dedicate their lives to protecting the stories they love most.

Such a great book. I regret listening rather than reading but have been trying to clear my TBR pile in anticipation of the Booker longlist.
Set across three different timelines, Doerr‘s novel pays homage to books and the importance of stories. It is beautifully told and highlights many issues - animal cruelty, education of women, the environment, dealing with difference. It is impossible to do it justice here but I loved it

It takes a solid 100-150 pages to feel like your following the multiple story lines. It all starts to pay off around page 500 or so when the author eloquently intertwines the stories. A beautiful piece of art

The message is simple enough - yet quite profound if you truly grasp its full potential. Your story - as it is - is important. Almost a year later, I finally finished this book. Amidst a pandemic reading slump, the monotony of daily life, and my own suffering, this book of big and small questions was important, though never easy, for me to read.

LiterRohde @CBee Thanks for the kind words. 🧡 There were long stretches during the past few years where my brain refused to read, so it‘s nice to be posting again about books I‘m actually reading. 13mo
LiterRohde @CBee A mix of everything I mentioned in my post along with the fact that it was a library book which I kept running out of time to read and therefore it had to go back - sometimes for months - all conspired against me. Hence, the ridiculously long read time. Each time I got it back it felt like starting over since each of the POVs were so connected yet spread out. I think the struggle was worth it though. As you said, much to think about. 🤔 (edited) 13mo

This book was perhaps the most imaginative and best written book I‘ve ever read. The author Anthony Doerr wrote this as a “paean” for books- basically in praise of books. This book follows characters in 3 points in history- thousands of years apart- in Ancient Greece, present day Idaho and in the far future aboard a spaceship, all reading the same book “cloud cuckoo land”. Brilliant

SamAnne One of my best reads in awhile. 13mo

This did not work for me. It felt over-explained (eg the first scene in a spaceship at pains to tell us it‘s in the future) & preaching the message that books are good & can be life-changing. Action slowly unfolds in nicely written scenes with no dramatic tension. Favours written books over oral story-telling traditions. Ending felt contrived. Too earnest for my taste. Many have loved it so don‘t let me put you off. 😉

A breathtaking, heartbreaking, timescaping adventure, and yet, not, because most of the characters' real journeying leading to growth is internal, is a recognition of the immutability of their paths and at the same time, the value of them as such. Escapism vs acceptance.
As much about the emotional connection each person made to a certain recurring text, as the contents of the book itself. 1/?

Robotswithpersonality The crucial roles of preservation and translation, of libraries and librarians, in making works through the ages accessible, always going to love books with such themes.
Love of nature running through, also a beloved theme.
Captivating writing but not too flowery
Key to long books: short chapters. 2/?
1y
Robotswithpersonality So so, many ways for war, conflict, conquest to be destructive

I could guess that others might object to the rep involved in Seymour's character, but I think it's important to recognize the portrayal has more to do with nurture than nature. He's not a naturally/brain-chemically bad seed, but someone who didn't have many sources of solace, who was neglected, or at the very least not provided with the kind of resources that would allow him to thrive, and then misguided, manipulated, and that could happen to any kid. 3/?
1y
Robotswithpersonality Historically I'm sure it's just thought of as overworking work animals, but the sensitivity shown in the portrayal of a boy's relationship to the oxen in his care, and modern sensibilities and ethics mean that I want to add a warning for animal abuse - fellow vegans, you're gonna cry.
1y
Robotswithpersonality Touches on unethical company practices around data manipulation, connected to slave (below legal minimum wage) labor in prisons.
Also likely to spike your climate anxiety.

⚠️ Homophobia, internalized homophobia, POW experience, PTSD?, ableism, internalized ableism (how boy with facial abnormality was treated in medieval times)

SamAnne My best read by far in 2023. While I was reading this an unscrupulous developer logged the hillside above my house. Acres that I came very close to raising the money to add to the adjacent city park. I felt for Seymour. 1y

Yep, this is a good one. Much as I expected from the author of All the Light We Cannot See, Doerr brilliantly weaves together storylines stretching over vast distances of space, time, and understanding. I alternated between audio and print on this one, which helped with some of the Greek and gave me a chance to hear Marin Ireland again, someone who's fast becoming a favorite audiobook narrator for me.

Five star read for me. I loved how Doerr wrapped all the story lines together perfectly. Loved the themes of choosing life on earth over “in the clouds” despite the grief and hardship that comes with love and beauty. I loved how the novel reflected the power of words and story and how they have helped people over millennia weather life and make sense of it. The power of handing stories down and the value of libraries! ⬇️

SamAnne Seymour‘s storyline hit me in the gut on many levels. While reading this I watched bulldozers and chainsaws take down acres of forest above my house, forest that I came close to protecting as parkland, but didnt pull it off. The natural area is what has helped me weather all the challenges of living in a low-income neighborhood. A bit broken-hearted. I‘ve lost a few TrustyFriends this month too. 1y

I wanted to love this but I struggled with the disconnect between storylines for most of the book. Zeno's story was the only one I felt truly invested in throughout. I will say I loved how the pieces came together but still felt like I needed more from the ending and the characters' destinies. Overall, I'd still recommend.

This is a speculative fiction book that takes time to read. Multiple views with multiple timelines. A book within a book. None of this was my cup of tea. I can, however, appreciate the talent of the author weaving this all together. 3 🌟 I almost did not finish, but i got wrapped up in 1 or 2 of the storylines, but they ended vaguely. I still say it's a pick, though.

3 stars: meh, but still worth reading.
I have been so excited about this book for so long, but ultimately, it was a disappointment. The story follows 5 characters, and there were only 2 I was truly interested in fully. The ending is not well explained (it appears the author did not himself know what happened) and the book that the book centers on is not as all-encompassing and epic as I would have hoped.

I almost DNFed this, but it grew on me. It became a so-so for a while, as it was incredibly strange & it took way too long to connect all of the characters. However, I ended up caring about each character so much that I wanted to know what happened in their individual stories only to be more & more delighted by the end. Ultimately, it‘s a scholarly, fantastical, beautiful ode to stories & how they connect us all. The narrators were fantastic too.
