The Windup Girl

The Windup GirlThe Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi
My rating: 1 of 5 stars

It is very rare that I will not finish a book however this one has the distinction of being the first on this list. I usually love cyberpunk books. Apocalyptic fiction is one of my favorite genres however I feel nothing but ill will towards this book.

The author takes FOREVER to get to anything that resembles a plot. The “wind up girl” parts are graphically written for a cheap thrill and when you finally start taking an interest in the character (when she goes off the deep end) he changes characters YET AGAIN. By the point I read to I counted no less than 10 “main” characters.

I will not even try to finish this book.

Slightly sarcastic, scifi loving girl who just can't seem to get things right most days.
