Fun, crazy, near-apocalyptic novel centered around worship of giant squids. It’s that sort of book. 🙂
I’m a little on the fence about what to say about this book. Loved the first third. Was completely confused by the middle. And by the end, felt like a bit of a chore to finish.
Still, it’s such an inventive story, with such memorable themes, and the characters are vividly drawn and unique, so overall I liked it — enough to pick up another book by Mieville, The City and the City, to read next.
