    I found this to be an interesting and enjoyable read¿an original

    I found this to be an interesting and enjoyable read—an original concept, a good story, and an easier read than many of Mieville's recent books. (I've seen it characterized as a Young Adult book, but I thought it had more in common with Mieville's adult works than his previous YA book, Un Lun Dun. I would say it could readily be enjoyed by either group). I found the setting to be absolutely delightful, and I would love to see another novel set here (though I wouldn't expect to). It kept me up late at night, turning pages.

    That said, I don't think it's Mieville's best book, either. Besides the main character, I thought the characters seemed kind of thin. The plot was interesting but perhaps not as exciting as some of his other books. Additionally, although essentially what I expected, the ending was a little bit of an anticlimax, and slightly odd and unsatisfying.

    All that said, on balance it is still a great book, and perhaps a good introduction to the worlds of China Mieville.
