    Anderson Lake is a company man, AgriGen's Calorie Man in Thailand. Under cover as a factory manager, Anderson combs Bangkok's street markets in search of foodstuffs thought to be extinct, hoping to reap the bounty of history's lost calories. There, he encounters Emiko...Emiko is the Windup Girl, a strange and beautiful creature. One of the New People, Emiko is not human; instead, she is an engineered being, creche-grown and programmed to satisfy the decadent whims of a Kyoto businessman.

    Overall

    As I got deeper and deeper into this awful book it I kept wondering why I disliked it so much. Finally I figured it out. Its impossible to care about any of the characters. All were either thoroughly dislikable or completely forgettable. Two thirds through the book I realized I could care less what happened to any of them. Save your money and save your time.
