I reviewed this right after I read it, but apparently it only "took" on Amazon. Sorry.
I received "Perfect Copy" through the Indie Book Collective, with the promise of a review, so here goes:
"Perfect Copy" was fast moving and fairly interesting. I found the story involving and the characters realistic. It was a pleasant surprise to find that it was not a re-hash of the Kubrick/Spielberg movie, "A.I.". I liked the way that the author made the scientific aspect accessible for the average reader. As a mom, my heart went out to Roman from the beginning.
Despite all the positive aspects of the novel, though, here were serious issues with grammar, sentence structure, and word choice. A good, substantive editor would do a world of good for "Perfect Copy". I read widely (as well as writing and editing), in many genres, and these issues seem to crop up quite often in self-published romance and sci-fi manuscripts. Some scenes could stand with fleshing out, as well.
Bottom line: "Perfect Copy" had enough interesting matter in the story to make me keep reading, despite the technical shortcomings. With a good edit, this could be mainstream publishable. But until that edit is done, "Perfect Copy" is not.
