We do not receive compensation for our reviews, other than the copy of the book to read for the review. I listened to the audiobook of this one and the narration by Steve Rimpici was perfect for the book. 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.

As usual with Kozeniewski, the book is peppered with humor, imaginative concepts, and plenty of inside jokes and cultural references. You’ll see the scary similarities in the world we live in to those elements in the book that are the trappings of control. I went into the book blind to every detail except that the title grabbed me and that I’m a fan of Stephen’s work. Don't dwell too long on what's on the pages of this book or you'll find yourself questioning the motives of your employers and your own self-worth. 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.I think that the checkpoints in the first dinosaur crossway section inside the fenced area (the marked dinosaur zones on foot) don't work.

And yet, somehow, the narrative is engaging, interesting and exciting as Billy begins to answer some of the burning questions I, as a reader, wanted answered. I like Billy and the other characters, and seeing how, even though they were clones, they had their differences. I find it difficult to say I enjoyed the novel when I was so saddened by the end – but I did truly enjoy the journey overall.I wasn't very far into Billy when I realized that this was something else entirely---a unique dystopia that takes the biting satire of Ghoul to a whole new level. nurture point—that how you’re treated makes more of an impact in what you do rather than just genetics? Are we all just socio-cultural clones going through the motions and serving the powers that be all the time on a doomed train ride to personal and societal oblivion? In this the story, I think that Kozeniewski captured the drive for profitability at its most horrific level.

The show is set in the fictional town of Springfield and parodies American culture, society and television.The world is beautifully crafted, making it seem so very plausible that this system would work, and maintain itself perpetually. But even though I am not very good at speaking English Like other people as much as they can speak English I am just speaking Thai. 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. Hmm haven't encountered that one yet, but I have the build open as of typing so I'll look into it before releasing the update today. He goes to work every day in his boring insurance sales job, has the same thing to eat every night, catches the ball game with the other clones, sleeps, and gets up and does it all over again.

And like most dystopian stories (written by men) women are treated as an afterthought to the Grand Political Message or as mere accessories to the Crippling Male Angst that drives the subversive action to its conclusion. This book reminded me a lot of Huxley's classic sci-fi novel, but with more black humor (and a more straightforward storyline! I never like to say too much about a book because I prefer to go into books with as little info as possible, but I highly recommend this one! The team lead becomes a little overbearing, and the psychologist likes to ask cryptic, probing questions, but at heart, each is still a William.Personalized advertising may be considered a “sale” or “sharing” of information under California and other state privacy laws, and you may have a right to opt out. Until, of course, William 790 starts discovering more about the world he lives in and questioning if there is such a thing as free will or if he's just part of someone else's master plan.
