In this gripping sci-fi thriller, genetically altered teens fight for survival in a near-future society that is redefining what it means to be human.Sixteen-year-old Jimi knows people change, but nothing could prepare her for what’s about to happen to her best friend, Del. Del is obsessed with becoming a chimera (ki-mir-a): a person who pays back-alley geneticists, known as ""genies,"" to illegally splice animal genes into their own. The resulting physical changes have scared lawmakers into drafting legislation declaring chimeras officially nonpersons—so when Del goes missing, Jimi is desperate to find him before he alters himself forever.As she tries to save him, Jimi must face down unscrupulous people and risk her own life—all while knowing that if getting spliced is the choice Del has made, it means he’s leaving her behind forever.
okay, i have to be honest. before receiving this book, i’d never heard of it, the author, or the publishing company. but i read the synopsis, and it sounded interesting enough, so i said to myself, sure! why not give it a try?
i started reading the book, and i was立即drawn in. spliced is set in a future version of america—not sure exactly what year, but it was super interesting seeing all this differences between the america i live in and the america the characters live in. the political issues in the book are definitelythought-provoking，and it’s crazy to think that everything that happens in the book could actually become possible one day, and that these issues could become issues we have to deal with.i do wish there was a little more world-building，虽然。很明显，他们对美国更加先进的技术，但我想知道事情是如何改变得这么厉害，因为它似乎并不像一个超级遥远的时间段。环境和社会显得那么不同，我只是认为这将是很酷的一点点更多的背景故事。
因此，人物。说实话，我喜欢吉米！i thought她的性格感到超现实，and she’s definitely very complex.the character development throughout the book is also really interesting，and i loved following jimi as she faced all these different obstacles. del’s character was also interesting, but i thought he was going to be more of a main character than he actually was. although the story and conflict revolve around him, he doesn’t actually show up much. but honestly, i didn’t miss out too much, because所有的侧面人物都只是如此真棒。我能说多少i LOVED rex??我也喜欢露丝和一些其他嵌合体的，我希望能看到更多他们都将在未来书（至少我认为/希望会有这个系列更多的书籍？）。
除了文字，我也很喜欢的情节。as some of you might know, i’m a senior in high school, and this is basically one of the busiest times ever.但我还是没能放下拼接，andthe more i read, the more i fell in love.the plot is so complex, and i didn’t think it was super predictable.the pacing is pretty much perfect，包括关系中的所有字符之间如何发展。我不爱有关情节的唯一的事情是在情节扭转端，说实话，我没有看到它在所有的到来。我感觉it was almost a little bit forced，我不认为这是必要的。但我仍然觉得很有意思！
TBH，这本书让我feelso many different情绪：愤怒在他们搞砸了家庭/父母，压力，因为我不知道发生了什么事，以德尔，在兴奋certain fluffy/romantic parts，当忧事情似乎不错，但仍有一书的还剩（我最糟糕的噩梦作为一个读者），休克时透露的剧情转折，和悲伤结尾。
总的来说,这本书有一些小问题，but i loved it。这只是so unexpectedly interesting and unique，我不能等待更多。如果你到反乌托邦，我绝对推荐拼接！you’re in for a crazy ride with a cast of amazing characters, and you won’t regret it.
