Reads: Iron Council

More steampunk weirdness from China Miéville – this time New Crobuzon is in the middle of a war with another nation, while at the same time dealing with political upheaval at home. Meanwhile, golemist Judah Low and a small band set out to find the legendary rogues of the Iron Council, who may or may not be New Crobuzon’s final hope.

While I certainly enjoyed Iron Council , there was something so oppressive about the atmosphere and tone that made it a little depressing to read. Still, it still has alot of cool, twisted ideas ala Miéville though – I particularly enjoyed the flying zombie parasite hands.
