The Billionth Monkey is the hilarious new weird fantasy novel from Richard Kaczynski.
In this blog, I will walk through the book and, post by post, explore its clues, Easter eggs, and references to popular and nerd culture. Some references are obvious, while others are what Mystery Science Theater 3000 might call "1% jokes."
SPOILERS AHEAD. If you haven't read the book yet, you may want to explore the other pages in the nav bar below.
The dialogue on pages 166–172 of The Billionth Monkey references a host of popular/cult movies. Did you catch them all? As I wrote in a previous post, everyone I know quotes books, tv shows, movies, and song lyrics in normal conversation, and I wanted to make that part of how my characters interacted. Here are the film references in these seven pages:
I copy, Gold Leader: From the climactic assault on the Death Star in Star Wars (i.e. Episode IV: A New Hope , 1977).
Ich luge bullets: Spoken by J.D. (Christian Slater) in Heathers (1988):
