Clan- My Review:
Clan was an amazing sci fi book! It was definitely a new look at the genre, at least for me. Twain was a fascinating. So named by his protector because he 'deviated from the norm' is raised separately from the rest of the Clan because of his differences. He wants nothing more to join with the rest of Clan- clones of each other with no discernible differences other than name/ number. Of course, you come to realize that each clone has a different personality.
Every-time I thought I had the book figured out, I was taken in a completely different direction. This book is not easy to figure out.
To that end, there was quite a bit of world building. How did the clones come to me? Humans from Earth landed on the planet and wanted to create an earth like atmosphere without the war. This is an laudable gaol .
But there are interesting points about Clans with the same genetic material and lowered life span- would this case more deviations or are all deviations 'caused' by someone?,,
Also, it takes a very strong social and political foundation- without that a society like Clan would cease to exist.
By the ending i was so excited and nervous and surprised. It was not what I was anticipating at all! i love it when a book is able to end completely different than you expect and does it well. Clan does this and more. It is a solid addition to science fiction novels.
Clan by Realm Lovejoy
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
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.
