'Ship Breaker' Chapters 19 - end: Discuss!

We're into the last week of the book, so everything's fair game at this point. If you've finished, what did you think? Also, if you're still interested, The Drowned Cities continues at least one of the threads from Ship Breaker, and The Windup Girl and Paolo Bacigalupi's anthology Pump Six tell other stories from the post-Accelerated Age (Decelerated Age? Global Warming Hell?)
