Title: The Windup Girl
Author: Paolo Bacigalupi
Stars: 5 of 5
This is a difficult book. Very difficult. That makes it all the more worthwhile to read.
This book is loaded with genetics, manipulation, history, views and visions, hopes, dreams… you name it and I probably found it somewhere.
All of this and also the background of each character is intriguing and takes you on a trip through a Bangkok you’ve never seen before. I think that’s a good thing, although having a peek at a Megodont would be amazing. It’s difficult to say much about this book without giving things away. If you like a peek into our possible future you need to read this. Again, it’s not an easy book if you really read it.
