Cloud Atlas 06 - The Ghastly Ordeal of Timothy Cavendish
One part of me really liked this one, but I think I was influenced by having already seen the movie - I really felt the actors got into their parts. And I liked the ridiculous crime at the beginning as the motor for what happens to poor old Tim. But as I look back on it, this has become the most throw-away story even though I liked it. I think part of what changed my view was the lack of development of Tim as the story went along - he was already formed, and didn't change much. Maybe there's something deeper in there, but finally it seemed light compared to the other stories. Even though I didn't like the Pacific Journal, I found it had more meat.
