"Six Wakes is [Mur Lafferty's] breakout book."―Cory Doctorow
"This is one of the cleverest and most exciting murder mysteries I have ever read. The confined space of the colony ship Dormire is filled with feisty and memorably strange characters who bounce off one another in ways that vary from the comic to the horrific. You like ideas in your science fiction? Lafferty does for clones what Asimov did for robots. Six Wakes will keep you turning pages right up to its startling climax. Mur Lafferty scores in this, her best book!"―James Patrick Kelly, winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Locus awards on Six Wakes

I liked the story. Good mystery with a satisfying ending. All the characters are interesting and distinct. Touches on philosophical question of clones and souls without going super deep and rambly/preachy. 😄👍
