The Water Knife
The Water Knife | Paolo Bacigalupi
WATER IS POWER Paolo Bacigalupi,New York Times best-selling author of The Windup Girl and National Book Award finalist, delivers a near-future thriller that casts new light on how we live todayand what may be in store for us tomorrow. The American Southwest has been decimated by drought. Nevada and Arizona skirmish over dwindling shares of the Colorado River, while California watches, deciding if it should just take the whole river all for itself. Into the fray steps Las Vegas water knife Angel Velasquez. Detective, assassin, and spy, Angel cuts water for the Southern Nevada Water Authority and its boss, Catherine Case, ensuring that her lush, luxurious arcology developments can bloom in the desert and that anyone who challenges her is left in the gutted-suburban dust. When rumors of a game-changing water source surface in Phoenix, Angel is sent to investigate. With a wallet full of identities and a tricked-out Tesla, Angel arrows south, hunting for answers that seem to evaporate as the heat index soars and the landscape becomes more and more oppressive. There, Angel encounters Lucy Monroe, a hardened journalist, who knows far more about Phoenixs water secrets than she admits, and Maria Villarosa, a young Texas migrant, who dreams of escaping north to those places where water still falls from the sky. As bodies begin to pile up and bullets start flying, the three find themselves pawns in a game far bigger, more corrupt, and dirtier than any of them could have imagined. With Phoenix teetering on the verge of collapse and time running out for Angel, Lucy, and Maria, their only hope for survival rests in one anothers hands. But when water is more valuable than gold, alliances shift like sand, and the only truth in the desert is that someone will have to bleed if anyone hopes to drink.From the Hardcover edition.

A genre that I had never heard of until last year is Cli-Fi, which is fiction related to climate change. I‘m interested in reading something from this genre, particularly as it had been 70 degrees several times this winter, which is unusual to say the least. The tagged book sounds interesting. #NewtoYouGenre #AuldLangReads

OriginalCyn620 I‘ve read one cli-fi and didn‘t enjoy it, but it was the particular book I chose, not the genre. I hope this one is better! 3d
WanderingBookaneer I liked this one a lot. 3d
MallenNC @WanderingBookaneer It sounds really good! 3d
MallenNC @OriginalCyn620 I think it would definitely matter about the book chosen. I don‘t like regular sci-fi except in very rare cases, and I think this would be the same. 3d

This book was a brutal but realistic look at how the fundamental resource of water becomes corporatized and exploited when it grows scarce. Cities wield the power of life and death by shutting down water lines, terrorists blow up dams to sow chaos, and journalists try and trace the muscle back to the source. Vivid characters.

A pretty good dystopian novel set near future with adult characters. The setting and events that unfold are realistic in light of the things happening in the SW of the US. It makes your pause to think how it could easily happen this way, a rather terrifying thought.

I live in CO and this book felt a little too close to.home with regards to what could happen in CO in say 10 years...

The ending felt a bit flat, rushed and left me without a clear ending. But overall the book was well done. The research around water rights both junior and senior waa well done. It was clear the author did a considerabke amount of work to ensure that this book was as close to the truth as possible

I am a huge fan of Paolo Bacigalupi, especially his book The Wind-Up Girl. The Water Knife explores a dystopian near future where water rights, corruption and violence determine who lives and who dies in the deserts of Nevada and Arizona. The subject matter is incredibly timely and well-imagined, the characters believable. The gruesome details of this world can be hard to stomach, but reflect reality in other desperate places today.

Everything I love in a sci-fi: realistic world-building, well-rounded and fleshed out characters, a page turner that is not for the weak. This was intense as hell, and I loved it. I will be reading all of this writer's work.

Okay, and listen: nothing bad happens to the dog. I feel that is a "spoiler" everyone is going to want. Plenty of horrifying and graphic torture, abuse, and murder of humans. But the dog is A-OK.

