Clan Book Review


 
I have a really good book to share with you today called Clan written by Realm Lovejoy and it's very Science Fiction oriented so you will have to love reading this type of book. I thought it had a little bit of Fantasy to it, but that is just my opinion.
 
Synopsis:
Clans are Unity.

No variation. No deviation.

On Clades, to be a Clan is to be an exact copy. A perfect society cloning themselves to survive, even as the zombielike Frags threaten to overrun them on an unforgiving planet.

Clan 1672 (privately known as Twain) was never supposed to survive the Incubation Tank. But he did. Illegally. He is different from the other Clans.

A secret that could destroy him.
Wow, like I said, I thought this was a VERY GOOD book. But, I love this type of story. To me it was part Fantasy, part Science Fiction. Some might say it was pure Science Fiction. But, because the story had a surreal quality to it, I thought it was more along the lines of Fantasy. I sure do hope that nothing like that could ever actually happen, but the far future is beyond our imagination and thankfully, I will be long dead before this type of thing is even possible, I think.

It's really a unique story and the author really has a great imagination to think up something like this, but it would be awful to live on a planet where everyone is cloned and they unfortunately, only have one species, the male to clone, so all of the clones are males that look like just one man. So, all these babies are born and raised all look the same. They make them dress in the same clothes, no colors, all have the same haircut and they are not given names, just numbers.

But, the evil behind way this was all done, is just too horrible to even imagine that it actually came from the people and scientist's from Earth! When they revealed the truth towards the end of the story, I just wanted to say, no! It really is a heartless plan and I hope it never comes down to that in order for the Earth to survive.

If you love Fantasy or Science Fiction, then this book will be right up there as one of your favorites. I would even say it can be classified as a Thriller because it is a suspenseful mystery with a lot of danger and death.

The key to the whole downfall of this society will rest with three clones who take on the whole idea and try to discover the truth before it's too late for them all.

Happy Reading!
