I have been reading again a bit more lately. Saturated from TV shows does that to you. The latest I have been reading is Douglas Coupland’s “Generation A“. It was not something I was looking for. I was looking just for something readable in the bookstore. And then I saw it.
Now, I could say I am a Coupland fan. Not hardcore, otherwise I would have known the realease date of this book. But enough to have read all of his books and never say no to a new one from his hand. And I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with this book. In my opinion he didn’t write a good book between “Microserfs” and “jPod”. Probably because I liked the style of those 2 books better.
And “Generation A” is more of that style again. Witty, funny and addictive. I had problems with putting down that book, so I read as often as I could. Which means people staring at me on the tram when I started laughing out loud. But who cares ? I had fun.
So go and get your copy. NOW! I am off to some more Murakami…
