The Windup Girl

The Windup Girl - Paolo Bacigalupi I really enjoyed this book.The future world that Bacigalupi creates is full of life and details and technologies that are plausible and functional. The main characters are believable, and have flaws that make them interesting.The only reason that I cannot give it five stars is that I thought that the plot was not that strong. Whilst it was complex, it didn't have the twist I was hoping for.
