Description

David Mitchell's electrifying debut novel takes readers on a mesmerizing trek across a world of human experience through a series of ingeniously linked narratives. Oblivious to the bizarre ways in which their lives intersect, nine characters-a terrorist in Okinawa, a record-shop clerk in Tokyo, a money-laundering British financier in Hong Kong, an old woman running a tea shack in China, a transmigrating "noncorpum" entity seeking a human host in Mongolia, a gallery-attendant-cum-art-thief in Petersburg, a drummer in London, a female physicist in Ireland, and a radio deejay in New York-hurtle toward a shared destiny of astonishing impact. Like the book's one non-human narrator, Mitchell latches onto his host characters and invades their lives with parasitic precision, making Ghostwritten a sprawling and brilliant literary relief map of the modern world.

Professional reviews

"With an intricately crafted plot and well-defined characters, this audiobook demonstrates author David MitchellÕs literary potential. It also benefits from narrator William RycroftÕs ability to convey the diversity and complexity of storylines using a broad array of tones, accents and inflections. Nine diverse characters, one of whom is a terrorist, inexorably move toward a shared destiny. Each chapter is written in the first person and is set in a different international locale, creating a challenge for the narrator. Rycroft adeptly differentiates between the various locations and subtly distinguishes each of the key players. This ambitious debut demonstrates how entertaining out-of-the-box creativity can be.
