i recently finished the windup girl by Paolo Bacigalupi.

Really brilliant premise. post apocalyptic future where calories are currency and "clean" strands of plants/food without infection/mutation are worth fortunes to those who hold them and are able to feed their population. Add to that a sentient sex doll who aims to please, and you have a background with huge potential. Unfortunately the author made a complete hatchet job of the second half of the book, and what starts out great, ends as a bit of a damp squib.
