David Mitchell is quickly becoming my new favorite author. This is part philosophical exploration of civilization, violence, corporate america, freedom, art, and reincarnation. But all the stories that make up the whole are each fascinating and exciting in their own right, with complex main characters and thrilling plots. And I love that you get all kinds of genres and styles in this book — historical fiction, sci-fi, dystopia, 1970s conspiracy thriller… It’s one of those books that satisfies in ways novels these days rarely do. I was in awe how it all came together on the very last pages. Really looking forward to how this is adapted into a movie.
