Reminded by this month's selection that it has been my library for almost two years and needing a break from history books I started it last Wednesday and was so caught up with it that I stopped reading only when I could no longer hold my eyes open. Finished it early yesterday and although I didn't like the last two or three chapters so much decided to re-read it because I did have a bit of trouble keeping all the boys straight and guessed at (or ignored) the meaning of a lot of the British words.

I am curious though...which part near the middle are you referring to? I was especially captivated by solaruim
When transferring Black Swan Green
to my PE I was surprised to find two other of Mitchell's books (Cloud Atlas
and The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet
) in Calibre! Not at all sorry, but am wondering why I bought three books not knowing whether I would even want to read (or finish) more than one. Must have been trying to use up Fictionwise bonus points!
