The Drowned Cities by Paolo Bacigalupi

My Rating: ★★½


 

This book started out great. The first half was amazing in its own horrifyingly disturbing way. It was raw and it was perfect for it. I loved it.

However, the second part of the story was a jumble of too slow and too fast. It just didn’t flow as well as the first half of the book. The ending, I felt, was definitely lackluster.

After that wonderful first half, I was expecting so much more from this book and I just didn’t get it. I was so disappointed.


This book is not for people who are easily triggered.
