I’ve started to read The City & The City by China Miéville. It’s been ages since I’ve last read some fiction and oh boy it feels absolutely great.

I really liked Perdido Street Station, and this one is quite different. More realistic, since it takes place in our world (or at least, refers to real places) but in a way much weirder.

It starts as a classic murder investigation, and slowly turns into some very symbolic magic realism while keeping a strong naturalist side. I love it so far.
