The best young author I have listened to (read) in years. China Mieville searches have always come up squat here on audible, and I was so very excited to see Perdido Street Station finally come up for availability. Please make all his other books available.
On to Mievelle himself. The cyberpunk world of New Crobuzon is disturbing, to say the least. His vivid word pictures bring to life fantastical dreams of the imagination that both shock and attract. Quite simply the most intriguing author I have come across in a very, very long time.
If you enjoyed this but haven't heard of Harry Dresden, check that out too.
Felt a bit copycatish, but Tad, being the brilliant writer pulls it off on its own merits.
Good character development, snarky dialogue, and a grand conspiracy theory meld together along with a theme that questions the religious bones in your body. A great combination.
