5.0 out of 5 stars Another great book, 18 April 2011

This review is from: Replica (Kindle Edition)
I really enjoyed the first of Lexi Revellian's books that I read on Kindle, 'Remix', so I decided to try this one too. I enjoyed 'Replica' just as much, although in many ways the stories are very different.

The similarity is that the heroines of both books are loveable and likeable, but both a bit too trusting and, well, nice! I thought the weakest part of this book was the initial set-up, of Beth being cloned and the implausible nature of the technology etc that enables this. Never mind, I was happy to suspend my disbelief, because as soon as the story got underway it was full of suspense, and I love the author's writing style.

Although occasionally I wanted to hit Beth for being so naive and trusting of various characters and situations, I thought on the whole she was a brilliant character. She was believable and in general she reacted much as I think most of us would during a lot of the action. The fact that, while on the run and fearing for her life at every turn, she still felt tempted to correct a spelling error in some obscene graffiti was just the icing on the cake of a perfect character.

Nick is a lot more ambiguous, and I'm not sure I ever figured out quite what I thought of him (which I think was at least partly the intention). It was an interesting change to have a 'hero' who does an awful lot of things that are anything but heroic, and who is not working solely for the good of the other characters.

I think in actual fact I probably would have given this 4.5 stars, because I felt the ending was a bit rushed after all the suspense, but I've rounded it up because I enjoyed the rest of it so much. I'm looking forward to reading more by Lexi.
