just read it
Rating: 5 stars (out of 5)
Genre: fantasy, science fiction
Review: There's no good way to summarize this book at all, let alone do it without giving away the whole thing. So without mentioning the plot, what I can say is this: if you liked Cloud Atlas, definitely read this book. If you didn't like Cloud Atlas, read this book anyway, because although it too is a genre-bending book, it's really very different. Ditto for The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet (both are among my favorite books, by the way). What it boils down to is the David Mitchell is one of the most talented writers around and anyone who wants to read a book that will be a lot of fun, but also be challenging, should read his books.
