The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi made Time Magazine’s list of this year’s 10 best fiction novels, ranked number 9.
Reviewer Lev Grossman hits on everything I admired about as much of the novel as I read. However, I quit in the middle of a graphic description of the title character being sexually abused when I found myself wondering – is this my idea of entertainment? I decided it was not.
