    One thought on “Unique”

    1. This wasn t bad at all, quite an easy enjoyable read and fairly typical of what you d expect from a young adult science fiction story.I liked the ethical questions about scientific advances and the different philosophical viewpoints of the religious and the non believers, some were nothing like what we would expect them to be However, the author spent the first half of the book trying to create some mystery around the circumstances of Dominic s secret brother s life and death, this would have be [...]

    2. It s actually really hard to fault this book It is written in a way that ensures you only put the book down when you upmost have to It asks those ethical questions will leaves you thinking for days and still you will be indecisive An amazing book, one which I would recommend to anyone.

    3. Dominic Gorden s life suddenly takes a shocking turn Whilst Painting at his Grandad s house he discovers an old family photo album, with pictures of him inside Thats what he thinks, until he turns the last page and finds himself 5 years older than he acctually is Then the word Brother flickers across his mind And his life is changed forever A few days later he is on a train heading to Cambridge Univercity, where he has found out it is where his brother studied and died There he meets his brother [...]

    4. really really good Its starts of with this boy called Dominic who has an alcoholic mum and a millionaire dad who expects to much of him He then looks at his family photos at his grandads house and realises his mum and dad is holding another child that looks like him He thinks its his brother but then he meets his brothers university mates and knows there very edgy around him He then meets his brothers tutor, Professor Imogen Holt, and overhears a conversation between her and her husband that he [...]

    5. Really amazing I loved the point of view with which the author analyzed that complex subject, and even if I loved Imogen s character, I think it s the only way it could have ended, and it was perfectly fine by me I loved the story, and every character as well Well done Alison A.G.

    6. This book suffers from progeria, which is bad for high school young adult literature, but fatal when the underlying story is weak to begin.This book was assigned to my high school class and fits all the young adult stereotypes The characters are rather bland, predictable and one dimensional The setting is a distopia future 2017 where cloning is banned with the penalty of death in the EU for those violators of the universal prohibition The themes of cloning, medical ethics and teenagers searching [...]

    7. It s really not one of the boring books despite the drab looking cover As always, I read the title and that s all before I just read the whole book Didn t even read that blurb on the cover page I think the suspense build up is very good, I never thought Dom is anywhere within the unnatural twin kids industry until after that 3am outburst at Imogean s house Dominic seems very cool for his age but definitely still a young adult, curious and stubborn I thought the incident which brings the end of t [...]

    8. I mean I enjoyed it at first but it became a real struggle to read by the end I think i just kind of fell out of love with it and then didn t care for it at all It s not really my normal genre so I m not completely surprised that I wasn t interested in it really.I don t think it s a bad book but just wasn t for me and I wouldn t really recommend it to my friends.The only reason I really pushed through was because i was quite close to the end and I needed another book to complete my goal.

    9. The plot was quite interesting though the personality of Dominic made me cringe every single time he talked because he sounded a lot like a arrogant and selfish 12 year old then a 15 year old.

    10. YO BORRY This was the worst book I have ever read Before I opened the book it was obvious what the major storyline was It wasn t written that well and the storyline was predictable and boring.To be fair, it was probably that people in my English class were actually surprised by the turn of events even after the title and the blurb and all of the glaringly blatant hints throughout the first few chapters practically spelling it out for their puny minds which really made me angry and made me dislik [...]

    11. Dominic has always been a disappointment to his ambitious father, but he has never understood why Then he discovers that he had an older brother who died before he was born Where his brother was a brilliant academic and scientist, Dominic prefers to waste his time painting His father cannot forgive him for it Dominic decides to try to find out about his brother, but he discovers than he bargained for Their father had Dominic s dead brother cloned, and Dominic is the result How can he live with [...]

    12. really really good Its starts of with this boy called Dominic who has an alcoholic mum and a millionaire dad who expects to much of him He then looks at his family photos at his grandads house and realises his mum and dad is holding another child that looks like him He thinks its his brother but then he meets his brothers university mates and knows there very edgy around him He then meets his brothers tutor, Professor Imogen Holt, and overhears a conversation between her and her husband that he [...]

