The City and the City
This book was my first experience with China Mieville although it looks like he has won a number of awards. He tells this story that at it's heart is a detective novel but it has elements of science fiction but doesn't quite cross-over to full fledged science fiction. All in all, it's impossible to put the story in any type of genre which is good. That makes it unique. This is a short review because I don't know how to describe the book except to say that it was good and worth your time.
