"Books are the plane, and the train, and the road. They are the destination, and the journey. They are home."
- Anna Quindlen
On vacation and stuck with this boring-ass book.
After the riveting weirdness of Perdido Street Station and The Scar, I was not expecting this trilogy-ender to focus endlessly on political unrest that is neither supernatural nor interesting. Hey China - I read these books for soul-sucking moth-monsters and dimension-warping creatures of the deep. NOBODY CARES ABOUT YOUR COMMUNIST REVOLUTION.
