This was a challenging read. Mieville is such a master of language that he can play with it so well and use in such unexpected ways. There is still some terms and concepts he created that I still cannot wrap my mind around. If you want something that will challenge the way you see language, this an excellent book. ( )

This book makes me wish that I still worked in a book store or belonged to a book group because I would really like to discuss it with others.
It is thought provoking, difficult, controversial, and complex. I could only read @ a chapter at a sitting because the writing required processing time. The book is all about language and its importance and about perception. Do not read this if you are looking for an easy fun read. Read it if you want to stretch yourself. I'm going to percolate on it and reread in the future. I give it 4 stars because of originality and because it is really well written. ( )

Started reading this with my wife, but we were both getting lost. Picked it up again by myself and though it was a little slow going for a while, I loved it by the end. To me this is what "real" sci-fi is about, worlds/aliens that have completely different ways of doing things. Not just green guys with laser guns who act like humans.

I'm a huge Mieville fan, but sometimes his stuff is just too far out there for me. He almost always seems to be breaking new ground and whenever an author does that he's taking a risk that it just won't work for readers. ( )
  ragwaine | May 19, 2021 |
I just can't get comfortable with Mieville's writing because I am so often unsure of what he's saying. He has a wonderful gift for seeing complex societies, that's for sure, but I can't hold it all well enough to enjoy it. ( )

A total masterpiece. It takes a little while to wrap your head around what Miéville is structuring here, but he's a perfect guide throughout - always telling you just enough to keep you going, but never pulling back entirely to give you everything. This is a thing that a lot of science fiction novelists struggle with, and it's probably why this is my favorite science fiction novel in a long, long time. ( )

Readers who want to delve no further than turning the pages will come away satisfied with "Embassytown," because Mieville's fertile imagination has created a fascinating alien species to go along with plenty of familiar human drama.
tilføjet af RBeffa | RedigerContra Costa Times, Clay Kallam (Sep 28, 2011)
 
It is a miracle of a novel, one where Big Ideas cohabitate with Monsters, and neither is lessened by what academic propriety insists must be capital letters.
 
Miéville has a muscular intellect, successfully building a science fictional world around semiotics. For some readers, that will be enough.
 
I don’t hold this will to abstraction against him. Genre writers, and for that matter writers of the well-wrought middlebrow novel, mostly tell the usual stories in the usual way: narrative and character are advanced through conventional action. Miéville is up to something else.
 
In this sense, Embassytown plays out as a novel of metropolitan-colonial conflict, holding out the hope that language might not serve only as a tool of oppression, but be reclaimed as the instrument that makes resistance possible.
