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.
