3 of 5 HAL 9000 Stars – Alan Lennox and the Temp Job of Doom by Brian Olsen.

Temp workers suck. Everyone knows this. Every big company has a big mainframe computer which is perfectly aware at how much the temp workers suck. Because, all temp workers do is fuck around all day. They check facebook. They play stupid fucking video games, instead of actually doing any work.

This book is about one such mainframe computer which has had enough of its stupid goddamn temp workers. So it starts mind-controlling its long-term employees, making them kill off those useless fucking temps.

Sounds like an interesting premise, right? Well, not so much. See, most of this book is stupid bullshit temp worker horseshit. People fucking around, not doing any work, and just being boring little shits. And going to the fucking bar with their friends, chatting about how stupid and useless they are.

Sure, there are several murders, here and there. But, nobody really knows why. All they know, for the first 80% of this book, is that people at this huge corporation are going slightly insane. They’re not themselves. We don’t find out that they’re mindless drones, controlled by the evil mainframe, until the last 20% of the book.

And then, like a fucking Scoobie-Doo episode, the evil mainframe finally reveals herself, through one of her trusted drones. She corners the fucking useless temp cunts in an office, and spews her whole goddamn evil plan. Along with the standard “And I would have gotten away with it too, if not for you useless fucking temp workers!”

It was actually an interesting story, in the end. But it wasn’t a 312 page story. It was maybe worth 100 pages, at best. Because there’s just too much bullshit filler, with stupid 20-something cunts partying it up and wasting everyone’s fucking time.
