From Constantinople to Idaho to an interstellar spaceship, Cloud Cuckoo Land by Anthony Doerr traverses time and space. In many ways, this book reminds me of David Mitchell's works - a cast of characters across time and place but with the same themes recurring throughout and a circular approach leaving a cohesive singular message. For the survival of children, for the survival of books, for a lover letter to the power of stories and those who protect them, this will remain a memorable book for me.
