Can't wait for Miéville's new novel?

That was mouth watering. The City & The City is defintiely a book for me.

I read Un Lun Dun by China Miéville and really enjoyed it.
Beside this the New Crobuzon series and King Rat are on my shelf - unfortunately unread.

IMO, THE CITY AND THE CITY stacks up well compared to his previous books, but won't set the genre afire like PERDIDO STREET STATION did. It's closer in style and format to his short stories in LOOKING FOR JAKE than any of his novels, I think.

I've loved every single Mieville book, even Iron Council which some people on the internet thought was his weakest book.

His biggest selling point to me is definitely his amazing imagination and worldbuilding skills.

Great video. His voice doesn't sound at all like I imagined :-)
