www.mumsnet.com/Talk/adult_fiction/1183441-Jacob-de-Zoet-worth-persevering old thread discusses it . I perservered but felt the opening chapter was best - it all gets very strange

Sorry to butt in, but just to flag that this is going to be our September book of the month. So any comments/questions you'd like to put to David Mitchell, please keep an eye out for the thread that will start in the Book of the month topic at beginning of Sept. Thanks.
