I gave up on this twice when I first tried to read it. It's pretty incomprehensible for a while - even more so than the beginning of "The City and The City". But I decided to persevere, having liked previous Mieville novels, and I'm really glad I did. It turns into a really imaginative and original story - there's enough spoilers and descriptions in other reviews. The main thing is that if you're in the early stages of the book and wondering whether to bother forcing your way through - the answer is a most emphatic yes! In the end I absolutely loved it. If only I'd loved it when I first started it, it would have had the full five stars.
