Jack is a walking fossil. The only human among a sea of clones. It’s been hundreds of years since humanity died off in the slow plague, leaving the clones behind to carry on human existence. Over time they’ve perfected their genes, moving further away from the imperfections of humanity. But if they really are perfect, why did they create Jack?
longs for acceptance, Althea-310 struggles with the feeling that she’s
different from her sisters. Her fascination with Jack doesn’t help. As
Althea and Jack’s connection grows stronger, so does the threat to their
lives. What will happen if they do the unthinkable and fall in love?
Got this through Bookish First. Let's see if it's any good!
Well that was short and sweet and not what I was hoping =(
thought the summary of the book sounded great! You have one human and
all of these clones, but I guess I'm in the unpopular opinion catagory
as it didn't work for me.
I liked Jack and Althea-310 to a
certain extent. I liked the ending of the story and I liked when they
read all of the stuff in the journal that told stories about the clones.
I didn't like anything else =( But it seems most people did and I'm happy for them =)
There was too much of Jack and another clone fighting all of the time. (Jack is the human)
I didn't like the pairing ritual of the clones. It was weird with them being kids and paired up to have sex with each other.
I loved the idea of the story but it fell flat for me and that's all there is to it.
I hope more people love it though!
