Book Review: Un Lun Dun by China Miéville

Thursday, 15 September 2011

Had to mention this book as I just I loved it. It's urban fantasy, probably classified as "young adult". It's an alternative city story, telling the tale of the weird and wonderful adventures of two London girls in an alternative version of their home town.

It's a book that just sparkles with imagination and crazy ideas. Witty, amusing and thoroughly entertaining throughout.

Great stuff. Highly recommended.


  1. Ooooh saw this on the 3 for 2 offer at waterstones! Will investigate! Thanks for the info and review. Take care x

  2. I read The City and the City and was impressed by his use of realistic dialogue -- the way people actually speak, not the way characters speak in books. I have Perdido Street Station on Gizmo, and it sounds like I'll need to check this one out, too!

  3. Old Kitty : well worth investigating!

    Milo : Yep, that's an interesting book too. This one is very different, although somehow not actually that different ...

  4. Thank you for the review! It sounds like a great book. :)

  5. Golden Eagle : Yep, I really enjoyed it. My daughter's reading it now ...


I'd love to know what you think.
