‘The Windup Girl’ by Paolo Bacigalupi

‘Didn’t Get Into It’
Score: 2/5

Paolo Bacigalupi

I just didn’t really get into this book enough to enjoy it. The book won the Hugo and Nebula awards, so I’m perfectly happy to chalk this one up to me being weird.

The long, dense blocks of text put me off. I know the author wants to create a vivid tapestry, a rich setting for scenes, but it didn’t work for me here. And instead of sympathy for the characters, I mostly felt apathy or disdain.

Ah well. I’m not saying it’s a bad book, it looks like it’s just not my kind of thing.
