Fiction Review by The Gravedigger

This Rage of Echoes (2007) Author: Simon Clark

The start of this book is freaky and had me hooked. A young guy named Mason is being chased by people who look exactly like him, people called "Echoes". The small group he's with understands what is happening, as the same thing is happening to them, but don't know the reason why. But he's had enough of running the past several weeks and decides to visit his mother and sister in his small home town. He gets a ride from a truck driver who resembles Elvis. But during the two hour drive the trucker begins to physically transform into Morgan, down to the 'Y' shaped scar he has on his hand. And once a person transforms they want to kill the original. He escapes, though he has to kill the truck driver.

But Mason brings this curse home with him. The town drunk is the first to transform and attack someone, leaving him with the blame - and then the doppelgangers come to his house and attack - and kidnap him and his family.

It's sort of like a zombie takeover, only with clones. Why is this happening? Is it a virus? Is Mason somehow causing this?

As good as the first quarter of the novel is it falls apart halfway through and none of the questions posed are satisfactorily answered. There's a sci-fi, mumbo-jumbo explanation and it's such a departure from where I thought this was going that the book lost me. Also, author Clark tends to repeat things too much, such as the description of Mason's imaginary friend, who happens to be a two-thousand year old mummy. When I was finished with the book I was disappointed and felt cheated by the 'anything goes', 'whatever', type of ending.
