A full review can be found at SFF Book Review.China Miéville's brain must be an awesome and terrifying place. Un Lun Dun is a young adult adventure that takes place in a city that is so original it could be a character of its own. I cannot put into words how original and fun and clever this book is.Over 500 pages long, it reads like it's half that size. I was surprised how much I cared about all the characters (especially the milk carton Curdle) and delighted at how the author turns fantasy tropes on their head. One of the coolest and most fun YA books I have ever read.
