The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell
Random House, 2010
I'm stocking up on good books to take on holiday next month - I ordered this one a while ago from my local-best-bookstore-in-the-universe, Skylight Books, and it arrived yesterday. Huzzahs. I know, I know - I could have ordered on it on amazon and saved money but I lUfF Skylight Books. I like this fella, David Mitchell. One of his other books, "Cloud Atlas" is in my top ten all-time-all-stars. I am much looking forward to reading it.
I am a bit perturbed that the Hollywood people have deemed it necessary to make "On The Road" into a film. This book is also in my top ten. I don't understand why it needs to be a film. Why can't they leave it be. It's supposed to be a book. Not a film. Am I behaving like an old grump? Poss.
