I read this book during a stressed out time, so my mindset and the philosophical complexities of Mieville's writing were not in sync. Still, I can admire the astounding sense of place, a paranoid landscape worthy of Kafka's Trial, and a masterful police procedural with an police inspector frustrated by bureaucracy. I'll try another Meiville book when my mindset is more accepting of the surreal.
