    I ve known about Mieville for a long time But I don t know if I ve ever read one of his books before Generally speaking though, people I respect enjoy his books, and that s the best way I know to find new things to read Simply said I really enjoyed it Strange enough to be wondrous, but not so bizarre that

    Overtly political, teasingly intricate, and deeply intertextual, China Mi ville s Iron Council is everything I expect to love in great speculative fiction, and nearly everything I know I love in Mi ville s work.Yet, since its publication, I have only read it once, and I still find myself ranking it third of Mi vill

    Iron Council is China Mi ville s most overtly political fiction work, but don t pigeonhole it Between the revolutionary fervor, fantasy, trains, and Western like parts runs a common theme of love and the painful, desperate, doomed human longing I loved this book It was not the insta love like it was with The Scar but a lon

    Dear China,It s not you, it s me.I wanted to like Iron Council , and there were parts of it I really did like, but the old magic was just not there.I remember first meeting you on the pages of Kraken, and your fantastic images, scenes and people made me want to spend time with you.Then we spent some time together stepping in betwee

    We live in a culture that desires fragmented stories stories that are told quickly and compellingly, so we can move on to the next tale It is why we love visual forms so much It is why YA fiction is increasingly popular with older crowds It is why graphic novels are on the rise as a literary form But where are the novellas Where are books like One Day in the Life of I

    I love the first two Bas Lag books but it took me ages to get around to this third volume due to the relatively high number of less than enthusiastic reviews on Goodreads and elsewhere Yes, I can be swayed by reviews if the consensus opinion leans towards the negative At the end of the day though I could not resist picking this book up as it is the last Bas Lag volume for the

    Recall in my review of The Scar how I was whining about my opinion of China Mi ville and his novels remaining relatively constant How I wanted to read something different, something I could say didn t rank equally with the other three novels by him that I have read This is the story of why I should have been careful with my wishing.I knew something was wrong perhaps I should say off a
