Fantasy Review: ‘Perdido Street Station’ by China Miéville

Perdido Street StationI reread Perdido Street Station.  I don’t have a whole lot to say about it; it is really good.  A lot of people like it’s follow up, The Scar, better.  And while Bellis is an amazing character, reading the magic of Bas Lag for the first time has stayed with me more.  If you have not read it, please do so.  If you don’t trust me go read any other trusted reviewer (ha, lumped myself in with trusted reviewers). Because what follows is not a review.  The Weaver felt the world weave would be more beautiful if I let him in, and who am I to argue?  I like my ear attached to my head and am down to one pair of scissors.

Friends, The Weaver.

I FIND MYSELF PINING LONGING TIME MATTERS NOT THE BOOK HAS NOT BEEN READ IN LONG THE COPY ON MY SHELF IS STAYED THE WEB INSISITS ON THE SAME FROM LIBRARY SEE THE SCREEN AS IT LIGHTS THE WORLDWEAVE IS BETTER CLEARNER LESS CUMBERSON TO THE APPENDAGES AND HISTORY REPEATS
