Six Wakes by Mur Lafferty

Mur Lafferty crafted an amazing sci-fi book with Six Wakes.

I was me hooked early by the well-crafted story. It’s full of mystery, intrigue, and uses a premise I’ve never met before.  What’s the premise? Generational space travel by cloning.

The cloning isn’t to create multiple copies or versions of a person. Instead, it gives the ability for a person to live forever. When the person is cloned, the new body is twenty years of age. Through brain mapping, the memories, knowledge, and experience of the person forever increase as they have all the recollections and know-how of the old body they’ve replaced.

The book is too good not to read if you love science fiction filled with who done it. I dub Mur Lafferty the title of Master Storytelling goddess. No wonder the book was nominated for every sci-fi award. It is a murder mystery set in space with clones.

As I said, Mur Lafferty crafted an amazing sci-fi book with Six Wakes.
