Summary: From Lauren Oliver, New York Times bestselling author of Before I Fall and the Delirium trilogy, comes an epic, masterful novel that explores issues of individuality, identity, and humanity. Replica is a “flip book” that contains two narratives in one. Turn the book one way and read Lyra’s story; turn the book over and upside down and read Gemma’s story. The stories can be read separately, one after the other, or in alternating chapters. The two distinct parts of this astonishing novel combine to produce an unforgettable journey. Even the innovative book jacket mirrors and extends the reading experience. (Goodreads)
Lauren Oliver has become my auto-read author. I’ll read anything that woman writes 😀
Replica is two-for-one novel. You get two story in one book. The idea is not new whatsoever because I had read a book with multiple stories that entwined in the end. However the reading experience is somewhat new and I’m quite enjoying it even though my hands are tired because I had to flip the book back and forth. LOL
Replica is about human model experiment that were told by two different narratives, Lyra and Gemma. These are their journey to exposing Haven Institute. But they’ve found a rather shocking truths about themselves instead.
I love that one of the main heroines, Gemma, is different than typical heroines out there. As someone who had the same condition as Gemma, I appreciate and relate so much with her inner struggles. Or the fact that her love interest is not some kind school’s famous jock or something. It’s all makes the story somewhat… realistic.
The plot and twist were predictable but it doesn’t take away the fun. Well, except that certain someone’s death.
If you like the TV Show Stranger Things, you might want to read this book.
