Kraken by China Mieville is a dark tale of London - a London that might be, and never was. What begins as a fascinating mystery set in a museum becomes a bizarre quest, fraught with cultists and confusion but maintaining the structure of a mystery.
I was initially wary of the new Mieville novel, having had my heart ripped out (beautifully, nightmarishly) by Perdido Street Station. But Kraken maintains the intensity of his other novels without being quite so cruel to his characters and readers.
Provoking sometimes hilarity, sometimes nausea, and always thought, Kraken's inky depths and sparkling heights deserve attention.
