Everything is possible in Paolo Bacigalupi's The Fluted Girl. All you ever wanted is here, but it all has a price, and often the physical cost is way too steep. Cell knitters, Revitia treatments, and stolen body parts improve all aspects of the human body. And in Bacigalupi's decadent future world, the goal of all this is simply to enhance one's social standing.
Enter twin girls into this world of capitalistic dreams. With a lifetime of treatments behind them, they are now ready to take to the stage as human flutes in a performance that should delight everyone - everyone, that is, except the twins.
From the moment Shondra Marie's voice submerses you in this world, you will dread the final outcome. This is a tale that lingers well after the hour is up, and you are well advised to re-play it, just to catch all the hints and tricks Bacigalupi uses in making this such a moving tale.
