5 out of 5 Guitars! (or stars!)
Let me start by saying don't be fooled by the title. It sounds a little silly and I think it might put some people off, but I will say that this has to be one of the best books I've read in a while.
So, here's the deal, if you love 1984 (like I do!) you will enjoy this book. The influence of George Orwell's classic is all over this book - but in a good way. And judging from the references I would guess that Kozeniewski is a fan too.
Right from the opening page this book had me hooked and intrigued. I honestly couldn't put it down. The concept is simple enough - what if the world was populated by clones? What if you were a carbon copy and individuality was an alien concept? And what if one day you suddenly realised that you could be different - you could stand out?
Now, I will just say that as a big fan of 1984 I could see a lot of similarities, but it worked in the books favour rather than against it.
The downside is, I can't say too much about the plot here without giving too much away.
But honestly, I can't recommend this book enough. It might not be everyone's cup of tea - but if you enjoy 1984, Fahrenheit 451 and similar books, and you like a little humour mixed in with your sci-fi, pick up this book.
A great read!
