I'm about a third of the way through. So far quite enjoying it, though I'm not finding it quite as absorbing as his Perdido Street Station. It took me a while to get used to the very British slang but I think I've got the knack now :)

Carly Svamvour (faganlady) | 33 comments I couldn't get into this either - found the descriptions of life, as it was, to be all told too crass.

Just didn't turn my crank.
