Would you clone yourself and harvest the clone for it’s organs once yours started to fail? And how about if that clone was a living, breathing, feeling human being?
Well, that’s what “The Island” is all about. Sort of. Think of it as “The Morality of Cloning, 101”, only with an explosion or some kind of insane car chase every two minutes. Oh, and a really hot female lead.

[image title=”rumlarge” size=”thumbnail” id=”337″ align=”right” linkto=”https://irrationale2.files.wordpress.com/2008/08/rumlarge.jpg” ]I’m a huge fan of the work of the late and great Hunter S. Thompson.
For those who don’t know, “The Rum Diary” is an early novel by Thompson that was written in the early 1960’s but was not published until 1998.
The story involves a journalist named Paul Kemp, who moves from New York to work for a small newspaper, The Daily News, in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Set in the late 1950s, the novel encompasses a tangled love story of jealousy, treachery and violent alcoholic lust among the American expatriates who staff the newspaper.
