The Klone and I
While on my honeymoon in Costa Rica, I ran out of books to read. I blasted through my books during my flights and layovers and early mornings when I couldn't sleep and he could. We visited a coffee shop we loved several times while in La Fortuna and they had a free bin of books. Josh was feeling a ...more
Evidently, Danielle Steel has been kidnapped by a mad scientist who clamped her into some gizmo that fused her brain with that of Douglas Adams, author of The Klone and I: A High-Tech Love Story, boasts her typical trappings--a divorced heroine, a cruel man, a sexy man with big money, and lots of shopping with brand-name tags conspicuously attached--the book is also the wackiest bit of self-indulgent sci-fi since
The Klone and I starts out normally enough: after a 13-year marr...more
Please tell it's a joke. It must be.
It's Danielle Steel trying to write a humorous romance, and, as such, may make you cry more than her normal romance novels.
First, so far as I can tell, it's making fun of "chick lit." It starts out with the standard situation:
After years of marriage and 2.4 children, the husband wants a divorce.
She puts in a lot of dumb details such as blaming it on wearing flannel pajamas, and claiming he was always her best friend, and now she doesn't ...more
when I read the summary I thought the idea is so silly but it really amazed me ..
the novel is a little bit old from the ninety I found it at the old books store and I was very lucky to have such a great book ...
Stephanie the main character I liked her so much she is so cute and funny ... I couldn't stop laughing at her hilariou ...more
I have never read anything by Danielle Steel before. I was expecting some kind of brain candy along the lines of Jackie Collins/ Shirley Conran / Jilly Cooper, which I'm not ashamed to admit I enjoy from time to time. This was not at all what I was expecting!
It started off OK, apart from the irritating first person - long marriage goes to pot out of the blue, husband leaves for the cliched bimbo, she picks herself up and moves on, meets a nice guy, ...more
So, on the box I was told to expect a love triangle and a wickedly funny read. Umm...while there were three in the relationship it didn't come across as much of a love triangle to me and I don't think I laughed once.
So, our heroine Steph has been left by her husband if 13 years who apparently no longer loves he ...more
I robots as much as the next person but REALLY????
The characters were annoying and only relatable in the sense of being THE WORST any of us can be...
But the heroine really stole the crown jewels when it came to being just yukh
Not only was she petty philanderer (coz honestly I'm not exactly ms.judgy judg ...more
But the idea of a woman getting involved with a man and his…clone? Well. Isn’t that special?
While the story took off with a hoot and a holler once Paul Klone (as he called himself) showed up, I found myself getting more than a littl ...more
Stephanie is a recently divorced mother of two. While spending a few days in Paris, she meets an intriguing engineer who sweeps her off her feet. Unfortunately, he travels quite a bit for work. So, while he's gone, he sends over his newest creation: his Klone. Now, Stephanie must choose between the man she loves and the Klone who makes her giddy.
Stupid concept that was never fully thought out. Danielle Steel doesn't appear to have do ...more
I'm a fan of No Greater Love and Daddy. The Klone and I was just a little too far-fetched of an idea for me to buy into it. Maybe that says something ...more
The Klone and I is a very captavating story about a woman named Stephaine whom loves her husband, children, and her life. Then s ...more
i can't remember a lot of it, but i do remember the basic premise is that a woman meets mr. perfect, who works for some kind of bioengineering firm. he has to travel a lot for business, so he "klones" himself so she won't be lonely. but the ...more
I read this book when it was released and loved it. I never knew Ms. Steel had such a wacky sense of humor! Having read her earlier books like "Palomino", "Fine Things", and "No Greater Love", her newer books were becoming very formulaic (girl loses boy by boy dying, tragedy, repeat, all in the same novel. Is she killing off her ex-husbands in her books?). Always loving a humorous story, and clones for some reason, having them combined in this novel was delightful.
If you read this book, keep yo ...more
