Shawn has such a wonderful imagination for how the world could be under slightly different circumstances. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Doppelgänger. During one of the busiest weeks in recent memory I found myself making time to read--finished it in 4 days! Modern technology is already beginning to change the world in ways that most of us have only imagined when we go to the movies. A lot of the technology we see in movies is not actually so far out of reach! Some of it already exists and is simply not cost effective enough to mass produce... Someday soon, we'll all have access to tools we only dream about today. I love entering into an imaginary world that operates under slightly different rules than the one that we live in. It gives an insight into human nature and the integrity of our character when we imagine the world as it might someday be. When the world changes as fast as it does now, it's exciting to think of how different our lives will be in 10 years. Mr. Stern has created an addicting thriller here with plenty food for thought for the years to come. Who knows? Maybe we all do have doppelgängers somewhere out there that look exactly like us but live very different lives. What would you do if you met the other you? I found myself thinking about how we perceive ourselves as part of our culture and how distracting it would be to have such a profound inner conflict about my own identity. Imagine what it would be like to have to impersonate another version of yourself! So many fascinating questions to ponder and such a thoroughly enjoyable read--pick this one up, you'll be glad you did!
This is a shorter book than what I'm used to reading. But Doppelganger never lets go of your interest, even in the slow moments. Meanwhile, the author doesn't get too sidetracked or distracted by mundane details. It's a true thriller novel with bank robberies and fist fights with a taste of science fiction that leaves you wondering what modern technology could really create.
Wow! Great book, original plot & a fast paced thriller. This is a book you won't want to put down.
