For me this book was a return to the China Mieville I know and love. He's one of my favourite authors but Kraken didn't quite hit the mark for me and I actually ended up hating Embassytown. If you like Bas Lag books and his other earlier works I reckon you'll enjoy this. Don't be put off by the fact that it's a young adults book,it's great for all ages and for me was classic Mieville.
