PRAISE FOR CHINA MIeVILLE Embassytown "I cannot emphasize enough how terrific this novel is. It's definitely one of the best books I've read in the past year, perfectly balanced between escapism and otherworldly philosophizing." --Io9.com "Embassytown is a fully achieved work of art...Works on every level, providing compulsive narrative, splendid intellectual rigour and risk, moral sophistication, fine verbal fireworks and sideshows, and even the old-fashioned satisfaction of watching a protagonist become more of a person than she gave promise of being."--Ursula K Le Guin "A breakneck tale of suspense...disturbing and beautiful by turns. And yes--China Mieville's new novel is one of his best...I cannot emphasize enough how terrific this novel is."--io9 "The Kafkaesque writer journeys to the distant edges of the universe in his latest sci-fi thriller."--Entertainment Weekly "Utterly astonishing...A major intellectual achievement."--Kirkus Reviews "Brilliant storytelling...The result is a world masterfully wrecked and rebuilt."--Publishers Weekly (starred review) Kraken "The stakes [are] driven high and almost anything can happen. The reader is primed for a memorable payoff, and Mieville more than delivers."--"San Francisco Chronicle" The City & The City "If Philip K. Dick and Raymond Chandler's love child were raised by Franz Kafka, the writing that emerged might resemble . . . "The City & The City.""--"Los Angeles Times " Perdido Street Station "Compulsively readable . . . impossible to expunge from memory."--"The Washington Post Book World" The Scar "A fantastic setting for an unforgettable tale . . . memorable because of Mieville's vivid language [and] rich imagination."--"The Philadelphia Inquirer "Iron Council "A masterwork . . . a story that pops with creativity."--"Wired " Un Lun Dun "En
