Where to begin with Kraken, in just 100 words? This is a book about religion, about getting it right instead of getting it wrong. A police procedural that’s been turned inside out about the world just ’round the corner that you know is there but pass by. A book about London, gods, trade unions, ghosts and destiny. Most of those words could be said about several books, but Kraken takes it to the next level. Possibly Miéville’s best work to date. A personal challenge, hard to put down, layered and complex and I almost can’t wait to read it again.
