3.0% "Its a slow slog, not because of the book but because I'm trying to read this while I'm still half asleep on the bus in the morning and its hard to concentrate with the chatty charlie's I ride the bus with. LOL The descriptions are like candy, it is a beautiful book full of oddness and wonder. I am going to finish it this time. I love Mieville's stuff and this is his masterpiece, superior to King Rat . . ."

Its utterly brilliant for what it does for fantasy fiction which is shatter its comfortable place and explode it in fun new ways. So yeah, its beautiful and always fun reading but I can't wait to get somewhere I haven't been. Must read faster."
