There, he encounters Emiko. Emiko is the Windup Girl, a strange and beautiful creature. One of the New People, Emiko is not human; she is an engineered being, crèche-grown and programmed to satisfy the decadent whims of a Kyoto businessman, but now abandoned to the streets of Bangkok. Regarded as soulless beings by some, devils by others, New People are slaves, soldiers, and toys of the rich in a chilling near future in which calorie companies rule the world, the oil age has passed, and the side effects of bio-engineered plagues run rampant across the globe. What happens when calories become currency? What happens when bio-terrorism becomes a tool for corporate profits, when said bio-terrorism's genetic drift forces mankind to the cusp of post-human evolution?

A little at first, and then more--until whole cities are dragged down under tangling vines and empires lie dead, ruins choked by bramble forest. Monuments to people who loved magic too much"--Publisher's description on jacket flap

Cuchillo de agua by Paolo Bacigalupi( file )
1 edition published in 2016 in Spanish and held by 0 libraries worldwide
Una escalofriante aventura futurista que arroja nueva luz a nuestra forma de vivir, Cuchillo de agua es la primera novela adulta de Paolo Bacigalupi después de la aclamadísima, multipremiada e internacionalmente exitosa La chica mecánica. LÉELA ANTES DE QUE LA REALIDAD SUPERE LA FICCIÓN. Cuando el río Colorado se seca, el sur de Estados Unidos se convierte en el escenario desértico de una guerra por el agua. En un futuro no muy lejano, tras siglos de sobreexplotación, el río Colorado está secándose. La catástrofe obliga a miles de ciudadanos a emigrar a zonas más fértiles de Estados Unidos, pero los estados deciden construir barreras para impedir la marea de refugiados que se les viene encima. A medida que la sequía se extiende y se prolonga, el campo y las ciudades se convierten en páramos sin ley, presas de especuladores que empiezan a comerciar con la desesperación de los seres humanos. En medio de esta desalmada guerra por el agua, el mercenario Angel Velasquez está al servicio de un poderoso cártel que busca nuevos acuíferos. Siguiendo su cometido se cruza con la curtida periodista Lucy Monroe, quien conoce de primera mano el peligro de saber demasiado, y con la joven Maria, hija de un inmigrante mexicano que sueña con escaparse al norte, donde dicen que la tierra sigue poblada de lagos y aún cae agua del cielo. Con la ciudad de Phoenix viniéndose abajo, no queda más remedio que depender los unos de los otros para sobrevivir. Aun así, en un escenario donde el agua vale más que el oro, las alianzas resultan tan movedizas como la arena. La opinión de la crítica: Épico... Visionario. Publishers Weekly Un thriller espectacular, brillantemente imaginado y escrito, que te hará reflexionar mientras lo devoras. Lee Child Una mezcla entre Chinatown y Mad Max. NPR Un thriller que va más allá del género... Bacigalupi entreteje acción trepidante con temas de actualidad. Los Ángeles Times Las páginas se pasan prácticamente solas en una trama tensa, llena de traiciones y dobles traiciones, a la que unos personajes fascinantes añaden mayor profundidad. Library Journal Bacigalupi imagina con gran realismo los aterradores detalles de cómo el mundo podría sufrir una sequía de dimensiones catastróficas. Kirkus Reviews El apocalipsis que imagina Bacigalupi te hará reflexionar como ningún otro. The Wall Street Journal
