  •  'Kraken' worked for me. Miéville has a rare fault (4+ / 0-)

    he is too original. Well, that may be impossible, to my taste. He reaches in too many creative directions at once. Kraken felt like it had more shape, fit together into a more coherent story than, say, The Scar.

    I'm thrilled by Miéville's constant questing, and he's learning and improving as he goes. Stephenson did this too - it took him awhile to get the whole-novel thing sorted out.
