Amazon will confuse you!,
This review is from: A Boy from Nowhere: v. 1 (Hardcover)I'm not sure if Amazon, or infact the David Mitchell who wrote this book, are looking to cash in on the success of the Author of the same name, but this IS NOT a book by David Mitchell of Cloud Atlas fame.
It is highly irresponsible of Amazon to offer the book in a bundle offer with works by the excellent writer when this is just the memoirs of some old bloke.
I've paid a fortune in international shipping to get this and send it back. Thanks a lot Amazon!

I am very grateful to read the previous comment from R.Theobold as I was about to order this book and pay international postage ...believing it to be THE David Mitchell...especially as it is linked with another of his books... BEWARE AMAZON... and trust real readers!

Thanks. I agree, if you look at the 'Bundling' of the authors, you could be misled into believing it was the 'Cloud Atlas' author.

I am also very grateful to these posts, I was going to order this (thinking it was by 'Cloud Atlas' David Mitchell) together with his first two books. I am slightly bemused as to why Amazon are still not making it clear that it is by another David Mitchell. Shame on you Amazon.
