Book Review: Half Life by Lillian Clark


Book: Half Life by Lillian Clark

Genre: YA SF

Rating:  ★ ★ ★ 

This answers the question: What if you could have a clone of yourself? Then what?

Would you make her do all the stuff you don't want to do so you can go and party?

Would she not have feelings and desires of her own?

Would she know and think the exact same way you do?

What is truly the ethicality of such an idea?

In this crazy story, our girl is stressed about all the things she has to do, and also, she's just plain sick of her life, so when a company approaches her with a crazy idea, she decides to go for it.

And thus she finds herself going through all the processes of getting cloned. At first she thinks it's going to be awesome, but slowly she realizes that it's not really as great as it sounded to begin with.

The book is written in that once we have a clone of our character, we start seeing things from both points of view. We have Lucille, or original... and Lucy... our clone. And what an interesting way to solve a love triangle, eh? Just have the character clones, and BOTH boys get the girl! LOL!

So very crazy this story is!

And lots to think about. 

I really enjoyed it, though sometimes I still felt a bit distanced from this character, I don't know why. Anyway, for the most part it was really interesting.
