Does anyone have good comparative points/notes on these novels? And also what context is there for NLMG?

You're doing Science&Society right? Just use that as a general theme to compare them by. For example, the way society mistreats the creature and then in NLMG how the clones are seen as inferior, that rumour about madame being "scared" of them etc

For context, just look at scientific advancements like Dolly the sheep being the first cloned mammal. Just think outside the box for context. I'm looking at ethics/morals and wider attitudes to cloning during that time vs today & how and if attitudes have changed ect. Also, have a look at the conventions of dystopian novels to get a better understanding of NLMG.

I'm dreading this exam

Have a feeling it might be about education (or maybe I'm just hoping it will be about that)
Possibly rebellion?

I was wrong, and it was horrible.

'use of a range of locations'... what was that about?!
