About this deal

While the title might seem silly and the story starts off light, this book really touches on several topics and does so in an intelligent manner. Williams are the perfect workers and consumers - they work and spend, with nothing else in between and no capacity to question if there is something more they can be doing with their lives.

Hell, I was expecting some fun entertainment similar to Kozeniewski's BRAINEATER JONES; instead I got some fun entertainment with a commentary and emotion. It also makes the reader wonder, as the story unfolds, and as Will 790 moves into uncharted territory, if there is more going on than any of the Wills ever realize.While there is not much in common with Kozeniewski's other books, the same sharp writing style and easy flow is evident. I don’t want to pretend I’m something I’m not,’ 790 said, ‘but I’m tired of being what everyone expects me to be. The story is bleak, yet often humorous and the main character in Billy, is one that I would love to see even more of. Honestly, it was probably a real challenge to come up with nuanced voices that all sound very similar and yet can remain distinct in a conversation.

A tale of clones written in a unique style…hmmm this is beyond out of the box reading, try it, everybody's doing it. Again, something most of us have probably wondered as we yearn for that electric car, Dyson fan, newest iPhone, or whatever object of the moment is cool. While I feel the concept of the clones conveyed messages I assume the author wanted the reader to receive, I also feel that it left a couple of holes for me. You can't really go wrong with a game about dinosaurs, but still, the story need a beginning, a middle and an end.For example, everyone leaving work at the same time just to sit in traffic when leaving 20 minutes later would avoid the problem. Stephen Kozeniewski (pronounced "causin' ooze key") is a two-time winner of the World Horror Grossout Contest.

Add to that the fact that you live for only one year before you're sen to a machine that chops you up and feeds you to the next group of Williams being "born" that day. Alas, Stephen Kozeniewski’s world is filled with men named William in his satirical tome, Billy and the Cloneasaurus. Released in 2001, a lot of critics thought that this was a terrible film, more mindless than “The Lost World”. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Jurassic Park III” isn’t mindless, it is a lean and mean 92 minute ride that is fun and is in the spirit of Disneyland’s “Pirates of the Carribean” ride, with the caveat that “The pirates are trying to eat you.

Apu tells Skinner “ Oh you have got to be kidding sir, first you think of an idea that’s already been done, then you give it a title that nobody could possibly like” Apu criticism is cut midway through there is a clever progression that this lecture has been going on for a while Apu continues to cut down Skinner’s idea “ It was on the best seller list for 18 months, every magazine cover,” another cut to an exasperated Apu “ One of the better movies of all time sir. Billy and the Cloneasaurus sounds like a frivolous book from the title (an old Simpsons reference), but it is deeper than you'd imagine. I'm not sure if satires usually end in this manner but the ending is where I was slapped in the face that this is still a horror story. It never quite seemed to hit a big dramatic 3rd act the way I usually like, but there was something so… right about how this book played out.

It reminds me of 1984 or Fahrenheit 451, but it is supposed to – the novels are even referenced in the story. Etsy’s 100% renewable electricity commitment includes the electricity used by the data centers that host Etsy. And it makes you think about how a blind focus on the monetary things in life can drive us to lose focus on what’s really important. Through Billy and the Cloneasaurus it’s easy to see how a blind focus on bottom line numbers (profit) drives a mentality that employees should be mindless drones, doing only what they are told to do.And yeah, this is excatly what I said to me after copulating with myself, but there are sooo many clones to go. Billy and the Cloneasaurus is an entertaining black comedy about a world where everyone is a clone the same man and those clones are murdered and replaced once a year.
