Your One & Only
This story is a thought-provoking and powerful story of survival. Jack is a human in a world of clones created when humans were on the brink of extinction. As humans were wiped out by a plague, a small group of scientists preserved their DNA and created clones that continually “improved” themselves as they created more and more generations of clones. 300 years later, Vispera is a seemingly “perfect” world of order with a strong sense of community and purpose yet lacking “humanness.” Jack is created to bring hope, in the form of a tenth clone model, or to bring destruction to the clones’ orderly world. When Jack meets Althea-310 their differences appear ready to destroy them or change their world forever. This story is told from the alternating perspectives of Jack and Althea-310 as they explore their growing understandings of what makes us human. The characters are engaging and well developed. The book is well written and captivating for anyone 17 or older who is interested in dystopian stories. I do not think younger people should read this based on the casualness of sex and sexual scenes. Otherwise, this is a great book, and I look forward to a sequel!
