Ship Breaker (Ship Breaker, #1)
Jan 17, 2011
Bacigalupi gets an A for world-building. As post-apocalyptic teen adventure stories go, this one takes place in a world that feels like it could actually be a real place, much like parts of the industrialized but slum-filled Global South today. The characters are interesting, but no one sticks with you like, say, Katniss Everdeen. The climax suffers a little from the action not being driven by the main character. Like every YA book published these days, this is the first in a series. Didn't blow me away, but good enough to pick up the next one.
