Just finished reading The City & The City by China Miéville. I got totally hooked. The way he manages to make believable the idea of two different cities sharing the same space is really interesting. I mean, it’s just a slightly exaggerated symbolic vision of how complex and multilayered actual cities are, and it’s probably why it works so well. The concept is less surreal than it first appears to be. Do yourself a favor and read it if you haven’t, it’s really worth it.
