This is the hardest book I have read in ages. I needed a dictionary close by because I needed to look up the meaning of so many words, and sometimes the words weren't in the dictionary. Mr. Mieville has attempted to imagine conversations from a Great Britain that never existed, and therefore, new words were needed. This made this work of fiction hard to read, but -- I think that China Mieville succeeded in creating an imaginative, exciting, and fascinating world with a most unbelievable crime committed for the most unusual of motives, and wonderful characters whom he brought to life. I'm glad I hung in there until the end. This was a great read and worth the effort.
