Publisher's Summary

Winner of the Mail on Sunday John Llewellyn Rhys Prize.

A magnificent achievement and an engrossing experience, David Mitchell's first novel announced the arrival of one of the most exciting writers of the 21st century. 

An apocalyptic cult member carries out a gas attack on a rush-hour metro, but what links him to a jazz buff in downtown Tokyo? Or to a Mongolian gangster, a woman on a holy mountain who talks to a tree and a late night New York DJ?

Set at the fugitive edges of Asia and Europe, Ghostwritten weaves together a host of characters, their interconnected destinies determined by the inescapable forces of cause and effect.

Poor Performance great story

I love this book and delighted to have the unabridged version on Audible. The production however is cheap! Breathy, noisy performances with some downright awful accents.
My advice is re-record this book with the voice artists from the first book.

Great performance of my favourite book!

I can't understand the reviews saying the performances were breathy and hard to understand - were we listening to the same recording?? I didn't notice any issues like that at all, all very clear and well interpreted. A couple of characters didn't quite have the voice they have in my head (Neal Brose and Marco, mainly) but they were still believable as their characters and made for a brilliant audiobook.

Love David. Love his series of books.

His series of books are a masterpiece of literary enjoyment. Every time I re read I find something I missed first time round.

good origins but accents

exacerbating grating twee dialogue - for the Irish set chapters particularly, the Australian/NZ accents are also a bit traumatic. I tried to see it as a feature in the same way as the others of his books were entirely simpatico with some bizarre delivery - but I have probably been spoiled by reading/listening to the latter works first. had to drag myself through to the end.

Exceptional storytelling

Exceptional storytelling by exceptional story tellers. One of David Mitchell’s finest novel is a collection of short stories touching each other across space and time.
