Foe by Iain Reid


Isn’t this cover just gorgeous? I have had this book on my radar for awhile and was so excited to be approved to read it!

Thank you Gallery and netgalley for allowing me to read this in exchange for my honest review.

Junior and Henrietta are a married couple living out in the middle of nowhere and that’s how they like it. They never get visitors until one day, a strange man dressed in business attire comes up to their house and tells them that Junior has won a lottery to be the first to travel to Space to start a new colony. Henrietta will have to stay behind. Junior is hesitant about this, but has no choice. He has to go. Henrietta won’t be alone as she stays behind. The man in the suit has a plan for her: he’s going to allow someone to stay with her, someone she knows quite well: an exact copy of Junior himself. Is Junior okay with this? Is he ready to go to space? Will Henrietta be okay with this? Will she love the clone more or less than Junior himself? What is this space colony really like?

There’s a lot more to this story, but I don’t want to give too much away. This is such a good book! I read the whole thing in one day. This has your brain rattling the whole time. It’s a wonderful, quick read that is full of suspense and mystery. You keep asking yourself questions throughout and, don’t worry, you’ll get the answers. WOW. What a cool movie this would be too! I loved this book so much and recommend it to everyone. I can’t wait to read it again and talk with friends about it! The ending blows your mind! I need to go back and read Iain’s other book right away.

5/5 Stars
