Cloud Atlas 05 - Half-Lives: The First Luisa Rey Mystery
I found this story quite different from the others. There were quite a few things: a female protagonist, a different narrative voice, multiple narrators, or perhaps a narrator who could read minds ... I enjoyed the suspense of following the efforts to reveal the cover-up, and found the character's motivations were more believable than the first two stories. In general I found the character's motivations easier to understand as the book went forward. Anyone else find this?
In terms of gaming, due to the narrative voice I found it easier to imagine how PCs would make these decisions. Sloosha's Crossin' An' EV'Rythin' After was similar. The other stories were more intimate, and so seemed to me less playable for a group.
