I really wanted to read this book, but something just didn't click for me. I suspect I now understand how those who dislike China Miéville feel.
Also, sometimes the author uses words strangely. He spent a chapter writing "catenary chains". Catenary means either "chain-like" or something in a specific curve. Since these chains are just lying on the ground he's saying "chain-like chains" over and over again, and it just bothered me way more than it should.
The concept of the universe where the book takes place is cool. The pace picks up a lot in the second half, although some characters seem to just disappear.
