Ghostwritten: by David Mitchell

I don't have a lot to say about this one. Nine vaguely interlocking stories that spanned the globe. Parts of the book were exquisite, parts fascinating with their descriptiveness and creativity (I really liked the story of the transmigrating spirit in Mongolia). Other parts dragged on such that I ended up skimming the last few pages, just ready to be done. All in all though Ghostwritten is an incredible accomplishment, especially for a first novel, easy to read for its flowing prose, but hard too because of it vein of sadness that made me less inclined to pick it up each time for another sitting.
