I really enjoyed Un Lun Dun, great plays on words and a really interesting world! It's an imaginative reminder to think about all the rubbish in the world and where it's going.

A rich and delightful book that's full of unexpected twists and turns. Un Lun Dun is where lost things go and two girls, Zanna and Deeba, end up there one strange night in fulfillment of an ancient prophecy. While it owes a debt to such wonderful books as Alice in Wonderland and Neil Gaiman's Neverwhere and Coraline, Un Lun Dun is a uniquely original where objects such as umbrellas and milk cartons have a life of their own. While it was written for young readers, this book will appeal to readers of all ages.

"Review A Day" by , "Un Lun Dun doesn't have the breathless otherness and depth of Perdido Street Station, but it isn't intended to....Un Lun Dun is a nice little morsel that makes a great chaser after a dense nonfiction book, and is a good recommendation for someone who has already read Philip Pullman's fabulous His Dark Materials series (and those books about the boy wizard)." (read the entire Powells.com review)
"Review" by , "[A] dark, charming, robust, comical adventure played according to new rules."
"Review" by , "The characters are well realized and the book has a fair amount of sociopolitical subtext, mostly about questioning the status quo and thinking for oneself."
"Review" by , "Mieville's compelling heroine and her fantastical journey through the labyrinth of a strange London forms that rare book that feels instantly like a classic and yet is thoroughly modern."
"Review" by , "A book which shows the world as it truly is: full of marvels and monsters and unexpected opportunities for heroism and magic. Un Lun Dun is delicious, twisty, ferocious fun, a book so crammed with inventions, delights, and unexpected turns that you will want to start reading it over again as soon as you've reached the end."
"Review" by , "Many young readers will no doubt find the adventure compelling....In a way, the novel feels like a screenplay, ready to have its delightful ideas translated to the purely visual."
"Review" by , "Mieville can spin just about anything into fantastic silk, but he doesn't seem to understand that the kids who read YA books are smart and resilient."
