's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: author-british, fiction

** spoiler alert ** It's beautifully written and if it was a map, a treasure map, to my eyes it would have so many X letters in it. Though I've been avoiding spoilers from the movie and reviews, I knew there was going to be multiple characters with different stories from different period of time. And I think (Sir) David Mitchell has taken it as an opportunity to show his mastership of a true wordsmith through his characters, plots, and the weave and thread that make it as one whole story.
