Perdido Street Station

Perdido Street Station - China MiƩville I listened to the audio version of this book.

Firstly, I believe over 40% of this book could have been left out. A huge amount was spent on narrative that was not needed nor help progress the story. I found it to cause confusion at times, also the book jumped from character to character with no clear indication of whos point of view we were now dealing with, that could also have been down to the narrator of the audio book. He did read fast at times.
I didn't gel with the characters but found that the author didn't really spend time describing them so I couldn't picture them. The world building was seriously lacking. The author hinted at this world but seemed to want to keep it a secret.
The part were he describes pigs been killed was unnecessary. It was not needed.
If it wasn't for the fact I had this on audio I would t have got past the first chapter. It's a good job audible let me return it.
This book wasn't for me. I didn't enjoy it.
