This review is from: Ship Breaker: Number 1 in series (Paperback)
If you read Paolo Bacigalupi's first novel, the excellent "The Windup Girl", you'll be expecting a gritty, violent and grown-up adventure, full of complex twists and turns. In fact this novel is aimed at a younger readership, so some of the nastier elements are missing, without diminishing the adventure. The hero is a teenager who has been forced to live a dangerous and adult life by dire poverty in which life is cheap, and often very short. A twist of fate brings him into close contact with another world, and his life is hanging by a thread throughout his adventures.
A very good read. Anyone who loved Harry Harrison's tales will enjoy this book.
