Okay, I advocate you: there are better ways to spend your time than reading this book. The Similars was a letdown in various ways, from a premise not fully explored to borderline bifurcation and genetic fallacies thrown at readers throughout the novel. The stereotypes were placid and predictable, the love story was entirely boring; the main character was a sappy, shallow figure and the heavily political influence was presented in a clouded, biased fasion.

This is a fascinating concept. You go back to school for your junior year and there are six new students that are replicas of current students -- with the exception that one of the new kids looks just like your deceased best friend. I appreciated the exploration of life with clones, but the attempts to metaphorically link this to the immigration crisis did not work for me. I found the last 1/3 of the book was a bit disjointed and don't know if I would invest in further editions in this series. I just don't care enough about Emmaline and Levi after reading this first book.
