The City & The City by China Mieville

Quickie post today. I've been meaning to get a longer review written, but life got in the way.

The City & The City is deliriously weird just the way a Mieville book should be. Kinda like if you took a Philip K. Dick, Raymond Chandler & George Orwell book, blended them up with a great episode of Law & Order & poured them into a big ol' glass of Weird.

Somewhat weak on the ending (like a few of Mieville's books) but well worth reading.

Perdido Street Station still ranks as my Favorite Mieville book, this one maybe coming in third behind Un Lun Dun.
