The Water Knife | Paolo Bacigalupi

This awesome cli-fi thriller has me feeling parched and makes me want to drink as much water as I can while it‘s around. In the future the western states are playing spy games with who gets water. They‘re allowed to throw up borders. Texans are now climate refugees who are killed by neighboring states because they don‘t want to deal with them. This was soooo good. The characters are likable but none of them are clean. A pick! 2 comments👇🏼

Reggie 1. There is a moment where I had to put my kindle down because if this girl died I just didn‘t want to read about it. It was so tense. 2. There was a sex scene in here and it wasn‘t explicit but it still bothered me because there‘s a water shortage and here these people are losing fluids. But yolo, I guess. Lol it was great book. 4mo

Reggie @Deblovestoread Thanks! I hope you like it if you get to it. 3mo
Reggie @SamAnne Aside from climate change I think the importance of journalism is big in here. Have you ever read Rising: Dispatches from the new North American Shore by Elizabeth Rush. I think you‘d like it. It‘s nonfiction but when they were blowing up the dams in here it made me think about how Louisiana has landloss not only to the rising of water but the silt that usually made it‘s way down there from the Mississippi doesn‘t make it to the delta (edited) 3mo
Reggie because of all the dams on the river. And California is removing dams from that one river recently to try and rewild it. Lots of stuff going on. 3mo
BarbaraBB Oow this sounds terrifying good! 3mo
SamAnne @Reggie I‘ve not read that one! I worked for a couple decades on dam removal and read a lot on the subject. I obsessively follow the news on Lake Powell and the Colorado. I loved in Water Knife how the woman running NV was so closely based on the woman who is the water manager for Las Vegas. As the old Earth First bumpersticker says: Nature Bats Last. 3mo
SamAnne @Reggie also—have you read his previous book The Wind Up Girl? Set in Bangkok years into rising sea level crisis. Also includes some uncomfortable sex scenes! 3mo
Aimeesue Great review! I read a NF book about water usage this year that terrified me. But I also found out that I live in one of the few places in the US where the water treatment plants actually reuse ALL the water. Most places don‘t because of the ick factor. (edited) 3mo
Reggie @Aimeesue Thanks. He has a list of books in the back he said gave inspiration and there was one a lot of his characters in the book owned which is called Cadillac Desert by Marc Reisner that I want to look up. I just put The Big Thirst on hold on Libby. Thanks for the rec. 3mo
Aimeesue @Reggie I‘ll check that one out! 3mo

Suet624 Definitely sounds like a thriller. I can see it all coming to pass. 3mo

The illustrations in this book were so beautiful and I think they even helped the words speak louder. Everything about this book is so powerful.

I love this book because it teaches the audience about real life. Not only does it talk about culture but about water. I think it is so important to teach kids about culture especially the indigenous people because we don't often know much about their lives.

This can be used to introduce a lesson about water or the states of matter. The book does explain in simple terms what the different states of matter are and examples of them. The book seems to be meant for 5- 8 year olds.

Mehso-so

This is a simple, easy-to-follow nonfiction book. Each page has only five or so words on it. It is nonfiction because the book provides examples of the different forms that water could be in. And, it talks about how to conserve water.
