A Book a Week – The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet

The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet was another book club pick. I’ve read David Mitchell before and I loved him so I was open minded and happy to read this book.

And even though it’s considerably different from his usual style, this was a great book. I’ll admit that I listened to it and did art at the same time and if I’d just read it, it might have felt a bit dry in places.

But the story and the characters were marvelous. Even though I found it to be a bit sad, it wasn’t over the top and it was truly a marvelous read.

If you like historical fiction, I recommend it.
