Review: jPod



jPod by Douglas Coupland

Admittedly, I've not read much Coupland, aside from the brilliant and funny Microserfs, published in *gasp* 1996. However, this sounded like Microserfs for the new generation, so I grabbed it when my YA librarian returned it.

She wasn't a big fan of the novel, so I was a bit skeptical, but in fact, I thoroughly enjoyed the characters, the silliness and the writing, even if the plot wasn't the most brilliant or attention-grabbing. However, I place more stock in genuinely laughing out loud than I do in a twisty and turny plot.

Smart and snappy writing, deliciously flawed characters, and a quick read - recommended from me!
