The Original by Brandon Sanderson and Mary Robinette Kowal ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Read September 2020
For my full thoughts, see my September 18th, 2020 Friday Reads.

This is was an easy and fun story. It was creative and exactly what I was looking for at the moment. This follows a women who wakes to find shes been cloned and tasked with finding her original self so that she can be brought to justice for a crime she committed.

This is a futuristic world where people have nanites to keep them young and healthy, but they also help store your memories. In the event of death, people can be brought back.

The story uses our main protagonist as a means to explore the morality and logistics of this type of utopia (or dystopia), and that is really where it shines. MRK and Sanderson do an excellent job creating an exciting book with a fascinating conversation. 

4/5 Stars
