im so excited for the story! billy is such a...NORMAL person, like i would be best friends with him. seriously.

What do you mean him being a NORMAL person. He is normal except for his being immortal..

Although I can't answer for Dr.JohnDee2010, I would interpret the comment as meaning that Billy the Kid is one character you can relate to, more so than other characters. He is a classic American hero, he's very much a human character with strengths and weaknesses, etc.

I agree. I probably relate to him better than I do the twins. I also relate to his history a lot more. He got in a lot of trouble for standing up for a friend who'd been wronged, and I've done that before. On a much smaller scale.

He is a very straightforward character, but I feel like he knows a lot more than he appears to.
I think it might be the opposite, Janus, He pretends NOT to know something.

.....I nearly typed "Iane", instead of Janus. My latin nerdiness terrifies even me sometimes.

I meant relatable. (is that a word?) Like I could meet him at a party and we'd be friends. but yeah, snaps on how much he knows. I feel like he's sorta I guess taken for granted? like he's there and everyones like "oh it's billy. well he's not even 100, nobody cares." except for black hawk, who knows how scary billy is. I mean, his name is Billy! Nobody born in the Renaissance or who helped Elizabeth plan annexation of America (like John) is going to notice a BILLY.

also, cedargirl, latin nerdiness is my friends obsession...clubs, girls, schools, etc so i loved that comment.

Yep, we all relate to him very well, and remember he's the only immortal human at a very early age, probably like our age..

lol yeah he would be a senior in college where I am. That's as old as my brother.
I do get the feeling that people are like "he's only 128, he's nobody" and he says in the book that he met Dee before and didn't like him, maybe that's why, because Dee acted like Billy was a little kid or something.

Yeah, they seemed to disregard Billy's presence...

Annoying may also apply to me, if it describes Billy

He survived!!!!! I was so worried. All through the bit when he and Black Hawk were trying to slow down the crab, and it was abvious he was going to do something heroic but really risky, I was on the edge of my seat, with my face about three inches from the book.
Still my favorite character of all time.

I thought his face-off with the Sphinx was awesome, because she's been threatening him since the Necromancer, and then it only took him five minutes to obliterate her.
And the part when he is talking about the guy in the red shirt in Star Trek who always dies was pretty funny, because it's ridiculously true. Seriously couldn't that guy wear a different color for once? couldn't the guy who always dies wear a purple shirt or something, jeez.

I agree, I LOVED the Star Trek conversation too, and the revelation that Mach was a Star Wars fan.

Are we sure Billy lives? I reeeeeally would like him to, but he was in pretty bad shape at the end of the book, even with Mach's aura helping him.

Billy survived. Mr. Scott confirmed it...

I normally do not answer direct story-related questions, but in this case I will - yes Aunt Agnes is still alive at the end of the story: aged, but alive.  And both Billy and Mac survived too!  They will have other adventures.

You never knew. That was his power. The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. And like that, poof. He's gone.
