Emily Lloyd said:
There is nothing like reading China Mieville. His invention, world-building, and use of language and image are thrillingly smart. "The City and the City," his most popular book (and the book he wrote just before "Kraken")--was an anomaly (a stab at a more conventional police novel) and left me at "Eh." "Kraken" is more like his earlier stuff, "Perdido Street Station" and "The Scar"--not Urban Fantasy so much as Urban Myth, layer upon layer of allusion and wordplay and just plain great ideas. As soon as I finished "Kraken," I started again from page 1.
