jpod by Dougla Coupland

Since this is the most recent book I've read, why not post this.

Overall a good book, if you like Coupland you'll probably enjoy this.

(SPOILER ALERT)














A few things I didn't like though:

- The random printout pages, ie the first 10,000 digit if Pi, I guess I really ddin't "get it"

- The overuse of Coupland himself as a character, the first few refrenecs were really well done and funny, but the parody got too ridiculous later on.

pretty much ditto to your review. I liked it, but got irritated by coupland inserting himself too prominently into the novel & also the waste of pages to be clever.
