It Doesn't Have To Be Right…

Reviewing the cities

1 Comment

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.

One thought on “Reviewing the cities

  1. 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…
