Staff Reviews

To be honest, this book is more mystery than fantasy. It's a bit of mind bender as you try to figure out how these two cities "work." Is it magic? Science? Neither? Definitely thought-provoking and discussion-worthy. This one still lingers in my mind years later.

— Rachel H

June 2009 Indie Next List

“A labyrinthine mystery as well as a visionary look at identity, politics, and geography, The City & the City is simply stunning. Mieville juggles a murder, two cities' mysterious pasts, and a tense political situation with deft prose and compelling characters. Mieville's latest is utterly enthralling, absorbing, and, ultimately, unforgettable.”
— Jenn Northington, The King's English, Salt Lake City, UT
