Review by: Trinity on Nov. 08, 2012 :
Interesting concepts in these short stories. Sci fi writing may seem unrealistic to most people, however there is a strong possibility that in the near future those with heaps of money will be able to buy a cloned replica of themselves. Gosh! what's happening? Is that what life is really about, working your life away and having cloned children? Seems a bit weird and scary, don't you think?

Review by: Elfwreck on March 12, 2012 :
Some interesting concepts being played with, and good character interactions, but overall a bit flat. The stories all seem to assume modern USAn-esque nuclear-family structures as the norm, and the clone stories are variants of that. They're good stories--just not particularly mind-expanding.

I'd recommend this to people who haven't read much science fiction but would like to try some, but don't want to be overwhelmed by a genre laden with complex tropes.

Enjoyable to read; I just kept waiting for the weird scifi to kick in, and it didn't. Instead, these are somewhat like stories that modern-day TV shows involving clones might be.

One of the best stories I have EVER read here on smashwords. I could not stop reading! The different perspectives, the delightful personal aspects each story contained and the fantastic writing absorbed me completely. I will certainly be sharing this link on my Facebook wall and everywhere else I can because this book NEEDS to be read since it has something for everyone. Great job!
