Review: The Windup Girl

The Windup GirlThe Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Wait, what? What did I just read?

Yeah, something like that, Captain.

I tell you what though. I liked it! If this was a series, I'd read more of them. Yeah, if you write a Malazan Book of the Windup, I'll damn read it.

Because there was so much I didn't understand. There was so much I scratched my head about and wondered WHY?! But I was engrossed. The future Thai Kingdom depicted here and the world it's set in are brilliant. I felt like I was there. I didn't always get what was coming, but if you saw someone with a white shirt, you want to blend into the crowd. I wonder though, what those white shirts were made of. I mean, as hot and sticky and humid as it was, how did they stay white?

Mr. Bacigalupi is definitely on my radar.
