Reviews

"A brave new book for a brave new world--fueled by a brilliant imagination and buoyed by beautifully descriptive writing."--USA Today

"[David Mitchell] has a gift for fiction's natural pleasures--intricate surprises, insidiously woven narratives, ingenious voices."--The New York Times Book Review

"Elegantly composed, gracefully plotted and full of humor."--Los Angeles Times

"Unlike so many of the chroniclers of the twenty-first-century pastiche--an industry dominated by ad men and feature-writers, not novelists--Mitchell has set out to craft actual characters, not archetypes. The result is a dazzling piece of work."--The Washington Post

"Mitchell deftly sketches each character to such a compelling extent that you become totally immersed. . . . His nine characters and their random but fateful interactions provide a playful, suspenseful foray into our ever-shrinking world."--Entertainment Weekly

"An intricately assembled FabergΓ© egg of a novel, full of sly and sometimes beautiful surprises. . . . In an era in which much literary fiction is characterized by unearned ironies and glib cynicism, it's hard not to be impressed by the humanism that animates Mitchell's book."--New York

"Gripping and innovative. . . . [Ghostwritten serves] to illustrate the strange interconnectivity of the modern world and the improvisatory nature of fate."--The New York Times

"A daring novel, uniquely structured and just as uniquely compelling."--The Denver Post
