I ve spent a grand portion of my life living in the desert so I ve always been aware of water issues but honestly this novel freaked me out with just how bad things have gotten in this near future SF I mean this is really all about the fate of whole cities and the struggle for every single person to survive the collapse when there just isn t enough to drink I kept reaching for my water every few seconds just to make sure that I was okayTruly This is really good for what it is Thriller dystopia commentary on human nature with things get really bad Sure It s all of that But do you know what it is reallyIt s a western Not only that it s a good westernFuture SF absolutely but it has all the makings of some of the best westerns I ve ever watched on TV Who s the white hat who s the black hat watching the sharp as roles and situations reverse the realization that you might have been rooting for the wrong guys and possibly the wrong revealsI had a really good time reading this It s not for the faint of heart or the dehydrated although if you do want to add a little realism to your read then by all means STOP DRINKING Do you feel that headache coming on the slightly euphoric sense of desperation Amplify itThe novel might also be a commentary on water rights and the crazy lengths that anyone will go to secure them when water becomes precious than gold but than that it s a classic western worthy of Sergio Leone

Paolo Bacigalupi ó 8 Free read Free read ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ó Paolo Bacigalupi Read The Water Knife Ung Texas migrant who dreams of escaping north to those places where water still falls from the sky As bodies begin to pile up and bullets start flying the three find themselves pawns in a game far bigger corrupt and dirtier than any of them could have imagined With Phoenix teetering on the verge of collapse and time running out for Angel Lucy and Maria their only hope for survival rests in one another’s hands  But when water is valuable than gold alliances shift like sand and the only truth in the desert is that someone will have to bleed if anyone hopes to drink From the Hardcover editi. It s almost impossible for me to review Bacigalupi Check my other reviews you ll see The Windup Girl Pump Six and Other Stories the only one I did justice to was Ship Breaker his YA book In a nutshell it s because once I am out of his world I really don t want to go back in I work rather hard at maintaining both knowledge and optimism without thought of moral dessert someone finally just watched The Good Place and Bacigalupi sends me right into the pit of despair and not the good kind with an albino with a cold Here s whyLife all around her Struggling and surging and trying so very hard to survive in the face of all the horrors the world had to offer On this ragged edge she was aliveShe d come to Phoenix to see a place dying but she d stayed for the living Trying to divine something meaningful from this place s suffering What does a place that falls apart look like What did it mean NothingIt doesn t mean anythingIt just tells me how badly I want to liveI persevered reading because out of his adult books this one had the most hope ha A relative term But there is environmental devastation purposeful destruction casual cruelty deliberate cruelty poverty prostitution torture mutilation and even the sex is masochism And no one really gets just desserts and no one is really magically saved It s like the worse possible version of the world Which is indeed the world but without the leavening of hope positivism or vision There is a little compassion in here which most genuinely oh shit I just realized might be from a magical Negro Damn it There s a line from somewhere not here certainly about how the mirror someone holds up shows us the version that makes us want to cut our hearts out That s what Bacigalupi does here but the way he does it seems also to hold up the worst version of himself Really read Jennifer s excellent review What she saidTechnically probably a four star book in uality fast plotting world building word smithing much less in enjoyment I don t think I can rate this one at the moment I ll probably keep my hard copy for awhile but I m definitely ditching The Windup Girl Many thanks to Jennifer for motivating me to get this off my TBR list

Paolo Bacigalupi ó 8 Free read Free read ↠ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ó Paolo Bacigalupi Read The Water Knife WATER IS POWER   Paolo Bacigalupi  New York Times best selling author of The Windup Girl and National Book Award finalist delivers a near future thriller that casts new light on how we live today and what may be in store for us tomorrow The American Southwest has been decimated by drought Nevada and Arizona skirmish over dwindling shares of the Colorado River while California watches deciding if it should just take the whole river all for itself Into the fray steps Las Vegas water knife Angel Velasuez Detective assassin and spy Angel “cuts” water for the Southern Nevada Water Authority. As with Brave New World I think I m inviting insults to my intelligence by saying this but sometimes Mr Bacigalupi is just a little too heavy for meI really like and appreciate what the author tries to do both the strength of his writing and his focus on the dystopian but not unrealistic futures that could occur due to climate change I enjoyed The Windup Girl and I especially loved The Drowned Cities The latter was such a powerful and horrifying book about the effects of war particularly on kidsThere were things about The Water Knife that I can and will praise highly Things that made me want to thrust it into the hands of anyone who bothers to listen to my recommendationsAnd then there are passages like this Numbers flickering over the various catchment basins of the Rocky Mountains red amber green monitoring how much snow cover remained and variation off the norm as it melted Other numbers displaying the depths of reservoirs and dams from the Blue Mesa Dam on the Gunnison to the Navajo Dam on the San Juan to the Flaming Gorge Dam on the Green Over it all emergency purchase prices on streamflows and futures offers scrolled via NASDA available open market purchase options if she needed to recharge the depth in Lake Meadthat made me thinkYou see whatever kind of pretty label we try to dress Bacigalupi s books up in like dystopian post apocalyptic or steampunk the truth is that he writes old fashioned hard sciencey science fiction It seems wrong to criticize the guy just for being so much smarter than me but his freuent descriptions of the climate water scarcity and its economic impact had me completely lost and made the book so slow at times I had flashbacks to when I was in college and had to write an essay on the water wars between India and PakistanThe reason I probably don t fall in love with a lot of traditional sci fi is because I like people based stories Even the most inventive of plot ideas can leave me feeling cold if I don t give a damn who it s happening to Which is actually why I still really enjoyed a lot of this book When we re not learning about the environment we get to meet some damn interesting charactersThis is a world where water shortages have given rise to the water euivalent of drug lords and the spiesterrorists who work for them water knifes Angel Velasuez is one of the best and baddest water knifes and he s been sent to Phoenix to investigate the rumours of a new water source But he s going to have to get past Lucy Monroe a strong and badass character who I liked immediatelyIn fact the author has created some fascinating characters here His action scenes are perfectly constructed his dialogue is realistic and a pleasure to read He adds just the right amount of grit and creep factor to a few chapters that had me on the edge of my seat It s just a shame that roughly half of this book was a struggle to get through The fact that I kept pushing through the mind numbing bits to get to the good stuff should tell you how much I thought it was worth itBlog Facebook Twitter Instagram Tumblr
