"Replica is a "flip book" that contains two narratives in one, and it is the first in a duology. Turn the book one way and read Lyra's story; turn the book over and upside down and read Gemma's story ... Lyra's story begins in the Haven Institute, a building tucked away on a private island off the coast of Florida that from a distance looks serene and even beautiful. But up close the locked doors, military guards, and biohazard suits tell a different story. In truth, Haven is a clandestine research facility where thousands of replicas, or human models, are born, raised, and observed. When a surprise attack is launched on Haven, two of its young experimental subjects--Lyra, or 24, and the boy known only as 72--manage to escape. Gemma has been in and out of hospitals for as long as she can remember. A lonely teen, her life is circumscribed by home, school, and her best friend, April. But after she is nearly abducted by a stranger claiming to know her, Gemma starts to investigate her family's past and discovers her father's mysterious connection to the secretive Haven research facility. Hungry for answers, she travels to Florida, only to stumble upon two replicas and a completely new set of questions"--From publisher's website.… (més)

I found this book to be a little dry. I think lots of people were excited for this book because of the format where on one side is one girl's story and then you can flip it over for the other story. I think this is an interesting format but I read a book with a similar format called [b:Sincerely, Sophie; Sincerely, Katie|7237471| Sincerely, Sophie; Sincerely, Katie|Courtney Sheinmel|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1347246534s/7237471.jpg|8159955] and I own a book called [b:Only Revolutions|40152|Only Revolutions|Mark Z. Danielewski|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1285310946s/40152.jpg|892647] by [a:Mark Z. Danielewski|13974|Mark Z. Danielewski|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1348252837p2/13974.jpg] who wrote house of leaves which also has a similar format, so this idea wasn't was new or exciting to me as it may have been to some people. As far as the actual story goes I thought it had a lot of potential to be interesting but I was often a little bored while reading it. None of the things that were supposed to surprise me every really did, I didn't think that either of the main girls, Gemma and Lyra, really ever had a chance to develop strong personalities which lead to me not really enjoying either of their characters. I read this book flipping back and forth after each chapter which I think did work fairly well and I really have no interesting in re-reading this book using a different method though someone else could choose to just read one side straight through and then switch to the next and I don't think much would be lost. I think if you do read it that way start with Lyra's side, just because I found her story to be more boring so it might be better to end the book on a stronger note and read Gemma's side second. There was also a lot of insta-love in this book and that is something I really don't like and the author also sort of included a love triangle so that is two different relationship tropes that I really do not enjoy crammed into one book. Overall I thought this was definitely an interesting concept for a book but I don't feel like the format added anything very interesting to the story and like I said I've seen books like this before. The switching perspectives weren't too repetitive or anything but it didn't add anything to the story either. I may read the next book in the series but this book didn't leave off on a cliffhanger or anything so I'm not dying to find out what happens next or anything. definitely just an average book. ( )

I enjoyed this two for one book. One side is Lyra's story, her life as a replica, kept on an island, for medical experimentation, told she isn't human. The other side is Gemma's, who's lived a sheltered life of luxury, isolated by social cruelty, feeling alien. The stories interconnect in interesting, yet implausible ways, the coincidences that set up the overarching story line are a little hard to take. Gemma just happens to find the right person to get her to Haven, which she's just found out about? Most of them are on Gemma's side of the story, pushing the series starter along. But it is definitely a starter with a cliff hanger ending--lots more questions at the end than at the beginning. If you like clone stories, this one is one you will want to read.

I did not read this in alternating chapters, I read Lyra's story then Gamma's. If you want me to read the chapters alternating--don't make me flip the book, I don't want more than one bookmark. ( )

I hesitated between 3 and 4 stars but overall I really enjoyed the book. Replica very much felt like only half the story that has to be told, so I'm really glad there's a sequel. Otherwise, it would've been very unsatisfying. ( )

This review is also featured on Behind the pages: Replica

The only life Lyra knows is the one locked behind Haven’s walls. There are endless rounds of needles and medicine, tests and doctors. She lives with other replicas, humans created from the cells of their duplicates. To watch another replica die is just another day to Lyra. When the chance to escape arises, Lyra is thrown into a world she has no idea how to survive.

