review 1: Panečku, to bola jazda! Oproti Prachožroutom veľký posun, už by som knihu asi ani nezaradila medzi YA. V istých ohľadoch veľmi surové, veľmi hlboké a tiež dosť akčné a napínavé! Keď sa zdalo, že už už skĺzne k nude, stalo sa niečo, čo ma vytrhlo z letargie a donútilo takmer prest...

review 1: Paolo Bacigalupi has recently become one of my favorite authors. He creates this magnificent worlds that full of magic and wonder and so very well developed. I was little unsure of this story with an additional author unknown to me (sorry Tobias Buckell). But I shouldn't have wo...

review 1: This is, as you can see from the cover, not a deep serious book. It's about three teens who find out that their local meat packing plant has created a zombie viral element, and is ignoring all logic (and laws) and using those tainted cows anyway for human consumption. This is a...

review 1: The Doubt Factory is an exciting page turner, that also gets you thinking about our legal system and how it can be manipulated.Alix leads a pretty normal life, for a rich teenager. She attends a private school, has some friends, and her home life is pretty normal even though her ...

review 1: Not sure if apart from this book and "The Executioness" by Tobias Buckell, this universe is further explored, but it was simply captivating. Whenever magic is used, an ivy-like plague grows in the world, kingdoms have been lost, and magic is now forbidden to all but those approve...

review 1: I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of stories. Bacigalupi has an impressive imagination, creating a multitude of bleak alternate universes in which his characters operate. For me there were a few standouts here: Pop Squad, in which immortality is a reality and breeding is illeg...

review 1: Creepy and depressing. If you want to read something that leaves you somewhat nauseated and simultaneously makes you despair of any hope for humanity, this is it. I finished it, hoping to find something redeeming at the end, but no. This dystopia was just too bleak for me. I ...

review 1: Awesome world building, literally mind blowing. I didn't really catch any info-dumping at all, and the entire world was constructed in a way that felt very natural and organic, even though the world itself was a total disaster area. Oh, and I loved the language the characters use...

review 1: I enjoyed reading The Ship Breakers, so was looking forward to reading the next book set in the same future Earth. But I can't honestly say that I enjoyed The Drowned Cities, mostly because the originality of the first book has been replaced by a rather drear post-apocalyptic wa...

review 1: Ok, the whole zombie thing doesn't do much for me, so I was surprised at how much I liked this book! Rabi, Miguel and Joe are typical 13-year-old boys and best buds. When a horrible smell in their town leads the boys to the local Iowa meat packing plant, they are horrified to f...

review 1: While I feel it unfair to simply compare this book to its counterpart (“The Executioness” by Tobias S. Buckell) I must say I felt more connected to this one and therefore enjoyed it more. I was able to understand the characters, I felt their emotions and resonated with their tri...

review 1: The Alchemist shares a world with Tobias Buckell's The Executioness. It's obvious that these two authors, both masters of world building, had a lot of fun collaborating on this world of forbidden magic, bramble, and deadly politics because it is the strongest part of both storie...

review 1: Having read several of his books, I was interested in seeing how much of his style carried over into his short stories and was not disappointed. The same inventiveness, lyricism, intrigue, and a kind of hopeful misery are pervasive throughout. Several of the stories are obvious p...

review 1: Harrowing, haunting - this book excels at bridging the cerebral and the visceral in images of possible futures. The theme of poisoned lands, physical transformation, and systems of survival runs throughout, but the images linger and cling, they get under my skin and I find myself...

review 1: With few exceptions, an excellent collection. 'Pocketful of Dharma', 'The Fluted Girl', 'The People of Sand and Slag' offer fresh and curious views on transhumanism, lacking the power fantasies typical of this theme.'The Calorie Man', 'The Tamarisk Hunter', 'Small Offerings', to ...

review 1: The Windup Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi has garnered much press as being one of the best Sci-Fi novels of 2009 but I have also read several reviews who feel it did not live up to their expectations. I can see why as this is not the easiest story to get absorbed into and enjoy. Initia...

review 1: I enjoyed this book, liked the writing style, and had fun mentally walking through the world created by the author. However, the title of the book is "The Windup Girl". I expected this windup girl to be featured more in the story, but large chunks of it went by without her pre...
