The best kinds of sci-fi books are those that are realistic. It adds a level of threat to a story. Sci-fi hits harder when you can see it becoming reality than just staying fiction. Great review!

There are so many questions about clones. Would they have the same rights as humans? It's an interesting subject for sure, and the author treated it well.
That is an interesting question indeed, and one that the great Isaac Asimov explored in his short story Bicenntenial Man, although in the case of Asimov's story he was dealing with robots as opposed to clones. Still, the question at the heart of the issue is essentially the same. That is, what is it exactly that makes an entity human? That short story is a great read, and one that I would definitely recommend, if you find such topics appealing. On my end, I might just end up checking out this novel. Good review, by the way.

Sometimes I wonder at the type of imagination a person must have in order to paint the fictional future of the world. It already seems like such an interesting read and I cannot wait to try it out.

Though the book sounds promising, I will probably skip the read because of the genre. Appreciate the review though.🌸

:techie-reference: Project Tau by Jude Austin is a work of science fiction and yet it deals with topics like human cloning, and the consequences of making bad choices. These are relatable topics to young adult and adult audiences.This book makes for interesting reading!

Human cloning as well as using humans as experiments seems scary, Although am not really a huge fan of the Sci fi genre, this review has got me interested in reading the book. Good review.

These futuristic-themed books give me chills every damn time. Makes me wonder if humanity is taking a turn for the worst. Anyway, I really enjoyed reading your review and I will definitely check that book out.

I'm a fan of sci-fi novels but i feel cloning is a dangerous and scary aspect of genetics. I may find this book fascinating when i read it. Thanks for the review.

Human cloning? It is a sure read for me. Your review gave me an imaginary insite to what the book is about. Great review.
