  • The Thousand Autumns of Jacob deZoet

    I had 3 goes at starting this book. I was very engaging at first then slowed down and lost its way. Am really pleased I persisted. A very interesting tale, and great history lesson.

  • Hidden secrets in feudal Japan

    At first I was a little disappointed by this book, as it felt like a very straightforward Shogun-like adventure set in feudal Japan. But after a few months I went back and read it again, and this time found much more depth in it and enjoyed it much more. I’m now going to read this again as I’ve since read the author’s latest, “The Bone Clocks”, which reveals new secrets about the story of Jacob de Zoet!

  • The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoe

    A fascinating insight into Japan in the late 19th century when trade with Europe began. David Mitchell as always delivers brilliantly observed characters with dialogue so well written one would think it real. The descriptions and historical information are enlightening and enveloping. Japan is entrancing in its magical mysterious hidden life. Another brilliant story from a master of the art, I was sad to finish but know it will linger for a long time
