I am participating in several reading challenges, one being the 100 Bestsellers List. Here is my review of The Klone and I by Danielle Steel.

The Klone and I* by Danielle Steel

Years and years ago I read several of Danielle Steel’s novels. I remember enjoying her themes of women struggling to combine career and family and love, trying to have it all. The women seemed strong and independent, and at the end of the day, the importance of family bonds was always the most important thing. At least that’s how I remember her novels. After reading The Klone and I, I have to wonder just how reliable my memory is.
Stephanie, the main character in The Klone and I was a disappointment in many ways. She is indecisive, inattentive, self-centered, and naïve. I suppose being naïve is not a bad thing, but reading about someone that naïve after the life experiences she had gone through – divorce, raising children – made her unbelievable. Maybe it was the trust fund that enabled her to go through life without seeming to really commit to life.
And speaking of unbelievable, shall we discuss Paul, the clone?
