    Imaginative Short Story

    Not in the same league as Mitchell's Thousand Autumns but an original piece of short story writing. Lucky my phone-cum-ereader has a nifty dictionary as I don't know my "orison" from my "quotidian".

    Selfish souls

    Written with all of Mitchell's usual but unique style, this tale of soul sucking Time avoiders plays with the mind in the most creative way. Autism, bad drug trips and everyday psychosis fuel a story line with the essence of reality. Quite an achievement, but to be expected from a writer of Mitchell's calibre.

    Over all too soon

    This was the second David Mitchell book that I'd read, having finished the Boneclocks just a few weeks ago. Whilst references to some of the Boneclocks concepts do emerge, the storyline is not dependant on them and stands alone. The sinister confined description of the approach to Slade House draws you in time after time as the story crosses the decades. I was gripped with a sense of foreboding as each guest meets their hosts, you will be too. Enjoy.

    Todo por la pasta

    Aprovechando el tiron de Relojes de hueso David Mitchell saca este bodriolo descafeinado. Cada parte cuenta la historia de un personaje, cada uno mas insustancial que el anterior. Todo va cogido con alfileres en la trama y hacia el final se pasa con la chachara pseudomistica. Algunas cosas me recordaron a Los vampiros e la mente.
