My review of the award-winning The City and the City by China Miéville is now up on the SFF Chronicles web site. You can find it here.
Filed under: book review, books, china miéville, science fiction
I’m not sure it’s a “stunningly original” concept. He simply applied (albeit ingeniously) some basic tenants of Italo Calvino’s ‘Invisible Cities’ to the world of sci-fi
But yes, for science fiction Miéville does introduce outside concepts in a fascinating way.
GREAT review!!! Thank you!
p.s. check out Calvino’s ‘Invisible Cities’! One of the best experimental European writers of the 20th century…
