  •  I loved the first 2/3 or so of Kraken (3+ / 0-)

    but the latter part of the book I found tiresome.  Mieville had created a bunch of compelling characters at the start and in the latter part of the book they lost all identity as they were whisked from one situation to another.  I did love its insane humor and incredible imagination but definitely felt that the characterization suffered as a result.
