The City And The City

Questions about this book, which I haven't read, but cut for spoilers anyway...

1. Will I hate it? I write as someone who got the twist based on 'It's by China Mieville. It's called 'The City And The City'. It's a detective story. There's a twist'.
2. Is the behaviour of dogs explained?
3. Music?
4. Babies Crying?
5. Why in our excitingly globalised world is it not the funny story at the end of the news every day?
6. Is the amount of suspension of disbelief required reasonably constant? I think actually this is the main determining factor as whether I will want to read it.
