      Great book. Definitely up there as one of the best for 2010! Very different to Perdido street station and I think testament to how good a writer he is because he's not getting boxed in by a genre. I really enjoy detective fiction and this was a procedural one that was also urban fantasy. Great mix. He tied up all the loose ends - reminiscent of all the great detectives at a mystery's climax. It really became excellent at about the 3/4 way mark. Move this book up on your TBR list!! :)

      I read PSS last Christmas period, and absolutely loved it. I found Mieville's writing so rich and felt immersed in the world he created. That's why I was curious about King Rat. I am debating whether to check it out, or possibly his latest novel Kraken... too many choices...

      I see you finished King Rat recently, with a 3/5 rating. I was planning on reading it, but thinking otherwise now. How did it stack up against Perdido St. Station (the only other Mielville I've read)?

    Well its offical! I'm now a graduate student about to embark on my Masters in teaching (secondary). Very excited. Other than that, I'm a Librarian but I'm at home full time with my two beautiful children.
