    One thought on “Six Wakes”

    1. This is a SF closed room murder mystery Six characters, six viewpoints, and a truly cool SF twist of constant cloning and memory re investment Resurrection But instead of losing us on the immediate lack of consequences because our murdered peeps keep coming back, we re dealt a hand where whole personalities can be hacked as easily as memories, and these poor saps all have richly criminal lives before they were chosen to be taking a long space boat ride to another star Hence, closed room Claustro [...]

    2. My original review somehow got deleted Here it is again 3.25ish stars.This is a fun thriller mystery generation ship near future philosophical debate book All of these elements are thrown in but there s too much going on for Lafferty to flesh any of them out sufficiently Part of it wants to be fun and kooky and another part wants to be taken seriously Regardless, it s a fast paced escapist pleasure ride and sometimes that s just what the doctor ordered The format of the book is great six clones [...]

    3. 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2017 02 14 A crew of a compromised ship wake up to confusion and murder, with no memory of what came before It s not exactly a new premise, which is why when I first picked up Six Wakes, I thought I knew what I was in for a mindless space adventure thriller, with a bit of mystery thrown in perhaps Turns out, I was wrong Oh sure, the book had a little bit of this and a little dash of that, but it was also than the sci fi popcorn fare I had expected [...]

    4. 4.5 stars A really excellent mystery in space The clone crew of a generational ship awake in freshly cloned bodies to find that they have been murderedbut none of them has any memory of the last 25 years they have crewed the ship together A wonderful character driven story that delves deep into the question of personhood I don t normally read mysteries, but I found this one to be a real page turner.

    5. I always find it a bit tricky to review mystery novels As a staunch anti spoiler fanatic I often err to the side of not giving too much away, but that does run the risk of leaving reviews of the books, especially the good ones, a bit bare Fortunately this book is also science fiction so there is plenty to dig into in that sphere.I have always maintained that good science fiction isn t about space ships and lasers and aliens though those qualities are always welcomed Good science fiction is about [...]

    6. It is forbidden to kill therefore all murderers are punished unless they kill in large numbers and to the sound of trumpets VoltaireMur Lafferty, an American author, has penned an intriguing science fiction thriller called, Six Wakes that centers around a spaceship carrying six crew members, where each one wakes up as a clone with no memory or record of what happened or who killed them, but only with the memory of dying And as their bloody bodies floated around the space ship under zero gravity [...]

    7. Think And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie, only with cloning chambers.It s been a bit since I ve enjoyed a sci fi mystery quite possibly not since Leviathan Wakes Lafferty has written a closed room murder mystery with an accessible sci fi twist, hopefully pleasing mystery and sci fi fans alike, as long as they can survive the cloning and time shifts.Cloning was invented hundreds of years ago, after people discovered they could mind map personality and memories at a given point in time an [...]

    8. Six new clones wake from their cloning vats to a scene of mass murder The victims being the clone s predecessors There is no one else on board the starship, so the murderer must have been one of them, but the clones have no memory of it So with a potential murderer on board and ship a victim of sabotage, the race is on to find out what s going on.This book postulates a set of draconian rules around cloning of humans the Codiciles that has created two types of people, normal humans and nearly imm [...]

    9. Mur Lafferty s Six Wakes has an intriguing setup six clones wake up on a mid journey colony ship to find their previous incarnations brutally murdered and discover that their memories have been sabotaged and their personalities hacked as they try to get to the truth of what happened The novel is a generically fun and pleasurable read, but has one major design flaw Lafferty plays her cards too close to the vest when it comes to her characters the plot follows everyone but endears us to no one, le [...]

    10. 4.5 stars I read about this book in an email newsletter I have never heard of this author, but I m glad I read it anyway It was fantastic I was hooked from the first page The six clone crew of a generational space ship awake in new clone bodies and find their own previous bodies murdered and no memory of the last 25 years That s basically the first page of the book This is a action packed murder mystery in space, and if you read sci fi there s a good chance you ll like this one I suspect there w [...]

    11. 4.0 Stars Video Review youtu Ne7ad1KpN8UThis is a fantastic, suspenseful science fiction mystery novel that balances intrigue, excitement and the ethical challenges that emerge with technological advancements The premise behind this novel is fantastic Essentially, the author designs a futuristic version of the traditional closed room mystery by placing the story on an isolated ship in deep space with a very small crew This is such a refreshing take on the traditional mystery setup The novel star [...]

    12. 4 1 2 stars for me this was such a fun book, kept me in the edge all the time while i was reading This is basically a who done it mystery but set in space, throw in technology far above ours, clones, a mysterious AI computer , a killer who might have forgotten his her reason to kill everyone on board on the loose ,and a ship crewed by criminals who don t know who either of them was before they met on the ship , but are connected in a way that they won t find out till the end.d what an end The bo [...]

