Cloud Atlas

Did anyone out there ever read the book Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell? I loved it. I want to read it again. I want to write down each wonderful turn of phrase. 
"I watched clouds awobbly from the floor o' that kayak. Souls cross ages like clouds cross skies, an' tho' a cloud's shape nor hue nor size don't stay the same, it's still a cloud an' so is a soul. Who can say where the cloud's blowed from or who the soul'll be 'morrow? Only Sonmi the east an' the west an' the compass an' the atlas, yay, only the atlas o' clouds."

i haven't read it, but i like the quotation. and who is to say there isn't a soul (or many souls) in a cloud?
