This book was driven by a great and very imaginative plot.
China Mieville's characters and story lines are both out of this world and of it; the writing here is vivid and the detail of an imagined world is excellent.

This is piece of fiction that borrows heavily from Moby Dick, Treasure Island, and even Robinson Crusoe. Read morePublished 20 days ago by Norman Owens

A good book that sets your imagination running, but not as fantastic as "Unlundun" by same writer.Published 2 months ago by GMM
A good read. A very unique premise, thoughtfully built and expanded upon throughout the book.Published 3 months ago by Brian Vineys
