The Drowned Cities by Paolo Bacigalupi
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This post-eco-disaster world is really starting to grow on me. More worldbuilding, more warrior-bois getting played for chumps even as they crap on everyone, and the cool focus on half-men make it a pretty interesting novel, all told.
And I really enjoyed the main characters a lot more than in the previous book. There is that.
I won't say this is a particularly ground-breaking story, but it was rather enjoyable and the payoffs are everything that you might expect. Survival, loss, getting stuck in a hell-hole, trying to find each other in horrible odds. You know. Adventure. :)
Still worth the read.
