The details and overall picture of one dome--Chicago--are terrifyingly believable.

Sequel, or quasi-sequel, it's open to interpretation. While "J2" certainly has Jemma7729 in it, she only appears briefly and fleetingly, and only for the first part of "J2". The novel "J2" is really the story of J2, or Jay, as she likes to be called, and who is Jemma7729's clone. While Phoebe Wray doesn't go into any explanation this time around, in "Jemma7729" Jay's society is fully explained, the results of which are emphasized here in "J2". But for those that haven't read "Jemma7729", in Jay's world, women are regulated to the status of being altered (lobotomized) so that they can be domesticated or used for manual work, or sterilized, so that they can be non-male threatening professionals, like actors, teachers, etc. However, men run the society, and they run it ruthlessly, especially their control over women. In this future dystopia, individuals have no last names, they just have ID numbers.

"J2" is a novel that overlaps with the trial of Jemma7729, which was the ending of "Jemma7729". Jemma7729's up-coming trial is positioned to be the trial-of-the-century, and so that it can be the elaborate media spectacle that this society's enforcers wants it to be, they will elaborate Jemma7729's kangaroo court with staged, if totally inaccurate, recreations. To do this, they need actors, so the powers-at-large have decided to use quickly grown clones to represent the individuals involved that have been involved in Jemma7729's life and "crimes". What the powers-at-large don't know is that Jay is not just a quickly grown clone, but one that has been long in the making. Birthed many years ago by the brilliant Jaak5113, she has been raised quasi-clandestinely, and treated, by him as if she were his very own daughter.

Both "Jemma" and "J2" contain a special kind of world-building, the world within a world. In "J2" Phoebe Wray creates a more shocking contrast between the natural, open outside world and the "domes," huge inclosed areas where the people are not only locked in physically (the "redguard") but even more effectively by false security, the result of lies and fears.
The imagery is excellent. The details and overall picture of one dome--Chicago--are terrifyingly believable.

Most impressive, important, and central to "J2"however, is the question, "What is a person?".
"What is a clone?" Wray asks her characters and us.

Format: Paperback
You don't need to have read "Jemma 7729" to enjoy this politico-philosophico-sci-fi novel, but you'll probably lust to read the original after you lay down this follow-up. "J2" is a magnificent job of dramatic structure, an almost movie-like trip through a half-a-dozen plot-threads, each of them given equal importance and each of them gripping and crystal-clear. Both major and minor characters are made vividly alive by judicious use of detail, and you always know instantly when and where you are, and with whom, each time the story jumps back to another location. The world of "J2" is an America ruled by a ruthless but negligent tyranny, and opposed by a group of fiercely independent freethinkers who are formulating their own counter-culture even as they destroy the ruling power. The title character is, appropriately, the most marvelously realized, but all characters are alive and enthralling.

Very well written story of J2 which is the 2nd book to Jemma. Both worth reading to get a glimpse into the future of what could happen to Earth. Just think...Stepford Wives in the FUTURE!!!!
