The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet


THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER David Mitchell's novels have captivated critics and readers alike, as his Man Booker shortlistings and Richard & Judy Book of the Year award attest. Now he has written a masterpiece. The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet is the kind of book that comes along once in a decade - enthralling in its storytelling, imagination and scope. Set at a turning point in history on a tiny island attached to mainland Japan, David Mitchell's tale of power, passion and integrity transports us to a world that is at once exotic and familiar: an extraordinary place and an era when news from abroad took months to arrive, yet when people behaved as they always do - loving, lusting and yearning, cheating, fighting and killing. Bringing to vivid life a tectonic shift between East and West, The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet is dramatic, funny, heartbreaking, enlightening and thought-provoking. Reading it is an unforgettable experience. Hide synopsis

Another David Mitchell marvel

by Leon on Jun 16, 2011

I don't have a long time to write this critique, so I'll get the point - David Mitchell is absolutely schizoid. No one can write in so many personalities, dialects, and side plots. He is absolutely amazing and, at the end, you'll swear you read and anthology or something from several authors. If you have any doubts whatsoever, pick up a copy of "Cloud Atlas" (if you can afford it - it is EXPENSIVE, unless you get it on your Kindle) and you will be treated to a masterpiece of the richest literature. Enjoy.


a Different Time & Place

A curious peek into the Japanese character and societal values as well as a good historical fiction story that has all the elements of a 17th century Madam Butterfly.
