    China Miéville doesn’t follow trends, he sets them. Relentlessly pushing his own boundaries as a writer—and in the process expanding the boundaries of the entire field—with Embassytown, Miéville has crafted an extraordinary novel that is not only a moving personal drama but a gripping adventure of alien contact and war. In the far future, humans have colonized a distant planet, home to sentient beings famed for a language unique in the universe, one that only a few altered human ambassadors can speak....

    When a murdered woman is found in the city of Beszel, somewhere at the edge of Europe, it looks to be a routine case for Inspector Tyador Borlof the Extreme Crime Squad. But as he investigates, the evidence points to conspiracies far stranger and more deadly than anything he could have imagined. Borl must travel from the decaying Beszel to the only metropolis on Earth as strange as his own.

    What did you love best about The City & The City?

    The ins and outs of how the human mind can tune things out. Also how involved the mystery was.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The lead Detective. He was passionate about finding out the reasons for things.


    What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His style is low and just involved enough in the characters to differentiate them.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    If I tell you about it, I would have to put out a spoiler alert.


    Any additional comments?

    Very well written and read. I am really enjoying all the China Mieville's works. They are all different, are all excellent, and are all well read.
