Cloned Lives tells the story of the five clones Edward,
James, Michael, Kira und Albert.
The cloning experiment takes place, after a twenty year
moratorium that banned reserach in a number of scientific
fields, is over.
Because of his good charakter, Paul Swenson is picked
as cell donor by a fellow scientist.
The experiment is sucessful, only one of the embryos dies
in the artificial womb, one of the two female embryos.
Which redices the number of female protagonists to one.
Each of the clones is being introduced and followed closely
in one chapter, so the reader can follow their development.
How does it feel to grow up, closely observed by a critical
public? How does it feel, if the cell donor is being accused
of being a complete egomaniac? And how does the charakter
of the one cell donor translate to five clones?
It is a very good read that has kept a lot of its relevance,
simply because today, more than 30 years later, human
beings still have not been cloned ...
