My Thoughts: Microserfs - Douglas Coupland


This has always been one of those books that I felt that I should read but never fancied it, when I saw it offered as a Bookring on Bookcrossing I thought I'd have a go. AND I really enjoyed it!


I don't like computers, wouldn't know how to prgram one and wouldn't know Star Trek from Doctor Who, but despite all the techiness of this novel I got sucked into their little world. Ultimately, this is a novel about twenty-somethings striving for promotion and getting lost in the world of work. They strive for the 'life' others have but never seem to escape their circular lives, then things start to change...

If you have read this book feel free to comment or leave a link to your own review.

This is probably my least favourite Douglas Coupland novel, but I still like it a lot. I just love everything he does. I hope you enjoy the rest of his work! My very favourites are Eleanor Rigby and Life After God.
