Reviews

"A fully achieved work of art."--Ursula K. Le Guin

"The most engrossing book I've read this year, and the latest evidence that brilliant, challenging, rewarding writing of the highest order is just as likely to be found in the section labeled Science Fiction as the one marked Literature."--Jim Higgins, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

"Original, sophisticated, bristling with subversive ideas, and filled with unforgettably alien images . . . an amazing, sometimes brutal rhapsody on the uses of language."--The Christian Science Monitor

"Richly conceived . . . Embassytown has the feel of a word-puzzle, and much of the pleasure of figuring out the logic of the world and the story comes from gradually catching the full resonance of its invented and imported words."--The New York Times Book Review

"Miéville's swing-for-the-fences gusto thrills. This is Big Idea Sci-Fi at its most propulsively readable."--Entertainment Weekly

"Miéville [is] one of today's most exciting fabulist writers."--Los Angeles Times
