The Windup Girl – Review
An interesting read to start with, drops the reader straight into the near future world of a post oil civilisation, and the issues raised by this.
The main characters seem well constructed, and the plot moves at a nice pace. It is not quiet the action thriller page turner, but it is also not so slow that I want to put it down all the time. The chapters are a nice length, and allow for the reading of one or two before bed.
The characters while at times a feeling like they are simply filling a space, do have depth in parts. Some that comes out as the book goes on.
In general I’d say this is good read and worth looking up.
