The Windup Girl. Paolo Bacigalupi by Paolo Bacigalupi
The Windup Girl. Paolo Bacigalupi

Cloverfoot, January 21, 2013

This was far and away my favorite book read in 2012. The dystopian setting he's created here is one which i found entirely and frighteningly plausible and I was often surprised and captivated by the turns the story took. It kept me deeply interested from about 50 pages in until the end. That having been said, it did take some effort to move beyond the initial pages but t's one of those books for me that left me feeling sad that it was over and i look forward to his next novel.
