China Mieville

I enjoy China Mieville. Here’s a brief summary of the books by him that I’ve read. Some of them are pretty long, so I’ve left out a few details.

King Rat – Guy finds out he’s half rat, starts eating garbage and hanging out in the sewers. And there’s also a murderer on the loose.

Perdido Street Station – A rogue scientist unwittingly releases a psychedelic winged terror on the metropolis of New Crobuzon.

The Scar – A woman, while fleeing New Crobuzon, is captured by pirates who inhabit a floating city made up of the boats they have seized.

Iron Council – Renegades roam the wilderness in a train by constantly taking apart the tracks behind the locomotive and rebuilding them in front.

The City & The City – A murder mystery that spans two cities in two countries. But the two cities and countries occupy the same geographical space. Whoa.

    The Scar and Embassytown are my favorites.

      The Scar was probably my favorite as well. Still need to read Kraken and Embassytown.