    13.

    14. There s a dystopian element to this story, set in 2017, which was about 15 years into the future when it was written but it s not far off now, and things haven t changed as much as the author foresaw Anyway, it s an interesting plot about a teenage boy who discovers he had an eerily similar older brother, who died before he was born When he uncovers the big family secret, he puts himself and several other people in mortal danger.Unfortunately Dominic, the main character, was like no teenage boy [...]

    15. The book Unique I thought was a bit confusing,but when I got in to I thoughtit was a very good book.Its about a boy whose lives in a mansion because his dad is very wealthy.One day he finds out that he had an older brother that looked exactly like him and it turns out he s a clone of his brother.He runs away from home and finds the woman who created him and the story of how he died,in a biking accident,and after a lot of trouble with the womans husband and his dad he goes to live with his dead b [...]

    16. M me si le th me abord tait int ressant et assez original, je pas aim cette lecture Les sentiments des personnages sont survol s, et toutes leurs r actions sont, pour moi, absolument invraisemblablesPar exemple, le gamin fugue pendant plusieurs jours sans que ses parents, ou son lyc e ne pr vienne la police Apr s, il enl ve son grand p re, et pareil, personne ne s inqui tePerso, c est le genre de truc dont j ai horreur et qui me g che le plaisir Donc je ne recommanderai pas cette lecture.

    17. I read this book quite a while ago, and from what I remember being so engrossed with it and read it in a day It was a great book to read especially when it came to the ethical questions that the book tackles such as cloning And thanks to this book, after I ve read it which was also during the time we were planning for a big essay on my philosophy and ethics class and I was still coming up with ideas on what topic to write about After I read Unique it clicked that I could write about genetic engi [...]

    18. I liked the storiesSpoilers AlertFor me even he was a clone of just someone, his brother, there s still something that makes him unique.I think this story is really based from siblings Example, when the other one was intelligent, you should be intelligent or you should like Science or Math because your sibling likes them Everyone just need to respect and accept that we re different in a way from one another because that s who we are.

    19. Awesome and heart warming book It make me realize that humans should learn to stay within their limitss and not damage someone else s life Even though Dominic s father did not want to believe that he lost his son he shouldn t expect Dominic to become exactly like him What God has given us cannot be created again.

    20. Okay, what I liked most about this book is that I could read it straight through in German in one sitting That means that it had enough tension and a sympathetic enough character and was low enough on unnecessary description that I could actually get lost in the story and forget the mechanics of reading in another language It s called Unique in the original British, I think.

    21. This was a pretty good book, when I read it though, I thought it was meant to be for younger kids but I found it in the teen isle I personally think that it would be better to put into the 8 12 isle, it would have caught attention It was a really good book from my perspective and an impeccable idea

    22. Finished reading Unique by Alison Allen Gray Another take on cloning humans, but not quite as good as her Lifegame story An easy read, but rather sad story Somehow you just wish there was to it, but maybe I m just over the whole clone thing after having just read a novel about it So, what does this version get 6 10 Good light weight read, well done on the NBRS.

    23. While I was forced to read this book and that may have taken away from my overall enjoyment of the story, there were some genuinely exciting things going on within the book I liked getting an insight into the world of cloning and its ethical questions, however the authors writing style was HORRIBLE That and it being required reading, meant Unique was very so so for me.

    24. Hadn t realised this was a teen book when I bought it and it certainly exceeded my expectations Great concept and plot and I always felt that I wanted to read on At times some things that happened felt odd and reminded me I was reading a book aimed at a younger audience but overall I enjoyed it.

    25. Read this one at secondary school and it was very interesting how it dealt with the theme of cloning and whether or not it is ethical, from the point of view of a clone who was cloned from his dead brother.

    26. Really enjoyed this book, quite thought provoking as it addresses some issues facing science today and what the personal repurcussions for individuals would be Don t want to give too much away though

    27. I thought that elements of this book were really good, but it was not an enjoyable read for me I don t typically read sci fi and when I do it s not the kind of thing I enjoy writing about If it wasn t required for English, I wouldn t have enjoyed it as much.
