The Last Kind Words
Tom Piccirilli
Iron Council - China Miéville I loved Perdido Street Station and The Scar so i was highly anticipating a return to Bas Lag but i didnt expect to find New Crobuzon like this, oppression and revolution is all around, war going on with The Tesh, whilst outside the city an expedition is taking place to find the legendary Iron Council, a train of remade and others who cast off New Crobuzons militia and escaped to be free.

It's not an easy book to like and twice i almost stopped reading, first time i went and read Terry Pratchett's Moving Pictures then came back to it then about 60% through i almost stopped for good, but i kept reading and i'm glad i did because the last third becomes a fascinating read, as tensions mount in New Crobuzon and the Iron Council heads back.

Not an easy book to enjoy but still a fascinating read.
