Reviews

"[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
