Pretty good but no great shakes,
This review is from: Shampoo Planet (Paperback)
I'm a big Douglas Coupland fan, this being his 8th book that I've read.
For some reason this one left me a bit cold. It's still witty, very well observed and wry, but all the others have managed to hook me in emotionally some how. This one didn't. The character of Stephanie seemed very forced and I never really believed in her 100%. Maybe he was trying too hard after the phenomenon that was Generation X?
It's not awful though. If you're a Coupland fan and like me will read all his work whatever the reviews then you're probably going to be slightly disappointed. If you're thinking of 'getting into him' I'd start with Gen X, Girlfriend in a Coma, Microserfs or Hey Nostradamus - all of which blew me away for different reasons.
