>>7615393 Just stared reading it a few days ago. Slow start, but it seems to be getting a bit better. I find his writing style off-putting and the narrative feels choppy. I'm going to try to stick with it in hopes there's a good payoff in the end.
>>7615393 The world building is great. Would love to have an exploration novel in this setting.
Unfortunately, like almost all of Mieville's writing, it suffers from its characters being too passive, with events happening to them. He lacks the ability to really create a sense of forward movement in his narratives which results in his novels always feel slower than they should be considering the worlds he builds. Still - I appreciate the quasi-mindbending ideas in Embassytown and The City & The City that make you think a little harder than a lot of other speculative fiction or science fiction (whichever you want to call it).
>>7616323 >Oh my god...so in other words you get all your opinions from others instead of forming your own? Some day you'll be an adult and have to think for yourself.
as someone who's been living in the adult world with grownups for close to 20 years i have bad news, adults are just teenagers who are slightly less rude, if you weren't thinking for yourself by 8th grade you're not going to suddenly start just because you managed to not die for 18 years
