Depressing but true and brilliant., 10 Sept. 2000
This has to be Coupland's best work. The book is extremely depressing throughout.The loss of the best years of a young girls life. However when she wakes up the true story in the novel starts. She is amazed to discover just what the world has becomed. Coupland makes the closet possible to an Ailen's view of modern life on earth. The novel tries to show that we are wasting our lives. That we are chasing things that don't matter while the things that do slip away. Read this book. Enjoy it. Then change your life.
