Embassytown Expectations

Finally picked up a copy of Embassytown and started reading on some recent flights. I so thoroughly enjoyed Kraken, it is going to be hard to top, but Mr. Mieville has a way of getting under your skin: You start his  books not knowing what to expect, and slowly you get into the flow, and by halfway through the odd creatures, exotic terminology and story line all blend together. and you find yourself hooked.

 

Now I am just enjoying the ride.
