The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet

The Thousand Autumns of Jacob De Zoet, A Novel - David Mitchell I had a hard time with this book...I spend the first part of the book trying to figure out what was going on. Then there were sections that were very compelling that made me keep reading, but then it would go back to sections that either I didn't understand or didn't care about. I think I would have liked this book better if it focused more on the stories of De Zoet and Orito and less on the other characters.
