This was one of Mieville's weirdest I've ever read. The world took some getting used to, but got easier as it went along. It's certainly YA in characterization, theme, and writing style, however, I'm not sure if the target audience will buy what Mieville is selling. It doesn't help that Mieville tries to be a little clever with his storytelling and doesn't really explain much of anything. If you're only a casual Mieville reader, you could probably skip this book.
