Delightful. I loved the narrator. He was so real. Plus, the British expressions cracked me up.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Alot of back and forth, not sure it's a dream or daydreaming or real. All comes together nicely. Seems to have influences of Murikami's writting style.

"Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man" set in 1980s England. Jason Taylor spends a year, beginning as a rather hapless and picked-upon thirteen-year-old, who stutters and must hide his talent in poetry. By the end of the novel much has changed for the better, including his relationship with his sister and the opposite sex in general. In spite of Jason's incredibly poetic view of the world, he still sounds like a real thirteen-year-old. A welcoming introduction to David Mitchell's writing.