    13. English on the blog review reviewed girotix 2017 Espa ol rese a en el blog girotix 2017 Three and half stars.Six characters, all clones, wake up in a spaceship and they discover six corpses their former clones that have been murderedIn other words, the novel is an intrigue about a puzzling multiple murder, but also a great speculation about a society in which cloning is legally and illegally possible not spoilers here, this is seen in the firsts pages.Precisely, one of the strengths of Six Wakes [...]

    14. Crime mystery in space with clones indeed, I couldn t resist either.Suspenseful and compelling, the story grabbed me early on I particularly liked the way the narration was structured, giving voice to each of the 6 characters, following them in this claustrophobic situation while charting their past, piece by little piece, each shedding a different light on the whole picture.The world Lafferty offers us is a complex one too, where the very existence of clones, and the technology that has permitt [...]

    15. Six Wakes starts off with a unique scene of murder in a spaceship 6 clones wake up to find their previous selves murdered in baffling ways that they have no memory of, due to a hack in their memory Cue a series of who did what, accompanied with overused tropes and a clumsy attempt at writing group dynamics in an enclosed space The characters were rather flat their backstories are interesting but their personalities and motivations contrived and unnatural , which was a shame, because this set up [...]

    16. What a great book, full of compelling characters involved in a locked room mystery on steroids Memory loss, technology, ethics, religion, revenge, and so much are all thrown together in this fast paced read Had a busy day yesterday but all I wanted was to find a quiet corner, drink coffee, and finish my book I loved Maria, Hiro, Joanna, IAN, and the crew of the Dormire Strap in, you are in for an exciting ride Very highly recommended.

    18. 3.5 starsI really wanted to like this than I did The concept is so interesting Six Wakes is basically an Agatha Christie novel in space Six people wake up on a spaceship freshly cloned Their previous incarnations have been murdered, and they are the only people awake on the ship So they have to solve their own murders knowing that it s than likely that one of them is a killer Oh, and they all have criminal backgrounds, but none of them know what crimes the others have committed in the past Plu [...]

    19. Six Wakes is billed as a sci fi thriller and murder mystery, but the thrill was on the mild side and the mystery reveal was disappointing The sci fi aspects of the story were interesting and thought provoking, but for me the sci fi elements couldn t make up for lackluster plotting.The premise for Six Wakes is that a small crew is piloting a generation ship on its way to Earth s first non Lunar colonization, taking with them hundreds of people and the supplies to build a home on a new planet That [...]

    20. 4.5 stars Right from the start, I was sucked into the mystery of this story It s the perfect set up, right You have a crew of clones, all trapped together on a space ship, all waking up together at the same time, finding their former bodies floating around the room dead Which clone is the killer Will they kill again The claustrophobic nature of this story adds the right amount of tension and suspense this story needs The strength of this novel also lies in the philosophical and ethical discussio [...]

    21. Wow, what a book It s full of surprises and twists, and I love how everything comes together The suspense doesn t let up, but it never feels forced The ending is fantastic, although it left me eager for I also appreciate the diversity in the book and that it raises ethical questions that are relevant in the real world I definitely wasn t expecting so much depth to the characters or the plot I highly recommend this for anyone who likes sci fi or mystery thrillers

    22. I love the thought of clones Able to be reborn into peak adulthood with your memories intact But things go wrong in this clone thriller with 6 clones waking up in new bodies, surrounded by their own brutally murdered previous bodies, and having to work out what happened before they are killed again.I enjoyed the slow unfolding of the plot and the 6 POV s as each clone gets to tell their story For some reason though the ending was anticlimactic They kind of just figure it out I guess, being set i [...]

    23. It was not common to awaken in a cloning vat streaked with drying blood Six Wakes is a mystery in space that reminded me a lot of the TV show Dark Matter and maybe a little of Voice in the Whirlwind by Walter Jon Williams The crew of a generational space ship wake up in new cloned bodies to find that they have all been murdered But none of them remember what happened Really there is than one mystery here Who killed them all, why that person killed them, and why they are all on this ship in the [...]

    24. Totally my kind of a sci fi murder mystery with well developed main characters, revelations that keep on coming, a whole lot of fun, violence and a salt squad that s been forced to team up while knowing anyone of them could be the killer and that no one is innocent to begin with FUCKING YES It goes beyond the mystery, though which I totally didn t see coming Not only all that, the discourse on political and cultural ramifications and the religious outlook on cloning and the concept of immortalit [...]

    26. I m giving this book a low rating, but I really enjoyed it and would recommend it as a beach read I just can t help being disappointed at the gulf between the premise and its execution.The setup humanity has divided itself between clones who transfer minds down the years, cloned body to cloned body and baseline humans who do not Aboard a generation ship bound for a distant star, a small crew is made of clones and an AI by necessity the ship will be in space too long for a human lifespan Bad news [...]
