An imaginative and unique post-apocalyptic setting with a large cast of morally grey characters doing terrible things to one another. I found it fascinating.

As good as any book I've read before (about agro-terrorism, androids and Thai culture).

Story: 4 / 10
Characters: 7
Setting: 10
Prose: 9

The Windup Girl started so well ... and there were so many reasons to read it: Hugo and Nebula award winner; and someone literally bought me a copy.

The unique, poetic prose and clever post-steampunk setting immerse the reader in the first few pages. The story starts off fairly strong with compelling characters and strange relationship dynamics. However, the plot loses direction in a web of tertiary story threads. At 33% completion, it was clear that the story was ultimately never going to come together. Since I'm reading through all the Nebula and Hugo award winning authors, I cannot honestly suggest you skip this book. Nevertheless, I would suggest reading one of Bacigalupi's later works: I imagine the stories would be more mature.

How Paolo Bacigalupi packed so much action and and so many great characters into a novel I read in one night is a mystery to me. When I was 85% done with this book, I thought there was no way he'd be able to wrap it up to my satisfaction. So many excellent characters that I want to know more about! So many possibilities for our hero's future! So much drama on the high seas! And, honestly, I might have super-loved Ship Breaker if it had been a little longer and I'd had my curiosity satisfied. Still, it was a very strong book.

My favorite things about it:

1. Hard to put down
2. Filled with insight into class issues ("swank" sounds so much better than "very rich person," right?)
3. Shows the consequences of environmental degradation without building the whole book around the mistakes made by past generations. I told Jeff that I pictured the world of this book kind of like the movie Waterworld, only much much better.

Biggest bummer:

I was left with so many unanswered questions. What's up with Tool? What's going to happen to Nailer and Pima? What's Pyce's next move? Will there be a sequel?!
