The Wind Up Girl - The book I almost didn't like

I decided to read The Wind Up Girl after being drawn to the cover art every time I went to the bookstore. I finally pick it up a few months ago. Let me start by saying I'm somewhat of a prude when I read. I was automatically uncomfortable with the Wind Up Girl's situation and as the abuse escalated I was borderline disgusted. I persevered because the world Bacigalupi created was so detailed an interesting. Still, what kept me going was story line involving Kanya. Her story saves the book in my opinion. It's worth the read but it will probably be a while before I read another Bacigalupi book.
