Kraken extract

Pan have released an excerpt from China Miéville's new book, Kraken.

Stylistically it appears to differ from the two previous Miéville novels I've read; less baroque, perhaps a little more accessible. This opening chapter didn't really do much for me, but admittedly I was reading it pretty fast.

Still looking forward to this one.

Ach, damn and blast. You beat me to this by like four minutes!

Still, can't wait for Kraken. I really enjoyed the extract myself, and I'm all for Mieville getting a bit more accesible. I really loved The City and The City in the end, but getting going was tough after so long without reading him.

Hmm, that excerpt reads a little rough.

Still, it's China Mieville. I'll be getting the book regardless.
