Fans of dystopias will enjoy the grim future painted by Bacigalupi: the oceans have risen, oil has become scarce, and the rift between the rich and the poor has turned into a gaping chasm that has swallowed up the middle-class. There’s great world-building and characters that are thought-provoking, but those just looking for fast-paced action won't be disappointed.
