This Sci-fi thriller piece presents a scary future with cloning. The plot sounds intriguing and is worth giving a chance. Thanks, kandscreeley

Cloning is something I think is only possible in the movies and they make you actually wonder if such things can ever come true. The book reminds me of a movie I once watched. You have done well in this review.

Wow! I must say that, despite the fact that I don't really care for this genre, your review alone has sparked my interest. What a great, well-written review. I like that it was thought-provoking enough that you thought about it long after finishing reading it.

A new subject for a scifi book: cloning. Project Tau sounds like a very unusual story involving taking clones and making them slaves . The reviewer does say that although the plot is quick moving and suspenseful, the author has also developed his characters very well. Not my type of book, but congrats on BOTD.

Thank you for the review. I look forward to reading the book with a metaphorical one eye open. I've never heard a suspense book described that way, but you captured the feeling perfectly.

Well the premise of this book does not scare me at all. Actually it makes the story appear more intriguing. I can't wait to see what happens to Kalin and Tau. I think it is easier to picture a future like the one painted in this book because of the status of our current world. Finally, I find cloning so interesting.

It's an interesting concept of the project tau & kata clones. Reminds me of the movie "The Island" but with a slight twist in which the clones seem to start out as hostile. Great book 4 of 5 imo since it doesn't exactly say who the clones are clones of, or how the outside world looks like, then again, it could be because it may be mentioned then on or did.

From a sampling, this seems like an interesting science fiction thriller following a college student that, in order to join a fraternity, he is forced to break into a top secret cloning facility. It might be worth a second look. Well done.

This review makes me want to read the novel Project Tau. I enjoy relatable characters who are stuck in a future reality, the seeds of which have already been planted. I am also drawn to the humor mentioned in the review, as comic relief can actually communicate deeper themes more powerfully. Thank you to the author and reviewer for adding to my "To-Read" list!

This was Book of the Day/Book of the Month some time last year, and I must say, this is a good and creatively well-written out-of-the-box book.
If you want to be remembered long after you are gone, do things worth writing about or write things worth reading about.

I don't really like sci-fi books but the cover looks interesting.
