Taylor Five ebook

by Ann Halam


For Catherine Sinclair-Jones.

For Catherine Sinclair-Jones. About five o’ clock the Land Rover turned up. Tay and Donny climbed in and they drove away, through the straggle of shantytown around the tropic city and into the thrilling dusk of the forest, just as the fruit bats came out for their evening prowl: flapping up out of the sunset like an army of vampires.

If we leave because of a temporary crisis, we might lose the reserve forever. Nothing more was said about sending Tay and Donny to Singapore.

I do enjoy reading about orangutans, field studies and exotic environments (Borneo). I also enjoy reading about sci-fi medical stuff. This reads very much like a YA adventure and a majority of the interesting sci-fi gene/cloning experimentation was treated as background info rather than the focus of the book. I wish this aspect had been given more emphasis. Tay (cloned human - one of 5 clones who are now teenagers) and her younger 'brother' Donny (natural child of her adoptive father and mother) spend the summer at a rescue site for orphaned orangs in Borneo where their 'parents' work. Political drama ends with the destruction of the study site while the Tay and Donny are exploring a cave site. Bad things happen and the two, along with Uncle, an orang from Sumatra and Clint, a scientist with a Clint Eastwood obsession, attempt to travel miles and miles to another study site where Tay's clone-mamma works. More bad things happen. Ended with a lot of loose threads related to the cloning issues....and very little happens in terms of the 4 other clone-teens.

From an adventure story perspective, this book does a good job. From the perspective of a sci-fi medical thriller, it falls short. I enjoyed the read but felt much of the interesting stuff wasn't given enough emphasis. The book had a semi-Crichton vibe to it ala Jurassic Park....but read more like some of the freebies/99 cent reads I've picked up. I don't think it was worth the price I paid (sigh).

This book kept me interested enough to finish it, but I found it unnecessarily depressing.

I didn't really like the book itself, but I really enjoyed the theme and concepts (you can figure for yourself). The book starts out in Borneo where Tay's bro is returning to the orangutan reserve, and Tay is revealed as one of five clone test-tube babies. There are many chapters are introduction and life at the reserve. Then rebels attack and Tay, her brother, Clint the Eastwood-obsessed scientist, and a human-like orangutan called Uncle. Some 5 chapters later, Tay and Uncle live. What a long lived 1000 kilometer trek. Uncle gets locked up and with the painful ordeals, Everyone thinks they're helping Tay by making her forget and not know the secrets, but it worsens. SO, exactly what is it about her and uncle and the other 4 clone test-tube babies? Four words for Tay: STOP CRYING AND STAMMERING. At first you could understand her pain, but then the stammering and sniffling and the teary eyes start to get really annoying. If this should be a good book, Tay shouldn't cry as much and be a more stronger character.
