Re: Official Review: Project Tau by Jude Austin

Quite a thought-provoking book. It is a science fiction book that, to a degree, predicts the not so far away future. As you said, cloning will become a reality. It's not far-fetched to believe that clones will be used as slaves or forced organ donors. I loved your review as it gave me an insight into the book.

If the future looks like the scenes briefly highlighted in the book, I would rather be stuck in the present. On the other hand, I find the themes irresistibly tempting. The review is nice. Congratulations

This is a fast-paced, gripping science fiction thriller highlighting clones, science fiction, and mature content. The book has a free sample on Amazon Kindle and has a unique OnlineBookClub review. I rated the book 3 out of 4 stars. Congrats @JudeAustin18 on the BOTD selection.

Cloning and suspense seem to go good together in this sci-fi novel. I like that there's humor involved, as well.

I agree with you! This book was very enticing & kept me wanting to read! Which was amazing, because I was a little apprehensive before I started it.
It definitely does make you stop and think, "will this be in my future? Or my kids'?"
Great review! Thanks

A book about cloning sounds interesting. I will have to read more about this. Great review.

This is a disturbing premise as we are already so close to this becoming a reality! While I would love to have a clone to take over housework, I think it definitely could come with some repercussions. I am glad the author invested in describing the characters. Thanks for your wonderful review!

Cloning is a reality today. When human cloning is performed, will science have gone too far? Project Tau is a frightening sci-fi novel that answers that question. It has strong characters and adds a touch of humor to break the tension. Congratulations to the author for being chosen as BOTD. Thanks to the reviewer for your excellent review.

While I've always been fascinated by cloning, there's something about this book that isn't quite pulling me in. Probably the whole 'giving in to peer pressure' thing. I'll think about it some more.

Project Tau by Jude Austin sounds interesting but unfortunately it's not my cup of tea. However, I will recommend it. Great review.
Books are beautiful.

A Science-Fiction Thriller is not my preferred genre, but I like that this one is about cloning, rather than about aliens, so I may give it a try! With well-developed characters and edge-of-your-seat suspense, this may be the one that crosses me over to the other side. :-) Your review was really well-written. Great job and thanks!

The authors some times paint a gloomy picture of the future.No one knows what would be its real picture, these are only assumption or guess.This is a fast paced futuristic science fiction thriller highlighting clones.The story is set in the late 34th century.The book covers human rights, slavery and abuse.

Your feeling while reading this book is quite relatable. :D Some books just make us feel that way. We want to put them down, but they pull us back. However, I'm not a fan of science fiction, so I'll pass on this one.
