I KNOW Perdito Street Station will be awesome. I mostly enjoy Miéville and a lot of people with good taste in books love it. So yeah. One day... ;)
Read it when you can, xiagan. Jump it up the TBR pile if you have to. Seriously you'd love it, I think.
I will expand your TBR pile.

To whet your appetite Xiagan - google Perdido St Station and choose Images  :)

I didn't like Perdido Street that much. I'd say going in with extreme expectations is definitely one way delayed reading can end up going wrong, so I just wanted to try to bring things down a bit. :)
