perdido street station


China Mieville is a master of imaginative worlds, and while the story this novel tells isn’t exactly groundbreaking, it’s still a thoroughly enjoyable ride due to the utterly fascinating world it takes place in.

Imaginative, complex fantasy setting
More interesting for the world it establishes than the story it tells
Interesting, likable characters
Involving plot with lots of twists and turns

One thought on “[Novel] Perdido Street Station (China Mieville)

  1. Yeah the setting was definitely the highlight of that novel. Very imaginative. Personally I enjoyed Embassytown more than Perdito Street Station, but I am pretty much alone in that regard as far I know. Not as imaginative but with a stronger central theme.
