    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!

    Interesting read

    I enjoyed reading the historical information. The novel was written in quite a poetic way with some different styles - two events being alternated. There were Lao some beautiful descriptions.
