Supremely imaginative. Mitchell weaves adventure tales, historical fiction, science fiction, and more into something grand. It reminded my of everything I love about fiction.

Why did I wait so long? I’ve read David Mitchell’s writing and loved it so have had this award-winning book on my own library shelf four years. I even started it once. It is six stories loosely bound over many years in the past and into the future. I think the future—not enjoying science fiction—may have turned me away. Then, I heard it would be a movie. Then, I saw the first movie trailer, pulled the book off the shelf and couldn’t stop reading. Wow.
