The Windup Girl has won and been nominated for several awards. The author has come up with a good premise for a futuristic story. Some of the things he writes about are starting to happen today. Food manipulation, robots to take the place of workers, world political corruption.
It was a pretty good read, a little slow in the middle, but a rousing end. He left the ending open just enough that he can write a sequel.
For me it was a one time read, but every once in awhile it's fun to see what another persons view of the future is.
