Masterly... A novel with piercing questions about humanity and humaneness. (Sunday Times)
A brilliantly executed book by a master craftsman who has chosen a difficult subject: ourselves, seen through a glass, darkly. (Margaret Atwood Slate.com)
A page-turner and a heartbreaker, a tour de force of knotted tension and buried anguish. (Time)
A master stoyteller ... In this deceptively sad novel, he simply uses a science-fiction framework to throw light on ordinary human life, the human soul, human sexuality, love, creativity and childhood innocence. He does so with devastating effect. (Independent)
A clear frontrunner to be the year's most extraordinary novel. (Sunday Times)
Brilliant. The most exact and affecting of his novels to date. (Observer)

The premise of the story is that each child has been cloned and brought up as an organ donor or donor carer. Kathy in her early 30s reflects back on her childhood and early adulthood trying to make sense of life and where she belongs. The old headmistress may have some answers. She can never let go of her destiny and the world she was born into at Hailsham.
It all seemed incredibly sedate and accepting and I thought there may have been more investigation and refusal to accept the lives they had mapped out. The characters were largely disappointing with no energy in the storyline or from their contribution. The plot and ultimate outcome felt inconsequential and overall I was disappointed in this book.
