Interesting read! This story takes place in "the future", in England in a world where cloned "individuals" are raised in isolation and sent out into their world to be "carers" and "donors". This is not a story about the cloning process, but it is more a book about what could happen in a world where cloning has become a normal procedure. It is not a story of what is going on with the people who are cloned; instead, it is the story of how the clones themselves might live in a world where they are basically created as a means to an end. The remarkable thing about this story are the parallels between the "clone" world and our own world. The author takes this controversial subject, cloning, and explores it not in a sci-fi, thriller, kind of way, but in a tender kind of way that gets the reader to emotionally relate to the characters. This would be a great book for book clubs!
