The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet: A Novel by David Mitchell
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is the kind of book I want to race through to see how it ends, but the language is so beautiful, the observations so acute, the texture so deep, that restraint is required. And, the book doesn't just end...there are endings, and twists, and turnings, all the way through. A brilliant writer, interesting topic.
