After reading The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet, I read Black Swan Green by David Mitchell. I did like the book, but some words I had to look up because I don’t know England slang. I’m American. Also the book has some events I didn’t know about that happened in England. Also the book has a weird ending. The book was still a good book to read.
Black Swan Green is set in 1982 in Worcestershire, England. Black Swan Green is about a thirteen year old boy whose name is Jason Taylor. He has his first crush, and his first kiss. It is a coming of age book. It does have a small mention of a restaurant named The Thousand Autumns. lol By the way, Black Swan Green is a lake where Jason and boys played on.
You can buy and read this good book at Amazon.com.
