The Windup Girl

The Windup Girl - Paolo Bacigalupi Ideas are really what drive this book and make it interesting. Overall, I enjoyed the book but I listened to it on Audible rather than reading it. I think if I had read it that I would have found the writing more distracting than I did. The author did a good job of making sympathetic the characters in the book who were considered disposable to the rest of their society but I would have liked to have spent more time with Emiko and her kind than we ended up spending with other characters who were far less sympathetic.
