OVERVIEW

REVIEWS
An impeccable dance of genres . . . an elegiac, radiant festival of prescience, meditation and entertainment - The Times Just about the most audacious, thrilling and, above all, entertaining young British novelist there is - Observer His wildest ride yet . . . a singular achievement, from an author of extraordinary ambition and skill - Independent on Sunday One of the most shamelessly exciting books imaginable - Spectator David Mitchell entices his readers onto a rollercoaster, and at first they wonder if they want to get off. Then - at least in my case - they can't bear the journey to end. - Guardian A novel of breath-taking ambition and scale, spanning continents, oceans and centuries - Christina Patterson The novel's scale, ambition and execution make almost everything in this contemporary fiction look like a squalid struggle of Nissen huts . . . it is nothing short of a miracle of correspondences, of thematic and stylistic assonances, echoes and reverberations, every bit as intricate and rewarding as a complex fugue - The Times Gloriously inventive and dazzlingly virtuosic - Independent on Sunday
