I love the way that Bacigalupi evocative word play when building plot and in revealing characters. He balances these two aspects very well. This short story is a little gem. However, I found this performance very distracting. It seemed almost a cold reading, the narrator rushing at times, and then pausing oddly.
I really enjoyed this book. The narrator was good and the story carried me briskly along, with sympathetic characters, and enough twists to keep me interested. I had been reading a lot of heavy texts recently and needed a palate cleanser. This was had just the right amount of humor and wit. I will definitely pursue the series further.
