Black Swan Green: A Novel by David Mitchell
Black Swan Green: A Novel

As good as Mitchell's other work, this book is engaging from beginning to end. He puts you in the shoes of a young boy in this coming of age story, presenting him with sympathy without airbrushing the all too real compromises adolescents make. Mitchell's stylistic palette continues to amaze--his comfort with a variety of genres was on ample display in Cloud Atlas, and here he puts his skills to use in the service of a single genre and a more straightforward narrative with equally brilliant results.
