I finished Embassytown by China Mieville, and WHAT DID I READ. It starts out as okay-if-confusing scifi with appropriately alien aliens, and a good world. It stays that way for a long time, seemingly following a pretty normal arc, and then both the action and writing quality just take off. Wow!

@tootbrute Worth what? I mean, if a book starts off good and then turns out brilliant, I'd kind of say that it was worth my time, yes ;)
