New Kid on the Hallway

So, what do you think of Mieville? I've read the first 2 of the New Crobuzon novels, and I came away extremely impressed with them as literary efforts, but kind of emotionally distant - I didn't find any of the characters especially sympathetic. But he's certainly good at creating a scary and creepy atmosphere!


Enjoy Dr. August! It really is a wonderful ride and a excellent read. : >

I think Mieville's interesting, but overrated--i'm hoping he'll get better as he goes on.

Interested to see that you have acquired Samuel Wainwright's Ritualism...
His life & writings are of especial interest to me, & would like to know more about where & why you acquired it, & what you make of it.
Best wishes
