The story is told in the alternating voices of a boy and girl generated from test tube fertilization and segregated from all normal family life. They know nothing else. And yet . . . and yet, in the midst of all the efforts to remove any differences or conflict, the human spirit peeks out from the darkness and grows into a loving flame.
The story also explores how very much the human person depends on others to nourish and challenge him to grow and develop. The adults in the story raise other questions and could provide a fascinating prequel to Escape From the Village. The matter-of-fact bare bones description of what led to the Villages is chilling in itself.
One of the most striking things, to me, was the importance and power of a name. The story ends as a beginning. With two who are no longer ciphers, but unique and uniquely named just beginning to discover not only who they are, but whom they may become, it demands a sequel.
For people who complain about people who write bad reviews without finishing, you are an idiot. You wouldn't eat take a bite of a burned burger and wait until you finished it to complain it wasn't good.
