Recommended Posts

I'm watching the episodes again and picked up on another reference: Cloud Atlas by David Mitchell (in the spring episode).

Ooh, thanks Frankie! I didn't pick up on all of these as the show aired, but I'm glad someone was paying closer attention. I'd say around half of these books were referenced in the original series. And according to the spreadsheet I keep, Huck Finn has been referenced more times than any other book. :)

 

 

Yep, most of them are 're-mentions' :) I was hoping for more new titles, modern ones! :)

Oh yeah, Cloud Atlas was actually the one that I noticed myself! It was in reference to the Shropshire book, right? :)
