Iris Sellin, a brilliant composer and pianist discovers she has multiple sclerosis. Driven by her art and with no time in her life for the uncertainty of love, she contacts an expert in artificial reproduction and becomes the mother of the world’s first viable human clone, Siri Sellin. Siri tells the story of how her Iris raised her as both daughter, twin sister, and extension of her self—a way to have her artistic skills live on after her own death.

More an extended philosophical essay than a gr

Das Thema "Klonen" ist sehr spannend.
Umso mehr wundert es mich, wie man es schafft, mit diesem Grundthema ein derart langweiliges Buch zu schreiben.
Von der ersten Seite an ist klar, worauf das Ganze hinauslaufen soll, es gibt keine einzige Wendung, keinen einzigen Monolog oder Dialog, der einem im Gedächtnis bleibt.
Es wirkt, als hätte die Autorin sich in eine Unterstufenklasse gesetzt, in der das Klonen diskutiert wurde, sich ein paar Notizen gemacht und dann versucht, diese Gespräche auf 180 Se
This being said: I had to read it for school.
I'm not that much into science fiction or cloning but I liked the musical aspects since I am a piano player myself.
What really confused me were the discrepancies. First Siri talks about Iris in one way, then in the other way, disagreeing with herself without seeming to realize it. Luckily we'll be talking about this aspect in school in detail.
Or maybe the problem is that I more or less rushed through the book since I was a bit behind schedule with

se trata de una novela juvenil,toca temas de adultos, como por ejemplo, la clonación, y sus consecuencias psicológicas, en lo social y morales.
es un género de la ciencia ficción, aunque la autora se interesa mucho más en las consecuencias de la clonación que en esta como hecho científico.pienso que la autora más bien se iva al lado sentimental y emotivo a la hora de describir el conflicto de un clon que no esta feliz consigo mismo.
La relación entre Iris y Siri no es muy buena,Iris quiere busca

Puh! Das Buch hat mich die letzten 100 Seiten ziemlich genervt, dabei hat es nur 175!
Es geht um Siri, die hier ihre Lebensgeschichte erzählt. Ihre "Mutter" Iris, erfolgreiche Pianistin, hat MS und kommt daher auf die Idee, sich klonen zu lassen und so entsteht Siri, die nun erzählt, was für eine Bindung zwischen ihr und Iris besteht und wie sie sich von ihr loslösen will und es schließlich schafft.
Das Thema bietet viel mehr, als die Autorin aufgreift. Sie vergibt vieles!! Als Leser entwickelt m

Iris Sellin, a successful pianist and composer, after discovering she has multiple sclerosis, lets herself be cloned to make sure her talent lives on, but Siri, the clone, has other ideas for herself.

Now, being a piano player myself, I liked the musical aspects, but that's about it. From all the characters, the only one with some depth is Siri herself, and that being her contradictory and repetitive soliloquies, which stand in for live commentary during the whole book. Which is fortunately only

This was by far the worst most unenjoyable book I've ever read! The plot is just weird and as far as I remember this book was written rather poorly.. I have to say some years have passed since I read this but I just remember it being painfully boring to read. This is definetly nothing school should make their students read (which was the reason I read it in the first place). The Topic is really interesting. It's about ethnical issues of cloning and what problems one could face if you clone yours ...more

One of the worst books I have ever attempted to read. Far too much whining, absolutely no progress and almost no moral dilemmas. I had the feeling that some teenager without talent had to make a 170 pages book out of a short story. Could not read it to the end. One star is far too much for it.

THebook is all about cloning. Iris and Siri (Iris read backwards) are mother and daughter and also twins at the same time.

Dieses Buch stellt glaubhaft dar, wie sich ein Klon-Kind unter "Herrschaft" seines Klon-Elters fühlt und Stück für Stück versucht, sich selbst zu finden. Glaubhaft, weil man sich das wirklich so vorstellen könnte. Aber eben nicht bewiesen und keine reale Geschichte. Langweilig erzählt und teilweise eher verwirrend denn erleuchtend.

Wer sich für das Thema Klonen interessiert, dem sei gesagt: Es geht in diesem Roman hauptsächlich um die emotionale Entwicklung des Klon-Kindes und weniger u

Wie ein Tatsachenbericht kommt "Blueprint-Blaupause" daher; vorstellbar und dadurch umso erschreckender. All diese Fragen, die hier radikal angekratzt werden- bis zur Ich-Werdung Siris und darüber hinaus- können eigentlich an niemandem spurlos vorüberziehen. Jemanden als Kopie eines Erdenbewohners in eine Gesellschaft zu katapultieren, in der wir uns selbst schon zuweilen fragen, wer wir eigentlich sind: Ist das überhaupt nur annähernd vertretbar?
Darüber bilde sich jede/r selbst eine Meinung. V

Recommends it for: Everybody
"Blueprint" diskutiert die in den letzten Jahrzehnten aufgekommene Frage des Klonens von Menschen in Form eines Romans. Charlotte Kerner schafft es, daraus gleichzeitig ein Porträt der menschlichen Psyche zu machen, das den Leser verstört.

Gleichzeitig ist die eigentliche Erzählung von Iris und Siri so faszinierend, dass man das Buch ohne es aus der Hand zu legen verschlingen kann.

I remember that I had to read this book for school. I was about 16 years old. I wasn't really open minded about it; a German book with a boring title I didn't understand, how stupid could it be?
Well, I loved it. I cried about it. Damn, it was so good.
I'm going to read this book again as soon as holidays start. Can't wait!

This was a really interesting book on a touchy subject, with a quite different style of writing that I had to get used to first. The author switches from reality to past and main character to the other main character all the time, but after a while it's simple to recognize. I really like it.

Finally trying to slog through this thing. Yes, yes, I know, it's brief. German aside, I think it's a bit tedious. Still, I'm finding a fairly easy read (finally) so odds are good that I'll get to the end of it.
Aug 12, 2013 Larissa rated it it was ok
Sehr schwierig zu lesen, da es sich meist um das Innenleben des Klons dreht. Langatmig und fast immer symbolisch. Aber dennoch besser als der Film.

Ein anderes gutes Buch zum Thema: Beim Leben meiner Schwester.
eine ziemlich harte und bemerkenswerte geschichte. stellt gewisse dinge in den mittelpunkt von denen man sich nicht vorstelllen könnte, dass sie im realen leben passieren könnten und deren folgen.

Ugh, that was ... awful at some points, but at the beginning still interesting and readable. I have to say that I had to read it for school, but I never finished the last 50 fifty pages ._.'

An interesting book by a German author about a girl who is a clone, and her search for identity and rights. It reminds me of Jodi Picoult's My Sister's Keeper.
