The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet

The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet - David Mitchell I loved this book. Completely different in structure to Cloud Atlas, but beautifully observed, fascinating detail, particularly about a period in history I didn't know much about. Although the story at the heart of the book is horrific, the characters are so engaging and the situation so complex that it is difficult to put the book down. Another great book.
