So far this is so different from Perdido Street Station or The Scar, but his lyrical style is still there, and that's what I like most.

this is good so far. A sort of existential mystery, based in a city which may or may not be in our world. Very intriguing so far.

close to halfway through, enjoying this a lot. Won't reveal too much, since Mieville asked an interviewer not to tell the central conceit.

the mystery of this mystery, for me, is what Beszel and Ul Qoma ARE. The mystery in the story isn't that intriguing

almost done, and the central mysteries are revealing themselves. Lots to think about concerning this.

I'm holding Jeremy's copy of the ARC hostage while he reads a couple of manuscripts I'd recommended.

The best fantasy makes the impossible seem probable. Miéville manages to do this in spades.

I'm pretty eager to see how this compares to the Bas-Lag novels.

Trying to get a feel for the setting -- sort of real and fabricated. Current, but post-Communist. Reminds me of Arkady Renko.

Kind of dense compared to Bas-Lag. Slowly getting into the story.

Picking up. In fact it may even be getting pretty good.

Act 3 looks like it'll be pretty good.

Just finished the first part, and the whole mystery/wacky-city-thing he does is in full effect! Great stuff so far!

If China Miéville weren't so intimidating, I would say I want to have his babies.

A good start so far, although I'm curious about the seeming "obsession" that Tyador has with the dead woman. "Our Fulana. . ."

This one is starting off a little more conventional than past books, but I love the particular color of blue on the cover.

The first couple chapters of the book are really frustrating thanks to frequent use of invented terms and expressions with no context.

Interesting mix of fantasy and reality. I'm too tired to explain more.

"She probably should have been publishing some of them as papers in journals . . . but she wasn't" - a sign to get back to work?

Written in a way that gives the speaker an accent without resorting to apostrophes. Also a lot like Miéville by way of VanderMeer.
