Críticas:

Named one of the 10 Best Books Set in Berlin by "The Guardian" (UK)
"Beautifully evocative." --Malcolm Burgess, "The Guardian"
"A hypnotic first novel . . . ["Book of Clouds"] has the power of dreams and still hasn't left me."--Junot Diaz, Salon.com (Best Books of 2009, Authors' Picks)
"First novels by young writers who see the world with a fresh, original vision and write about it with clarity and restraint are rare enough to begin with. When you add in the fact that Chloe Aridjis's "Book of Clouds" is also a stunningly accurate portrait of Berlin, as well as a thoughtful portrayal of a young Mexican Jew drifting through her life abroad, this novel becomes required reading of the most pleasurable sort. . . . A book that has so much to recommend it, not least its ability to convey both actual and distorted realities at once."--Wendy Lesser, "The New York Times Book Review "
"Spiked with a dreamlike urban surrealism. . . . Tatiana is deeply inhabited by her author, who moves calmly from one precinct to another in Tatiana's unusual mind. . . . Magic and poetry are everywhere in "Book of Clouds" . . . An unsettling atmosphere unlike anything in recent fiction."--Regina Marler, "Los Angeles Times"
"Once in a while a book comes along and does what it's meant to do. It carves out a space for itself in the memory and it settles there, changing the way we see the world. . . . Like Gogol, Chloe Aridjis is interested in caricatures of urbanity, the space between comedy and metaphysical horror, and the confrontation between character and our own atavistic fears. Quiet, brave, and utterly unique, ["Book of Clouds"] will disturb, satiate, and change the way you think."--"The Times "(UK)
"A stirring and lyrical first novel by a young writer of immense talent."--Paul Auster
"Exquisitely written, "Book of Clouds" is a perfect Berlin story for our unsettled times, and a remarkable debut."--Francisco Goldman
"[An] exceptional debutf

Reseña del editor:

Book of Clouds is a haunting, masterfully wrought debut novel about a young woman adrift in Berlin, where a string of fateful encounters leads to romance, violence, and revelation. Having escaped her overbearing family a continent away, Tatiana settles in Berlin and cultivates solitude while distancing herself from the city's past. Yet the phantoms of Berlin--seeping in through the floorboards of her apartment, lingering in the abandoned subterranea--are more alive to her than the people she passes on her daily walks. When she takes a job transcribing notes for the reclusive historian Doktor Weiss, her life in Berlin becomes more complex--and more perilous. Through Weiss, she meets Jonas, a meteorologist who, as a child in the GDR, took solace in the sky's constant shape-shifting, an antidote to his grim and unyielding reality. As their three paths intersect and merge, the contours of all their worlds begin to change, culminating in an act of violence that will leave none of them untouched. Unfolding with the strange, charged logic of a dream, Book of Clouds is a profound portrait of a city forever in flux, and of the myths we cling to in order to give shape to our lives. From a crowded U-Bahn where Hitler appears dressed as an old woman, to an underground Gestapo bowling alley whose walls bear score marks from games long settled, Chloe Aridjis guides us through Berlin with wit and compassion, blurring the lines between real and imagined, and showing why cities, like people, cannot outrun their pasts.
