5.0 out of 5 stars Sometimes, going up requires going through.
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on December 12, 2022
"This novel moved me deeply. Beyond what other reviewers noted about how it explores a frightening possible future, I was struck by the deep spiritual subtext that runs through The Cloud. By taking to their logical conclusions many malevolent present-day technological and political trends, this novel underscores how the effort to dehumanize humanity must inevitably fail. The male protagonist, Blaise, attains a capacity for transcendence he couldn't have achieved without the horrifying adversity he's forced to confront. The novel ends on a note of hard-won hope—hope that perhaps, despite all the contrary trends so brilliantly dramatized in this work, the human spirit can still win against the forces of darkness. Definitely Five Stars."
