What a beautiful and sad story. What world would you not create for your dying child. This family learns that they can save the memories of their dying child. They hope through cloning to bring him back. In the real world there is only a short time that parents can control their child's world. The dreams of youth, imagination, and fantasy only stay with us for so long in the human mind. How would you react to a world caught in the imagination of a child? I immediatly connected to this story. When I was young I had fantasies about Don Quixote based soley on only hearing the songs of the musical with no context. This book played on the childlike fantasy that I created from the musical. My fantasy was no where near the reality of the book or the real play. Wow Walter what a great story. A refreshing look on the question of humanity, and tilting at windmills.
