Cloud Atlas

We’re ecstatic about today’s guest post from best friend of The Wise Guise, Josh Smith, who previously wrote this joy of a blog post. If we had it our way, Josh would write a new post every day, but he’s a legitimate family man, so alas, no can do. However, we couldn’t be happier to have his book review and movie preview of Cloud Atlas today.  Mainly because we wanted to have a clue what was going on in the movie when we saw it and Josh read the book for us. But this post is filled with wit, insight, and a litany of intelligent cultural references. Hope y’all enjoy it as much as we do!

Josh has now seen the movie, as well. After reading this post, check out his Movie Review of Cloud Atlas.
