It Doesn't Have To Be Right…

… it just has to sound plausible

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…