A Sci-Fi novel that feels disturbingly plausible. Following the collapse of several Southern states due to water shortages, each state becomes a sovereign power. Water is the highest prized commodity & power is inextricably linked to control of water resources. Water knives are company operatives using appalling tactics to cement & broaden company control of water resources. A grim look at unchecked corporate greed & environmental devastation.

Hooked_on_books Wow, does sound timely. Oregon would be fine! 😂 3y

Aaah, another Bacigalupi. The Windup Girl was one of the best sci-fi novels I‘ve read over the last decade, so I‘ve been eagerly awaiting his next adult SF work. (His young adult stuff has also been fantastic.) Bacigalupi‘s new one, The Water Knife, reminds me of early Gibson, but the playing field is the water-parched Southwest rather than the online world. Like The Windup Girl, it has a hard-hitting environmental theme. - Dave

This was the first book I read in 2017. It takes place in a future in which water is a commodity that is fought over by corporations and government. It has created a class system that is medieval in nature. It was both suspenseful and thought provoking.

Mehso-so

After years, perhaps decades, of intense drought, the states of these United States are essentially at war with each other over water rights. Water knives are the nefarious individuals that work for certain state govs (NV and CA) to cut off the rights of other state. This story is about one knife (Angel), a journalist documenting the desiccation of Phoenix, and the lengths we'll go to in order to survive.

Sweettartlaura Just so-so? I've had this on my TBR for a while... Keep it or drop it? 3y

There's an interesting article in The Guardian about the lack of main stream climate change fiction. Can you think of anything you've read that incorporated climate change that isn't sci fi or apocalyptic? I can't off the top of my head.

Tonton The Water Knife is a good one. 3y
saresmoore This makes me wonder if there can be a book about climate change that ISN'T apocalyptic...because, I mean... It makes me want to write it, though! 3y

outis Interesting article. I think Ghosh correctly calls out the almost knee-jerk labeling of most cli-fi as sci-fi rather than literary fiction, but I think he drops it into the "not serious" bucket too quickly. What about Gold Fame Citrus or The Things We Didn't See Coming (both of which get labeled as speculative or post-apocalyptic)? I'd also throw Not Dark Yet out there for consideration. (I liked The Water Knife, too.) 3y
outis @saresmoore I was wondering the same thing! 3y
bookwormmichelle Yes anything written about it will end up in sci-fi or at least spec fiction. A good recent one is Charlie Jane Anders' All the Birds in the Sky. 3y
Notafraidofwords This one talks a little bit about that: 3y
she_barks @outis gold fame citrus had so much potential, but as soon as it went down the crazy prophet path, it went into the not serious bucket for me. I would have loved to have seen more about Hollywood and the super wealthy facing the fallout of climate change. That's where I thought the book was going at first. 3y
she_barks @saresmoore Let us know when you write that book. I'll be first in line 😀. I think it should be possible to address climate change in scenarios other than the end of the world, at least indirectly. 3y
Titania I've not read it myself, but I think CJ Box's Below Zero has a global warming theme to it. He's definitely not sci fi. ;-) 3y
Starfish_Happiness The Last Hundred Years trilogy by Jane Smiley has some elements of climate change, especially the third book (Golden Age). The entire saga follows a family over a century in America, ending in our near future. Climate change is not the main plot, but it's in there if you're interested in a more mainstream portrayal. 3y
Zelma Definitely realistic and not apocalyptic. This one just came out. 3y
she_barks @Titania I'm slowly working my way through CJ Box's books, so I'll look forward to that one 3y
she_barks @Starfish_Happiness you're right! I had forgotten that. I think I even marked Golden Age as climate fiction on my goodreads list. That's a terrific example. 3y
kammartinez N.K. Jemisin's Broken Earth Trilogy (only two books out right now but 3rd book will come out next year) deals with a post-apocalyptic world that has gone through regular cycles of natural disasters, including climate-related ones. I think it qualifies as climate fiction because so much of the worldbuilding is about how cultures and morality change in the face of immense detrimental climate change. 3y
BookishClaire I think Ian McEwan's Sweet Tooth is supposed to be partly about that... 3y
