Douglas Coupland’s homage to the exploding world of technology. I started this book in 1995 and couldn’t get into it. It was much better this time ’round. I actually found the book “quaint”. Imagine that email has just come into vogue and there is no such thing as Google. How did we ever survive?
The characters in the book are struggling with whether or not they have a life or if chasing $$ in the emerging tech field is their life. Reading this book will give you a good primer on how technological change began to pick up speed in the early nineties and helped pave the way for the mind blowing changes to communication we take for granted today.
