Book is about an island where closes are raised. Skylar escapes and (miraculously) finds Jude in NYC. The entire plot is eventually exposed. Not the best written book, preachy when educating the reader about cloning and more issues then is worth the time to list. Only about 100 pages of the book are worthwhile... ( )

A multilated body. Face and fingerprints have been removed. Coin-sized circle carved into his upper thigh. A colony with with its own laws have been thriving for thirty years. One man excapes and the hero of this novel finds him. When he looks at him, he sees himself. The man has his face. Now both of them are on the run. as they search for the mystery of their birth. Eerie, chilling book. ( )

The concept itself is brilliant, but I wondered the whole time why the scientists gave the clones lives. Couldn’t things have been better managed by keeping the clones in some kind of stasis, like a coma? Maybe the organs or whatever wouldn’t have been as viable that way, but it seems like they would be to me. But if that were the case, we wouldn’t have had this novel.

The writing is a bit stilted sometimes and the characters sometimes behave with incredible stupidity, but overall it's an enjoyable, light read. ( )
