Rick Kleffel gets his hands on the new Miéville: “The Miéville you’ll find here is a rather different writer than the one who wrote ‘Perdido Street Station’. He’s stripped down his prose, and though his imagination is slightly less grotesque, it is no less fecund. ‘Un Lun Dun’ is the sort of novel that parents can actually, easily read their children, one chapter at a time. The chapters are short, titled and any single chapter tends to be say three to four pages, a nice easy chunk to read them before they go nighty-night.”
