Reviewer Comments for Human Races – Get Set…
“I think the idea Ron E. Fox is exploring is fascinating, and reminds me of Ishiguro’s Never Let Me Go/Remains of the Day. I genuinely enjoyed reading it very much! I read most of it in an evening as I wanted to read on.” – Fay Morrice. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
“Ron E. Fox is a thumping good storyteller! This is a very neatly constructed tale. I thoroughly enjoyed the book and found it very engaging and readable. Lots of lovely subtlety and sensitivity in his exploration of what everyday life might be like in the not too distant future.” – Melanie Savage. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
