Religion aside, though, Williamson does a great job fleshing out her characters and her storyline. I loved that Abby is a very strong female lead, a Christian, and yet a flawed individual. Williamson does not make her out to be "holier than thou," and Abby succumbs to the same temptations, thoughts, and actions that the rest of us do, which, ultimately, makes her human as a very likable character.Read more ›
I really liked getting to know Abby in Replication. She seemed to have such a sweet personality, and yet she had such a "teenage-ish" feel with the way her scenes are written...they were all wonderfully done. And whenever a scene was written from Martyr's perspective, it was so unique. The way he describes things he's never seen--TV, runny eggs, a pregnant woman--was so innocently sweet--I even laughed at a few humorous moments.
Coupled with a great cast of characters, Williamson also created an intense and suspenseful plot that kept the reader on edge. Especially for the last half of the book--it just took off! Written for the YA genre, there wasn't thing questionable within the book that younger teen readers might have a problem with it. And while Replication is in the YA genre, I think readers of all ages would enjoy this adventure!
If there's one thing I love most in reading, is when the author can grab my attention from the beginning and never have a dull moment--and Jill Williamson did just that in Replication! I was riveted to the pages, intrigued by the characters, and completely lost in the suspense and action!
I reviewed this book for Team Novel Teen Blog Tour. Special thanks to the author for sending me a review copy. It was not required that I give a positive review, but solely to express my own thoughts and opinions of this book, which I have done.
Meanwhile, Abby Goyer is less than pleased about her biologist father's new job, which has unceremoniously whisked them away to a little jerkwater town in the Alaskan countryside. She's coping as best she can. The standoffish locals have her feeling like a freak, and she's caught the unwelcome attention of J.D. Kane, the boorish, unfairly handsome captain of the football team. Just when she thinks her life can't get any worse, Abby finds a strange boy hiding in her bedroom, shivering and bald, acting like he just dropped in from another planet.
And he's a dead ringer for J.D. Kane.
Replication - The Jason Experiment, is a near-future tale of suspense in the spirit of The Island and Robin Cook's medical thrillers, written by Jill Williamson, author of the award-winning Blood of Kings young-adult fantasy trilogy.
It asks a lot of profound questions along the way. What might happen when a person who is nearly a blank slate confronts a complex world that is nothing like he's been led to believe? Is destiny governed by heredity?Read more ›
