Sometimes you read a new to you author and really like his/her style. You pick up a second book and then maybe a third and that’s when you go from like to love. That’s me and China Miéville’s writing right now. I started with The City & The City and enjoyed it. Moved on to Kraken and adored it. I’m now reading Un Lun Dun and loving it.
Why you might ask? Lines like this one…
“I’m Margarita Staples.” She bowed in her harness. “Extreme librarian. Bookaneer.” (pg. 154 on Nook)
Such a sucker for a book reference in a book.
