I read this when it was new, and I loved it then. I still think it's worth reading today- in fact, parts of it are chillingly accurate regarding climate and food.

It suffers mostly from being so brief. There's quite a bit of room for expansion, and although I'm normally a big fan of terseness, there's just a little too much left out here. Some of the loose ends nag well after the book is returned to the library.

It is a very interesting and very cogent take on cloning, a superbly imagined scenario regarding the problems that might arise in such a society.
