Paolo Bacigalupi / The Water Knife / Riveting Near Future Thriller

Paolo Bacigalupi owns our near future
It started with The Windup Girl
Along came his YA hit Ship Breaker
He has my undivided attention
Again in YA I devoured The Drowned Cities
Now another Adult SF The Water Knife, WoW

Bacigalupi is really hitting his stride
As the title suggests
It's all about the water
Who has the rights
What people are willing to do

The landscape and lives being lived
Lush or Bleak
There is no middle ground to speak of

With the current drought in South West
He placed the action right where it is
Action there is, lots of it
The pages fly

The characters
People to invest in
People to cheer for
Don't miss the new one
Don't miss any of the above

Béla Fleck & Abigail Washburn
