However, once things begin to unravel it's up to Billy to survive the horrors of a dinosaur island and make it back to his pal McGarnagle! Billy and the Clonesaurus tells the tale of William 790-6, a clone who lives in a town filled with other William clones, in a world filled with even more William clones. Each clone lives for exactly one year and on your 366th day of life you are slurried and a new iteration is sent into the world for the next year.

What I enjoyed immensely about the storytelling was that we learn about this world from William 790-6 (57 th iteration), who is learning it all himself. This reptile understandably freaks Billy out, since all animal life has been extinct for several generations of Williams.Dark, haunting, and blisteringly satirical, BILLY AND THE CLONEASAURUS is the story of one "man's" attempt to finally become an individual in a world of copies. When I first read what this book is about, I tought: oh no, this story will be too upsetting, because I can't imagine a world, where I must live with 6 billion identical clones of myself in the same planet, I mean what happens, when someone comes to me and tells "go fuck yourself, boy"—it would surely take decades, to complete the task, not to mention, I'm a gentleman, and so am I, so I would invite myself for a romantic dinner before the sexual intercouse, imagine the restaurant bills. I was also surprised by this because I wasn’t expecting the amount of depth that was woven into a relatively short book.

When an accident saves William 790 from this fate, he begins to think about the meaning of his life, and so his adventure begins. Bit darker than I was expecting but I sure liked it as an allegory for living a repetitive lifestyle surrounded by others shaped by the same media and education as yourself as well as just a straightforward tale of clone life on a large scale. The world is beautifully crafted, making it seem so very plausible that this system would work, and maintain itself perpetually. Billy and the Cloneasaurus is a wonderful story highlighting current issues in our society, and is a warning for what may come.It is not based on a Michael Crichton book, Steven Spielberg, relinquished directing duties, Stan Winston’s dinosaurs remain intact, and introduces the Spinosaurus.

If you assume they have the same level of greed (you know, because they’re clones) then I would have expected that the clones wouldn’t want to spend so much of their money. 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. Clones, dinosaurs, and a corrupted "Williamerica" paint a frightening alternate reality where the idea of individuality and capitalism are distorted to the nth degree.This is a post-apocalyptic sci-fi world that is filled with clones, 6 billion copies of an unassuming, bland, and unremarkable man named William.
