Book failures and successes

I really enjoyed Salem Falls by Jodi Picoult. Then I tackled Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell and I have given up. Exciting? As exciting as porridge. Best read of the year (Richard & Judy). What? The narrative is confusing, the style irritating and the story, er what story? I just can't see where it's going. I am however loving Thunder and Lightnings by Jan Mark, also lent me by huskyteer, which I think is very much influenced by the writings of William Mayne.
