    Everything is possible in Paolo Bacigalupi's "The Fluted Girl". All you ever wanted is here, but it all has a price, and often the physical cost is way too steep. Cell knitters, Revitia treatments, and stolen body parts improve all aspects of the human body. And in Bacigalupi's decadent future world, the goal of all this is simply to enhance one's social standing.

    Story

    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.

    Story
    (30)

    A "financial wizard" entrusted with the savings of nearly half the retirees of Vigata mysteriously disappears with the money and a young man who worked for him. In a rather atypical case for Montalbano, the inspector finds himself initially shut out of the investigation by the ever hostile commissioner Bonetti-Alderighi, and forced to work from the shadows.

    Story

    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.
