This would make an amazing movie! ( )

This is definitely one of my favorite dystopias. I found it original. The world is fascinating and I wanted to know more about the ship breaking itself but I also loved the other part of the story where we got glimpses as to what America is like after the "city killers." I thought Nailer was a very likable and believable main character. Bacigalupi also did a wonderful job of developing the side characters. This is my first time reading Bacigalupi but I am positive I'll be picking up more of his stuff soon. I hear The Wind Up Girl is amazing and I think it might be in my future soon. ( )

When they reach New Orleans , Nailer's father kidnaps her, Nailer then sets out to save her. ( )

Before starting this I'd read some reviews that stated the first half was dull, some saying it was tedious and only marginally improved in the closing, yet some others saying it was excellent.

So going in my expectations weren't particularly high, however I was pleased to find I was in the latter camp. The beginning of the book paints a harsh dystopian world where the community survives by risking life and limb dismantling old ships in a manner that would make occupational health & safety managers faint.

This world it paints is harsh, competitive and unforgiving. Then as events unfolds we learn that outside of this community not everyone is doing it so tough, that in fact there is extreme wealth inequality. This is driven home when the protagonist, Nailer, stumbles upon a recently wrecked ship filled with a fortune in salvage, and so the story takes off as he encounters a living member of the crew.

I enjoyed the story and thought the touch of realism added by using a potential future scenario should human environmental damage go unchecked was and added bonus, I particularly enjoyed the closing chase on the clipper ships and felt the ending brought the book to a nice close whilst leaving plenty of opportunities for the story to expand in the following book.

Bacigalupi is a highly acclaimed adult sci-fi writer, and Ship Breaker won last year's prestigious Printz award for young-adult fiction in the US. It's a taut, disciplined novel, moving with tremendous coiled energy and urgency. I found it a tad colourless in places, but Nailer is a fine hero, complicated and questioning, always wondering whether he's doomed to inherit his father's failings or whether he can make his own destiny.

Which is, of course, the essential question of every dystopia. And basically the essential question of every teenager, too. Why do teenagers like dystopias? Simple. They're looking for proof that there's a way to survive the one in which they're already living.

The blood bond was nothing. It was the people that mattered. If they covered your back, and you covered theirs, then maybe that was worth calling family. Everything else was just so much smoke and lies. (p. 274)
