I've read Boneshaker. I thought it was pretty good, but over-rated. Read The Passage instead.
I read The Windup Girl, and heard Paolo at Readercon. Very good but not great. Didn't read The City - but did read Kraken. Kraken was the only Mievelle I've ever read clear through; just don't care for Mieville's style.
I would love to have tried any of them... *sigh*
they dont let me out of the cage long enough to get books.
