The City & the City

Cover for The City & the City


In­ter­est­ing book. A nice de­par­ture from the baroque style Miéville cul­ti­vates in the New Crobu­zon book­s. The in­ten­tion­al­ly hard names of things are a turnoff at first, but af­ter a while, you start un­see­ing it.

In­ter­est­ing premise, and I spit in the gen­er­al di­rec­tion of the pub­lish­er who con­vinced Miéville that the sub­ti­tle "The last ad­ven­ture of In­spec­tor Bor­lú" had to go.

Cryptonomicon (Crypto, #1)

Cover for Cryptonomicon (Crypto, #1)


I fin­ished reread­ing Crypto­nomi­con. It should tell you some­thing when some­one rereads a al­most-1000-­page be­he­moth of a book. It's a fun book, it tells you stuff you don't know, it con­tains a very en­ter­tain­ing ac­tion thriller and a big-busi­ness thriller, and half a dozen oth­er books with­in.

It's re­al­ly re­al­ly good.
