What a fantastic read! This short book was equal parts thriller and sci-fi, and I loved every minute of it. I’ve avoided sci-fi in the past because I often find the details of the plot difficult to follow, but this book did not lose or confuse me like others have done in the past. I loved the evolution of the main characters—seeing them become both more confident/independent, while also becoming more comfortable relying on each other. The book made me think about what it means to be a wife, what it means to be a woman, and what it means to be human. It also focuses a lot on what is ethical in science/medicine, which is something that is very relevant to our reality. I don’t know much about genetics or cloning, but this book made me want to learn more. Gailey’s writing had my undivided attention throughout the book, and I am excited to read more of their work.
