    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.

    Marius says: "Al Gore nightmare meets Blade Runner."

    Story

    An incredible, absorbing reading of a fascinating book. I can't add much more to what others have said, except to note that this is what one wishes William Gibson had evolved into. But the reading is the best I've heard on Audible, even better than Solaris, which was also very good.

    Also, I'm not sure if it's noted anywhere but there are some graphic scenes of sexual abuse. Not that you'd think it was a children's book, but a little intense even for adults.
