The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet

6 07 2014

Took me nearly nine weeks to get through this one. The first third was the biggest challenge as not a whole lot happens and the language takes a lot of getting used to. Mitchell is certainly an interesting writer, and clearly language and research are more important to him than story or characters. Still, I did enjoy the last two thirds, and I’m glad to have read this one. I do prefer Cloud Atlas though.

Can you tell I endured a strenuous bootcamp class yesterday?
