The House of the Scorpion #1

3 stars out of 5

Pros: It made me think about how human clones would be treated and what rights they might have.

Cons: There a bit of repetition in the book that gets tiring. An example of this would be that the author refers to the beginning of the book a lot with repeated quotes and references.

Conclusion: All in all, I liked this book, but it isn’t in my top favorites.
