Oof, this one was prickly to read. I keep hearing Gailey's voice from the online reading and how sharp their voice was on all the cutting things Evelyn would say or think. We learn more and more about the relationships that molded Evelyn into the tightly wound and isolated research biologist she is, and pretty much none of them were healthy. Of her attitude toward her ex husband:
"There was a helplessness in him that I responded to by pulling away and ignoring him on instinct. It bred my contempt, and I never fought the contempt back, not once."
She's developed a cloning technique that allows imprinting attitudes and emotions on the specimens and the novel dives deep into nature versus nurture and self analysis. She uses the words conditioning and finishing and basically grooms the clones, the author calls out the men who abused them in the acknowledgements at the back, so fair warning. This felt like a very true personal and cathartic story to write, reading it felt like trying to cuddle a porcupine - interesting but spiky. This one would make a good book club book, there's ethics and morals and trauma and betrayal and the constant underlying question of ends vs means. ( )

Needed a better editor, but contains some fascinating and controversial ethical issues re: cloning. Not for the faint-hearted. ( )

Pandemic read. Saw this on a friend's shelf, and as we have similar tastes in books, I decided to read it. It was fine for the genre, but the acknowledgements at the end were magnificent, chilling, and truly eye opening(I'll try to post a picture on my instagram account @bookczuk.) I have read several books by this author, which was another reason I chose to read this. The acknowledgements definitely made it worth it, and I'm hoping some people are squirming after recognizing themselves in it. To Sarah Gailey, should you possibly read this: Thank you for this book, but mostly thank you for your honesty. I'm so appalled you had to go through such things in life, and know that far too many women have. Your bravery and honesty have opened my eyes even more. I'm hopeful I have been able to help some other women through some similar situations as successfully as some of the people you mentioned. Cruelty of any sort is an abomination. ( )

I love thrillers, but I don't read them for their substance. I read them for the savor of trying to determine the mystery, for the joy of rooting for someone's comeuppance, for the satisfaction of solving the puzzling, and for the shock of not being able to do so. Sarah Gailey provided all of that here, and they provided substance.

While themes of abuse and grooming are ever-present in this novel, they are presented safely off-screen—in discussion and consequence rather that detailed gruesomely before you. This is deftly done so that anyone familiar with the environment feels the presence immediately yet without being provoked by graphic imagery. The story also examines transhumanist and feminist themes of womanhood, motherhood, and how these are socially seen and seen as so very inseparable.

This is by far my favorite work of theirs, and I hope an excellent narrator has been chosen because I'm already looking forward to a reread. ( )

This is an intense novel about human cloning, about scientific research lab dynamics, about abuse in relationships and families, and a lot about self-identity. If this is not exactly horror, it's close enough to warrant mentioning that some seriously creepy body 'programming' is described. Intriguing power dynamics and the depiction of the wives' roles make this deeper than just a thriller. ( )

"Love, death and human cloning have never been brought together so well as they are in The Echo Wife, a fast-paced thriller that is as funny as it is thought-provoking."

"'The Echo Wife' is a unique, thrilling adventure, with truly unexpected twists and turns the whole way through. Lovers of science fiction will no doubt delight in the intricacies of Evelyn’s work laid about by Gailey, who also crafts a compelling tension between Evelyn and Martine as they work to find common ground."
adicionada por zembla | editarAssociated Press, Molly Sprayregen (Feb 17, 2021)
"Sarah Gailey has given us a compelling blockbuster with cerebral complexity. The questions Gailey grapples with are the very essence of what it means to be human, whether we possess self-determination or whether we are fated toward outcomes beyond our control. An intense, engaging novel, The Echo Wife succeeds at both good storytelling and launching into a broader discourse."
adicionada por zembla | editarChicago Review of Books, Ian MacAllen (Feb 17, 2021)
"There are no magic wands or post-apocalyptic cults in The Echo Wife, but Gailey nonetheless builds one of their most daring worlds yet — the massive, internal world that forms between two people linked by secrets, lies, hatred, and love. Not to mention that shared, unsettling epiphany of seeing their rawest selves reflected in each other."
adicionada por zembla | editarNPR, Jason Heller (Feb 17, 2021)
"... a phenomenal, creepy, significant novel—but it’s a hard read, and wrestling with its implications is harder. The twisting, remorseless plot seamlessly combines domestic thriller with cutting-edge science fiction, dragging the reader along as the Caldwells’ secrets are unearthed one at a time. Sarah Gailey’s incisive prose lends to the suffocating atmosphere that pervades the book, maintaining a heightened state of discomfort that is magnified by thematic explorations of spousal abuse, cloning ethics, and straight-up murder."
