The Echo Wife

Have you ever wished they’re two of you
One to stay home and clean house
And one to go to work. A clone to take the kids to an activity, while you’re home drinking wine in the bathtub
An exact replica with your thoughts your feelings your face.
No one can tell the difference not even your mother

The first cloned sheep in 1996 started a whole new world for us.

What if they clone the president or the governors. Don’t they seem tireless. On the go!?!?

Evelyn Caldwell is a super smart award wining scientist and she’s made a clone of herself to give her husband some company. As she works tirelessly at home and at work, she needed someone to keep her husband company. But little did she know this clone is diff from ALL of the others.

eaudiobook (sci-fi/suspense/drama - cloning and ethics)

excellent narration, an enjoyably suspenseful story. ( )

I wasn't sure about this when I started it. In the beginning, it reads like a women's relationship story. Nothing wrong with that, but not my interest. However, it turned pretty quickly into a surprisingly intricate thriller. I won't say any more, other than its well worth the read and you will not be disappointed. ( )

Wow, this was unique!! Evelyn Caldwell is a distinguished scientist who has successfully completed with in cloning specimens. While she has professional success, her marriage has fallen apart. Her husband, Nathan, has left Evelyn for another woman, Martine. But Martine isn’t just any woman, she is Evelyn’s clone, just more perfect for Nathan than Evelyn. When Nathan ends up dead, Martine calls Evelyn, desperate for help. What follows is creepy and unsettling.
Very enjoyable and creepy, while creating ethical questions about science and human genetics, especially the ethics around cloning.
The ending will surprise you, as will the story behind the creation of Martine. I look forward to reading more books from this author. I enjoyed the way she combined science and intrigue into this unforgettable science fiction psychological thriller! ( )

A big resounding YAY for The Echo Wife. This is absolutely the best book I've read this year.

Now, I'm not a sciencey type person so maybe there were things that someone with a science background would call BS over but, for me, the whole thing seemed plausible and, because of that, scary. I loved Evelyn's perspective and I'm glad we only got her POV. She had emotions but didn't allow them to overshadow her logic. And Martine... I loved her too. I loved the whole damn book. All of it. I don't believe I've ever read anything quite like it.

Now I need to find more books by Sarah Gailey. Because wow.

Massive thanks to Tor Books for inviting me to read this through NetGalley. ( )

"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."
tillagd av zembla | ändraNew Scientist, Robyn Chowdhury (Feb 24, 2021)
 
"'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."
 
"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."
 
"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."

"... 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."
