Journal Entry 1 by LeighBCD on Sunday, September 04, 2005

9 out of 10

This book was listed for the 2004 Man Booker Prize. I cannot remember how I came to acquire it but I do know that as soon as I heard about it, I wanted to read it.

This is the kind of thought provoking novel I love. It a series of interlinking stories through time, including a scary apocalyptic future, and it is a meditation on the meaning of life as much as a rollicking good tale. The book made me think and it stayed with me for a long while after I had read it. I really enjoyed this book.

Oddly, I am not inspired to try any of David Mitchell's other books!! Why is that? Maybe you cannot improve upon (almost) perfection.

I will release this book into the wild. I hope whoever finds this book enjoys it. When you have finished reading the book, please send it out into the wild or give it to someone else to enjoy. Don't forget to make a journal entry to let me know you found it! Thanks very much and welcome to Bookcrossing!
