This was a very good book (others in the series not so much) but sometimes he gets bogged down in creating the city and not enough time working on characters and plot...the characters sometimes get lost in the city. What I mean is the descriptions of the city and the nature of the individual oddities take precedence over telling a good story.

Still this was a very good book...but it could have been a great book.
