I love David Mitchell's writing and I loved this book. Mitchell brings his usual mastery of the novel and applies it to the historical fiction genre. There are some weak spots in this story, namely that one of the major characters is absent from the final third of the story, but nothing dimmed my eagerness to see what new turns this story would take. There are characters, scenes, and phrases from this book that I will revisit many times.
