The City & The City, by China Mieville

  • Title:  The City & The City
  • Author:  China Mieville
  • Borrowed from DC Public Library (Audiobook)
  • Started:  11/9/2015
  • Finished:  11/14/2015\
Embarrassed to say I let my biases get the better of me and assumed the author was female based on the first name China.  Have to try to limit my assumptions in the future.  Anyway, this was my first book by Mieville and I like it quite a lot.  I knew nothing about his writing going in and had to Google this book when I first started because I was so confused.  I didn't read much, no spoilers, just enough to get a basic understanding of the city/city structure.  Armed with that knowledge, I had no trouble accepting this strange premise at face value and enjoyed the book immensely.
