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!
