Railsea - China Miéville I was hoping China Mieville could become my latest author obsession, but I sorta kinda hated this. For me, it was too much style, too little substance. I loathed the prose (ampersand abuse is a serious problem!) and at a third of the way through, I had no investment in the story or characters.Perhaps I'll try another of Mieville's works in a few months once this feeling of disappointment becomes less acute.
