Kraken by China Mieville

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I really like Mieville’s style but the plot itself got on ny nerves. I will definitely look for other stuff by him, and look forward to basking in his style and worldview but i just don’t expect a good story out of him.

The protagonist didn’t feel like he was searching for answers, he just felt lost and meandering.  In fact most of the characters did.  I realize Mieville was trying to go for the chaos of London city life but i need a plot to pull me through.

EDIT 5.21.2012:  I tried, I’m done. Mieville sucks. Nice try though
