I had read about how great this book is and how Mieville got inspired on Moby-Dick to write it that I thought I was actually going to enjoy it. But nope this one went to the list of ‘abandoned’ books that I won’t pick up again.

Sham Yes ap Soorap travels with a crazy captain who is obsess hunting for a the beast that took her arm. Yeap, in this one the captain is a she. One day they come upon a wrecked train that is just the beginning of something bigger and more dangerous.

The concept of the story is interesting but Mieville tries to deliver too much fantasy in such a complicated way that it just lost its appeal. 

What I liked: the drawings.

What I didn’t like: The writing. I’m just not a fan of so complicated & weird writing. He uses the symbol ‘&’ instead of ‘and’ and other things that should make the writing unique but that just confused me. 

What did you think of this review?
