review Unique by Alison Allen-Gray Alison Allen-Gray ↠ 0 Read Download Ñ PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook ↠ Alison Allen-Gray R father had Dominic's dead brother cloned and Dominic is the resultHow can he live with this mind blowing discovery If the truth is ever made public it could put people's lives in danger including his o I think the first time I d heard of this book was when I was uite young secondary school age for sure I remember seeing a friend of mine with this book in her hand and she had told me that it was pretty good and I believed her because why wouldn t I I was a young child who devoured books like there was no tomorrow and I was always on the look out for my next read So I kept it in mind for years eventually buying it and then reading it years later when I was definitely past being the target audience and age group for this bookAlthough it did help me surpass my reading goal from last year so there s thatIt s not a terrible book I ll give you that As an undergraduate student I was heavily invested in the TV show Orphan Black and still do think it s one of the best TV shows of the 2010s This book rekindled a love of that TV show in me again reminding me that I ve always loved the concept of cloning and genetics Uniue is the story of a young boy Dominic who finds out through his ailing grandfather that he had an older brother who died years before he was born Dominic s parents very wealthy individuals are trying to push Dominic into entering the scientific field hoping for their son to achieve success there but he is interested in painting and being an artist causing them immense disappointment And when he finds out that he had an older brother who was very intelligent and invested in the medical field he suddenly realizes why But it all goes a step further when Dominic finds out that he s not actually a younger sibling but a clone of a boy who died in an unfortunate accident and the product of an experiment to see if greatness could be replicatedIs the story somewhat predictable Completely It s a great read for young adults who have a budding interest in biologyBut does it raise amazing uestions Absolutely The whole point of the story is that Dominic is his own person a boy with his own ambitions and dreams and nothing like his older brother the person he was cloned from Dominic wants to break away from the wishes his parents have for him wants to build his own life independently of the shadow of his genetic parent but can t because his parents have placed a burden of expectations on him that he doesn t deserve And this book perfectly highlights what everyone gets wrong about cloning The logic behind cloning is easy enough if you take something and duplicate it it ll be the same But people fail to realize that that only means on a genetic level and not on any other level While there will be some common traits of course such as physical appearances there are also a lot of factors that come into the people we grow up to become which have nothing to do with genetics and all about how we re raised the Nature versus Nurture argument And this book is the perfect fictional example of that Dominic cloned and made into the spitting genetic image of his brother grows up with a father who places a lot of emotional pressure on him a mother who is heartbroken over the loss of her son and a grandfather who is trying to bury it all within his mind and all of this causes him to become a completely different person one who inevitably becomes a disappointment So what did I ultimately think of this book As a book it gets a 35 from me But as a concept and as a way of working with the uestion of cloning it definitely gets a 55 especially considering its target audience
