Brilliantly done. Amazing characterisation is the foundation for this book, that and the incredible writing. Definitely one of my top reads of the year so far.

Thanks to the publisher an author as this was a free arc received on goodreads and it was amaze balls!

Slightly longer review:

I read this in one sitting and thought it was phenomenal.

Not so much for the ideas (clones haven't been a bold new idea since the 1930s, contrary to what the litfic crowd would have you believe...) or the "bUt WhAt iS a HoOmAn" musing (also not new), but because the characters are incredibly well done and the personal story arc is riveting in a macabre, darkly humourous way.

Straight up thriller readers and the Purity Litfic crowd won't like this much but it's a great bit of upmarket spec fic. Some of the Goodreads reviews called it a cross between Killing Eve and Westwold, and I think that's pretty accurate for feel. ( )

It’s definitely more of a 3.5 for me.

I decided to pick this one because I really enjoyed one novella of the author, Upright Women Wanted. While that was a lot of fun, this book is a whole collection of WTF moments.

Considering this is my first book with clones, I understood whatever basic scientific information that author wanted to give us. And despite the subject matter of this novel, it is less of a sci-fi and more of a character driven story of two women who’ve been betrayed by the same man. While one of them is full of anger and regrets and wonders who exactly knows the real her, the other woman just wants the agency to be able to make her own decisions and be proud of them. The struggles they go through together until they form a very unique kind of relationship is very fascinating to read about. It was also interesting to contemplate if cloning would become a reality in our future and what kind of moral and ethical dilemmas we would have to face.

In the end, this was both mind blowing and mundane at the same time. Interesting concepts and characters make this an enjoyable thriller, but the ending kinda didn’t live up to my expectations. However, if you enjoy futuristic stories that’ll make you think while also entertaining you, then I would totally recommend this book. ( )

Evelyn Caldwell's life's work has been in the field of cloning. She's just received an award for her achievements and that recognition will open so many doors for her. But while her professional life is going great, her marital life with Nathan, well, not so much. She's just met Martine, her husband's mistress. A woman who has Evelyn's face, body and DNA but not her strong will, her psychological trauma or her office hours. A woman who can give Nathan everything that Evelyn cannot.

So, yes, Martine is a clone. This is not a spoiler, it tells you in the hook on the front flap. But I believe the meat of the story would hold up even if she wasn't. This book is a fascinating look at psychological behavior in relationships. How Evelyn and Martine view each other and how it changes over time. And their understanding of the man they both love but love differently. Such beautifully crafted work. And, I think, a story that could have only been written this well by a woman. I loved it. ( )

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.

"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."
tilføjet af zembla | RedigerNew 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."
tilføjet af zembla | RedigerNPR, 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."
