    One thought on “The Cloud Messenger”

    1. Read the Italian translation. I'm usually very interested in stories of migration but this book was just not engaging enough. I've often thought about identity in a mixed family, as this is my case too, but despite the closeness to the topic, everything was so distant, every character.

    2. It bothers me when authors lace a text with metaphorical language that doesn't shed light on the story or characters themselves. Guess what the motif in "The Cloud Messenger" is? You guessed it: clouds. Honestly, clouds are about as difficult a metaphor to pull off as shadows or footprints: so easy they risk being only cliche'. What makes me curious, still, is the author's note at the end: these are scenes from a life he could have led -- paths he could have taken. That's interesting! And perhap [...]

    3. I received this book through the First Reads program, so I was pretty excited for my first free book to review! I expected this book to be like The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahiri, which I enjoyed. However, I found it confusing and without enough details for me to get interested in the storyline. The book follows the life of one man, from childhood through adulthood, but only certain excerpts of each year are given. I found myself getting confused with the geography mentioned in the story, first of a [...]

    4. Overall, the “Cloud Messenger” is abysmal and mundane. It reminds me of the much-acclaimed movie “The History of Violence” that was released a few years ago. You continue to watch (or read, in this case) because you are confident that something is going to happen because there surely can’t be a storyline that is that dull. But of course, once you reach the end, you are mad at yourself for even making it that far – since nothing has happened of importance. Perhaps if you are intrigued [...]

    5. I received this book as a giveaway through . It was hard to get into this book at first but the author has such a poetic way of writing that I pushed through to the end. It's a nice story that reads like a drifters memoirs. Though well educated the main character travels around and lives a bohemian lifestyle which made it interesting but again it was the writing style that got me through and made it worth reading.

    6. The writing is at times beautiful. But the general feel of the book is depressing and has a disjointed effect. While a chronological scheme is there, it lacks some overarching drive or momentum (and needs some more complete resolution). I just finished the book and I feel like I'm dangling and somewhat unsatisfied.

    7. I was confused about the story or message the book was trying desperately to convey.Whats in it to be called “the cloud messenger“? A series of connecting random things to rain doesnt really mean it is relating to title.Not my kind of book.

    8. I never knew that words can intoxicate you. But this book does it and does it in style. The bittersweet memories of the lost world, lost dreams and missed opportunities. the loneliness of a man and the unquenchable thirst for something undefined and yet, contentment.

    9. Hard to relate to if you don't know much about Arabian poetry or literature which is the most common topic iirc.

    10. A beautiful book, full of longing and sadness. Haunting and the writing is beautiful and poignant.

    11. I really had high hopes for this book but it wasrandom. Sort of like reading the rantings of an Alzheimer's patient with a poetic bend.

    12. I didn't like Mehran, the main character, so although there were some good bits (mainly the early part about his childhood) the book didn't really work for me.
