Recenzii

" Mitchell's rendering of time and place in this new book has a warm and lived-in feel. . . . [W]hat Mitchell has set out to do here - to capture the flux of youth, and to dazzle the reader with everyday, awkward human interaction rather than clever narrative conceits - is risky and rewarding. . . . Mitchell's obvious efforts to please the reader work wonderfully, and the novel is never less than tremendously engaging. . . ."
-- "Toronto Star"
" Warmly personal, funny and as matter-of-fact and grounded as [Mitchell' s] other books are enigmatic and lofty, Black Swan Green has a strong autobiographical flavour. . . . An easy and enjoyable read, Black Swan Green is at its most compelling when the dialogue is fraught with tension. . . . [I]t offers more in the way of intimacy [than Mitchell's other work]: It offers a friendship with its precocious and well-meaning young narrator that persists well beyond the last word."
-- "The Globe and Mail"
Praise for David Mitchell:
" David Mitchell entices his readers on to a rollercoaster. . . . Then - at least in my case - they can't bear the journey to end. . .a complete narrative pleasure that is rare. . . .Powerful and elegant. . . . He isn't afraid to jerk tears or ratchet up suspense - he understands that's what we make stories for. . . . He plays delicious games with other people's voices, ideas and characters."
-- A. S. Byatt, "The Guardian "(UK)
" Audacious, exhilarating. . . . A formidable creation. . . . [Mitchell' s] brilliance takes one's breath away in a manner not unlike afirst experience of Chartres or the Duomo. It is a pleasure to sit inside such an edifice, and to marvel. Repeat visits are in order. Each time, a little more structure is revealed. Each time, the space grows less intimidating. Until, finally, it is just a book, one that you are reading with amazement and delight."
-- "The Globe and Mail"
Praise for "Cloud Atlas":
" Cloud Atlas is a head rush, both action-packed and chillingly ruminative."
-- People
" Mitchell has the imagination and technique to deliver a fully figured world with its own language, landscape and customs. An astonishing range of textures and voices are combined to make these worlds feel real. . . . An exorbitant artistic effort has yielded an overwhelming literary creation. . . . Mitchell's storytelling in Cloud Atlas is of the best."

Praise for "Cloud Atlas"
"Cloud Atlas is a head rush, both action-pack
"[David Mitchell has created] one of the most endearing, smart, and funny young narrators ever to rise up from the pages of a novel. . . . The always fresh and brilliant writing will carry readers back to their own childhoods. . . . This enchanting novel makes us remember exactly what it was like."--"The Boston Globe"

"[David Mitchell is a] prodigiously daring and imaginative young writer. . . . As in the works of Thomas Pynchon and Herman Melville, one feels the roof of the narrative lifted off and oneself in thrall."--"Time"

"[A] brilliant new novel . . . In Jason, Mitchell creates an evocation yet authentically adolescent voice."--"The New York Times Book Review"

"Alternately nostalgic, funny and heartbreaking."--"The Washington Post"

"Great Britain's "Catcher in the Rye"--and another triumph for one of the present age's most interesting and accomplished novelists."--"Kirkus Reviews" (starred review)

"This book is so entertainingly strange, so packed with activity, adventures, and diverting banter, that you only realize as the extraordinary novel concludes that the timid boy has grown before your eyes into a capable young man."--"Entertainment Weekly"
