30 Days of Genre: Day 23

Ria, over on Bibliotropic has started a new meme in which we discuss thirty topics on genre in thirty days. For a full list of topics covered, see my first post on this meme.

Day 23 – Genre novel you haven’t read, but wish you had
The one genre novel I wish I’d read, but haven’t (yet) is China Miéville’s Perdido Street Station. China Miéville is one of the big names in modern fantasy these days and to my shame I have to admit I’ve only read one of his books, the much lauded and awarded The City & the City. I really liked it, I thought it was clever, an interesting premise and an intriguing murder mystery. I concluded my review by stating that I wanted to read more by Miéville and that he’d become a must-read author, so I guess I’d better get cracking. Embassytown was released last month and I still have to read all his previous works!

    I only recently read my first Mieville book, and I'm interested to read more of his work, certainly. The City and The City is the main one I've got my eyes on, but Perdido Street Station also sounds interesting.

    I'm reading Embassytown right now—my first Miéville—and I'm loving it.
