I read this book for an eng lit course on representations of the body. Indeed, the issues raised about cloning are very interesting but, I have to admit, I thought that the great thing about this book was the relationships portrayed. When the protagonist tries to visit her dying grandmother, who mistakes her for her daughter, I was moved to tears. If you are interested in the nature of identity, family, science and the body, then this book will be very interesting. However, if you are just looking for a cracking read, then this book is equally suitable.
