Rezension: NAMED ONE OF THE BEST NOVELS OF THE YEAR BY "TIME", "PUBLISHERS WEEKLY", "LIBRARY JOURNAL", "LOCUS" AND THE AMERICAN LIBRARY ASSOCIATION

WINNER OF THE HUGO AWARD, THE NEBULA AWARD, THE LOCUS AWARD, THE COMPTON CROOK AWARD, AND THE CAMPBELL MEMORIAL AWARD

"It's ridiculous how good this book is. . . . Bacigalupi's vision is almost as rich and shocking as William Gibson's vision was in 1984 . . . I hope he writes 10 sequels."
--Lev Grossman, "TIME"

"Reminiscent of Philip K. Dick's Blade Runner.... densely packed with ideas
about genetic manipulation, distribution of resources, the social order, and
environmental degradation ... science fiction with an environmental message, but one that does not get in the way of its compelling story."
--"Sacramento Book Review"

"This complex, literate and intensely felt tale, which recalls both William Gibson and Ian McDonald at their very best ... clearly one of the finest science fiction novels of the year."
--"Publishers Weekly" (starred review)

"A captivating look at a dystopic future that seems all too possible. East meets
West in a clash of cultures brilliantly portrayed in razor-sharp images, tension-building pacing, and sharply etched characters."
--"Library Journal" (starred review)

"When it hits its sweet-spot, "The Windup Girl" embodies what SF does best of all: it remakes reality in compelling, absorbing and thought-provoking ways, and it lives on vividly in the mind."
--"The Guardian"

"Bacigalupi never slides into moralism or judgement ... Ultimately that's what makes this debut novel so exciting. It's rare to find a writer who can create such well-shaded characters while also building a weird new future world."
--"io9"
