Four stars. I really enjoyed this future world with it's melted polar ice caps, food shortages, brutal work environments,the mishmash of religions. Mostly I loved the people: Nailer, Nita , Sadna and Pima, Lucky Strike and Tool. A world where loyalty is hard- won and death is never far away, whether due to injury, disease, or starvation. I realize what an easy luxurious life I've had (even after a busy twelve hour day at work).

I just finished reading it and I'm really irked that my husband picked up The Drowned Cities while I was at work so I can't start reading it immediately. Drat!
