Paolo Bacigalupi – The Windup Girl

Posted by Dirk under: books .

 This book won a ton of awards, including the Hugo and Nebula awards, which are about as big as SF book awards get.  I thought it was pretty decent too, though it didn’t really pull me in the way some books have in the past.  I liked the ideas and future world that he presented, but I think I’m a character guy and his characters didn’t really do the trick for me.  I just didn’t connect with them, I guess.  Still, a very cool book with lots of interesting ideas of what the world might be like after we run out of cheap fossil fuels and have some accidents with genetically modified food crops.
