I finished it as soon as i could, and was satisfied with the ending.

Positive Review

Glad the mur lafferty did and if you grab this one you will too.

Positive Review

The novel starts out with the statement of the international law regarding the codicils to govern the existence of clones.

Negative Review

The real value of this book is the take on what a clone is and how society changes with the prevalence of cloning humans.

Neutral Review

Everyone is harboring dangerous secrets, and with the outlawed technology of mind-hacking in the mix, no one is entirely above suspicion.

Neutral Review

Shipping


Throw in an ai that runs the ship who has been hacked, and you have one of the most entertaining scifi novels that i've read in years.

Positive Review

The ship is programmed to return to earth and no one knows why.

Negative Review

There's more here than just what's going on in the ship.

Neutral Review

It all becomes unnecessary when we learn what “crimes” they committed to get them on the ship.

Neutral Review

Packaging/appearance


We learn about each character's crime, what their motivations are, and how they got to be on the crew of the dormire.

I kept one star back to reflect the unimpressive english writing, but for those who may not care about style as much as i do, i...  Read More

    I would have given the book a “5”, but the ending was very rushed.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    And the speculation of a type of clone existence was more than plausible.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The cloning technology and the many ethical options are a background that is integral to the story.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    One of the clones wakes up in a cloning vat (more on that in a bit as well) to find that her most recent self, as well as the rest of the recent selves of the crew, have been murdered.

    To complete the mystery, the ai, ian, is also malfunctioning.

    The novel starts out with the statement of the international law regarding the codicils to govern the existence of clones.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    While essentially an infodump, and one to start off the novel rather than it appearing later on, the codicils are important to the story and it's a good thing to have them right up front, as clones, cloning, and the ethics and morality of cloning are key elements in the story.
