Read in December, 2011

I was dazzled by Cloud Atlas. The brilliance, cleverness and great heart of that book in no way prepared me for The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet. No narrative games here A magnificent epic story with all the heart of Cloud Atlas, but with a profound and quiet wisdom. The overarching melancholy is so subtly woven throughout this book, that when the threads come together at the serenely beautiful end, you are overwhelmed.

I must read everything by David Mitchell!
