Douglas Coupland's cynicism is convulted and shallow and while I can see what some people can get out of his writing I see far more potential in reading "fin-de-siecle'' existentialist writers like musil, gombrowicz, broch, whom are terribly more interesting than Coupland with his cheap irony, and his gimmicky pseudo-post-modernism. Chuck Paliniuk also falls under this category. So while i was first disturbed by the amount of people calling this book boring, dismissing it as the problem of the reader, I now fully sympathize with their inability to appreciate coupland's writing.
There are too many terrific books to waste time on this overrated work.