Gemma lives a sheltered life, with parents who are afraid she is made of glass. As a child, she endured countless surgeries to stay healthy, and grow into the young woman she is now. She’s always been annoyed but understanding with her parents. Until Gemma begins to noise around in her father’s business and discovers a place called Haven.

I loved the dual stories told in Replica and the writing style Lauren Oliver chose. Readers can read the two stories in whatever order they want. But, instead of alternating chapters between the two characters I read Lyra first and then Gemma. Lyra’s story carried more of a sci-fi feel as she was brought up in the lab. A large part of her story revolved around what happened in Haven, and how different she felt being a replica. She was raised to believe she was an object; she wasn’t an actual person.

Gemma’s storyline was more of a typical young adult novel. She’s an insecure girl, sheltered and lonely. She’s learning about boys, and how she’s beginning to see them differently and is embarrassed about it. She is a bit vain, which did at times annoy me, but she grew up being teased for her surgery scars and being overweight. Of course, she sees the world in from the eyes of someone who thinks being skinny and pretty is better.

While there was some overlap in dialogue, which is to be expected, Lauren Oliver did a great job of keeping the two characters separate. They ran parallel stories that came together in moments of tension and helped propel the story forward. Even the way the two characters were raised ran parallel and created a great contrast to one another. This was another great book from Lauren Oliver, and I can’t wait to read the sequel duology. ( )

I think what Lauren Oliver set out to do here insofar as format is really interesting and original – Replica is a flip book, meaning that instead of having an integrated POV, you can literally flip the book over and start the other POV afterward… or read chapter-by-chapter. Reader’s choice! As an audiobook listener, the choice was made for me (all one, then the other) but I do appreciate the concept and think it was a cool idea.

The audiobook read’s Lyra’s POV first, then flips the book over to Gemma’s POV, so I’m going to address it like that… almost like two different stories that intermingle.

Lyra’s POV is interesting. In Lyra’s perspective, we see a little of Haven. We see a world where people are cloned in order to grow viruses and test medication. An illegal operation of a science-fiction (maybe even dystopian) sort, I thought that the world building in this half (44%, realistically) was promising. Had the story continued with the revelation of Haven and further development of the sci-fi elements, I think I may have enjoyed Replica. I’ve always found cloning to be an interesting dystopian element, but unfortunately, Lauren Oliver did not follow that storyline. In fact, I felt like Lyra’s POV stopped rather abruptly.

Gemma’s POV was such a contrast to Lyra’s. Gemma almost always describes herself in terms of her weight. She talks constantly about her lack of experience and how her weight keeps people from looking at her… generally, there was a lot of focus on this, and there’s a difference between representing a minority and making the whole thing unnecessarily uncomfortable by saying, “hey! look at his! an overweight MC!” over and over again. So immediately, as we’re getting into Gemma’s POV, I found myself a bit repelled by it. The deeper into the book I got, the less believable her situation seemed. She runs away to Florida and ultimately, her parents let it happen, and so does her best friend. She becomes quick friends with two different boys who are both attracted to her and speak to her in an uncomfortably familiar way, and there are no red flags about this? In fact, her first kiss and main romance is with a guy she herself calls “Pervy Pete”.

So, you know, that’s the quality of romance we’re working with here.

If I had started with Gemma’s POV, I absolutely would have DNF’d this book. But Lyra’s POV was interesting, with a lot of potential in world building. I kept waiting for some proper closure for Lyra, and that’s what kept me going through Gemma’s POV. But honestly? I found the ending unsatisfying. There were so many things that could have happened, so much more excitement, but I never felt we got plot closure.

So while the physical concept was cool, and plot had promise, I don’t particularly recommend Replica. It did not deliver. ( )

Lyra: On very still nights sometimes we can hear them chanting, calling for us to die.
