Bookclub No. 29 David Mitchell “Black Swan Green”

My superficial prejudice against Cloud Atlas (never read it, just saw the trailer), prevented me from picking up any book by David Mitchell – up till now. Oh boy, one of the good things about this book club is the chance to be put right about certain no-goes in your life and now I’m on page 83 I’m completely swept over and converted. Yes to David Mitchell and his, as the Guardian put it, delicious prose!
The story (semi-autobiographical), takes us into the fantastic world of thirteen-year-old Jason, who’s desperately trying to hide that he is a stutterer. But it’s also a brilliant study of Britain in the 1980s and and and – just read it!

Join the book club anytime (you don’t need to sign anywhere, not to worry!), we are always glad to make new acquaintances & you can buy the book in the shoppe with a 10% discount!
