With the popularity of the television series Orphan Black, Gregory Pence has written about cloning. Gregory discussed many things from the ethics of creating clones, our fears, anomalies, identities, and the future of clones. Since Dolly, the first cloned sheep, everyone seems to have one opinion or another on clones. I feel that most people feel threatened by them in one sense or another, from what kind of a person/human being will they be to how they threaten the idea of being human from birth instead of coming from a laboratory. This book goes the distance for discussing each possible aspect of how clones can affect use. There is so much information and examples through the book to keep it from becoming dry. I really like how it ties back into the Orphan Black series, the season premier is today. That helps to keep me that much more interested. I admit that I have wanted to watch Orphan Black but have not gotten around to it. After reading this book I will definitely be starting Orphan Black. If you like this series I recommend you get a copy of this book. You will NOT be disappointed. I received What We Talk About When We Talk About Clone Club for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
