Summary: Anthony Doerr’s Cloud Cuckoo Land is a modern classic following Anna and Omeir in 1453 Constantinople, 17 year old Seymour, 80 something Zeno in modern time, Konstance who is 14, and a multi generation spaceship in its 65th mission year. This seemingly random cast of characters has one thing in common: the love of an ancient greek story called Cloud Cuckoo Land.
