Journal Entry 1 by Wichtelkoenigin from Köln, Nordrhein-Westfalen Germany on Sunday, July 03, 2016

10 out of 10

This book was given to me by a friend some months ago. I've just started reading it and I like it very much so far.

It plays in Japan at the end of the 18th century. The author, David Mitchell, was born on in Southport, Merseyside, UK, on 12th January 1969.

Edit: Just finished the book. It's an adventure story that does allow you to travel both in time and space.
Seafarers, merchants, the East-India Company, a secluded, "oriental" and mysterious country, and even a love story, all masterly written. I'm glad I got to read this book!
