Pequena biografia
Miéville nació en Willesden, un barrio de clase trabajadora al noroeste de Londres, donde ha vivido desde la infancia. Creció junto a su madre, que era profesora, y su hermana. Sus padres se separaron justo después de su nacimiento, de manera que Miéville suele decir que nunca ha conocido a su padre realmente. A los 18 años, en 1990, se marchó a Egipto, donde permaneció un año enseñando inglés. Allí desarrolló un creciente interés por la cultura árabe y la política de Oriente Medio.

Clearly aimed at the young adult market and therefore not having the depth and scope of the New Crozubon novels - this is still unmistakably Mieville and therefore brilliantly imaginative inventive and enjoyable. Flying London buses with conductors who can really conduct electricity, Ninja Dustbins and a character who is an old fashioned diving suit filled with various forms of sealife. Echoes of Lewis Carroll with syntax, grammer and wordplay becoming integral to the development of the plot. Room for a sequel or 2 based on the ending as well.… (mais)

Quite difficult to get into and didn't seem to really go anywhere. Will add to my re-read list and see if I change my mind.
