it was amazing
Recommended to Cailin by: Neil White
Read in October, 2011

Such a refreshing story. David Mitchell’s range in voice is astounding, I mean, Cloud Atlas is staggering, genius, but ‘Black Swan Green’ is just so damn lovely. It’s endearing (“A brick of loneliness is reaching terminal velocity inside me.”) hilarious (“My life may be a swamp of shit but at least I’m not in Jason Taylor’s shoes.”), profound (if I quote anything, it would ruin it. Just take my word for it.). Towards the end I found myself wishing it was a the book of fornever-ending treadmills that I could read myself to sleep to for ever and ever.

Too much?

“A cow of an awkward pause mooed”
