Three Moments of an Explosion: StoriesThree Moments of an Explosion: Stories by China Miéville

My rating: 3 of 5 stars


China Mieville is full of great, interesting ideas and his stories often follow these ideas to their full potential. This collection, though, left me a little cold. Some of the ideas are so big and interesting that the format of the short story is too tight for them; they need room to breathe and grow. So some of these stories felt very rushed to me or, worse, felt like just the notes of the ideas rather than being fully fleshed out. For me, the longer stories in this collection are the more successful, though the title story is short and powerful. A mixed bag.
