Review of The Water Knife by Paolo Bacigalupi

Pros: Clever concept, good characters, unpredictable ending

Cons: Some corny dialog, the romantic plot is pretty ham-fisted

This is a decent page-turner I read over the summer. The general plot that America is running out of water and states are using a combination of legal challenges and threats of force against each other is awesome... and possibly predictive of our not-so-distant future. Sometimes the book falls into corny action-adventure land, but generally it's pretty clever and fun to read.

I paid $9.99
