The Echo Wife
The Echo Wife teaches that sometimes, in order for you to really know yourself, there has to be another one of you. The plot, though not the most realistic, was enough to hold my attention. This is a well-written story, with a unique style of writing which was quite intriguing. More interestingly, it explores the depths of human character. It provides its own perspective on the topics of cowardice and courage, correctness and incorrectness, victory and defeat.
Evelyn Caldwell is a brilliant scientist who holds much respect for her work with clones. Evelyn’s life away from her lab, however, is much less rosy. She is recently divorced from a cheating husband, but her husband wasn’t keeping just anyone as a mistress. He was cheating with Evelyn’s clone which he developed with her own research. His work comes back to bite him though when he is murdered. This, however, means Evelyn and her clone, Martine, must figure out a way to cover up his death and clean the mess he’s made.
All in all, this is a good book, although it does include some controversial topics such as abortion and cloning. People who have strong views on these subjects should be warned before picking up this book. I believe this book is best for adults who are interested in the topic of cloning-or any aspect of science-and enjoy thrillers.
