    Epub China Miéville #214; Embassytown PDFEPUB #180; #214; embassytown pdf, Embassytown PDFSometimes words can shatter worlds Especially when they are like this I don't want to be a simile any I said I want to be a metaphor This book lived up to all my expectations No it did not quite knock The Scar off its Miévillish pedestal but it came pretty damn close to it It is by far my favorite Mieville book I reread it and listened to it times than I can remember I loved it so much and yet when a colleague politely asked what it was about when I told him I stayed up half the night before taking call to read it I could not figure out how to describe it in a few words So I'll remedy it nowWhat IS this book about? It's about language of course or rather Language It's about the inevitable and destructive culture clashes It's about the p

    Epub China Miéville #214; Embassytown PDFEPUB #180; #214; embassytown pdf, Embassytown PDFHow can a novel about language leave one speechless? In a good way I hasten to addThis was the third Mieville I’ve read and they are all very different in style content and my liking or notThe core idea of this one is language how minds shape language and how language shapes minds Wonderful as it was I can see reasons why some people would hate it or find it too weird or just not sci fi enough If you don’t delight in polysemy and are not interested in the difference between simile and metaphor this is unlikely to be the book for you Because of the tantalising style of storytelling drip feeding the reader snippets about things from the trivial to the fundamental it’s definitely a book worth rereading and that is especially true on the subject of language to which I’ve devoted a whole section of this review which I will doubtless need to rewrite after a rereadThe plot is to some extent secondary but it is the reminiscences going back to childhood of

    Epub China Miéville #214; Embassytown PDFEPUB #180; #214; embassytown pdf, Embassytown PDFThe girl who wanted to be a metaphorThere is a certain “What the hell??” quality about a China Mieville novel especially in the first few pages The City and the City continued on in this quizzical absurdist mouth breathing until damn near the middle of the book To put in Forrest Gump terms the box of chocolates may reveal pieces that are most definitively NOT chocolate are in point of fact not even food some bite sized morsels may be poison The box may even be a prop from a Justin Timberlake Saturday Night Live inspired skit The reader

    Epub China Miéville #214; Embassytown PDFEPUB #180; #214; embassytown pdf, Embassytown PDFI see I'm going to be a dissenting voice here but I'm afraid I found Embassytown to be weak poorly plotted and fundamentally unconvincingThe book is concerned with a settlement on a planet at the edge of the known universe The city is inhabited by Ariekei a strange species whose distinguishing feature is a unique language which has a double articulation and in which it is impossible to lie A small enclave of humans lives there and communicates with their ‘Hosts’ via a series of Ambassadors – two people bred to think as one who by talking simultaneously can communicate effectively with the Ariekei nativesSo far so good Unfortunately a lot about Miéville's world here just doesn't add up The narrator Avice is special She's an ‘immerser’ born with special abilities to navigate the ‘immer’ or sub space underlying the known universe We hear all about how unusual this is and the special tra

    Epub China Miéville #214; Embassytown PDFEPUB #180; #214; embassytown pdf, Embassytown PDFThis book very well could be the start of a new epoch Or at least I think it should be Why? Because it's not just Miéville's grand far future SF at play here full of some of the most subtle and freakishly amazing and STRANGE aliens who are very much defined by their language but because this novel works on several levels perfectly at the same timeAm I impressed? Hell yes I'm impressedBefore the humans came we didn't speak so much of certain things We were grown into Language After history we made city and machines and gave them names We didn't speak so much of certain things Language spoke us The words that wanted to be city and machines had us speak them so they could beTake this literally These aliens couldn't even conceive of us because their language is
