Bookish Review: A Nearly Perfect Copy
A Nearly Perfect Copy by Alison Amend is an interesting book. The title refers to the books two topics: art forgery and cloning. An odd combo, right? The book is really, however, about just how far people are willing to go to get what they think they want or deserve and how going too far can lose them everything in the process. It's a book about loss, about what constitutes "art," and whether a forgery that is just as good as an original should be considered any less that art itself. The juxtaposition of the two stories doesn't always work, but for the most part it is an interesting read.
Note: An e-ARC of this title was provided by the publisher via NetGalley, which was much appreciated, but did not affect the content of my review.
