In his latest novel, Bacigalupi leads readers into an all to plausible dystopian future where resources are scarce and the question on everyone's mind remains the same: what will happen when the water runs out? From would-be assassins, to journalists and Texas immigrants, everyone has a stake in the answer to this question. As the American Southwest continues to hemorrhage water and people become more desperate for dwindling resources, Bacigalupi plumbs the depths of humanity and emotional connections in a world that is increasingly predicated on the belief of every man for himself. ~ Reviewed by Cheryl Cornwell
