Perdido Street Station by China Mieville
Perdido Street Station

Anthony Thayer, September 2, 2011

The story Mr. Mieville spins about this amazing steampunk metropolis is so sprawling and varied that it is difficult to fit into my poor brain. Every re-read reveals more and more of the world, and every book that takes place in this world only adds to the weight and feel. Politics and rage and romance and descriptions that defy description make the whole thing feel so real. Though difficult to read at times, it pays to keep with it and see it through all of the filth and grit for the shining core of the story to come through.
