Bu kitapta ilginç baba / oğul ilişkileri. Ancak hikaye biraz yavaştı.
Nailer works as a ship breaker along the decimated Gulf Coast in a dystopian future devoid of oil. Nailer and his fellow crew of hardened orphans and urchins pick apart old ships in search of bits of copper, brass, and the ultimate scavenge, deposits of oil. His life is dangerous and hard, and his drug-addicted, abusive hustler of a father doesn't make it any easier. When Nailer stumbles upon a pocket of oil in an old tanker, he thinks that life may start to get better. However, when a brutal hurricane washes a luxurious clipper ship ashore, a scavenger's dream, Nailer knows that his luck really is about to change. It's not until he discovers a beautiful and wealthy passenger aboard that he begins to question what kind of luck that will be. Can Nita offer him a better life, or will she just lead him to unimaginable danger? The dystopian setting of a post-oil wasteland felt almost plausible, but the story focuses on such a narrow cross-section that you're really not given much background at all outside of Nailer's tiny perspective. But hey, that's the stuff that openers to dystopian trilogies are made of, eh? It's kind of sad that this formula that I used to find so exciting has become so predictable and dime-a-ddozen at this point....Book 1: The humble hero emerges and experiences tragedy in an unjust world, Book 2: The scope zooms out and we see the corrupt puppeteers behind it all, Book 3: The hero valiantly fights to BRING IT ALL DOWN! But I digress. Overall, I'd say this was pretty good, but I'm a bit surprised with the Printz win. I guess they HAD to choose a dystopian novel given the overbearing trend, but it wouldn't have been my choice over the others.
Not as great as the first two, but still left me excited to read the last one.
