Reading: The Windup Girl


I’m reading an interesting SciFi book called The Windup Girl, by Paolo Bacigalupi. I think I originally saw it at Powell’s a few weeks ago, and then grabbed it at the library when I got back. I’ve been so busy that I’m not getting through it very quickly, but it’s a refreshing change from everything else I’ve been reading lately. The feel of the characters and setting reminds me of George Alec Effinger’s Marid, and the Budayeen.
