Finally finished China Mieville's Perdido Street Station. Decided to spend a couple hours in the middle of today just to get through it. Great book. Really got some incredible stuff going on in it.

Unfortunately, I have to say, at the moment I'm pretty teed off by the ending. Every book has an anticlimax, but this one was particularly anticlimactic and did seem to suit it. I wonder if the author was happy with the ending really or whether he simply realized he couldn't sew things up and did the best he could. I do know that around 20 pages from the end I started to get this sinking feeling that I didn't like where things were going anymore and I wasn't gong to feel satisfied. And I was right.

I will try hard not to hold its last 20 pages against the other 680.
