Reading like an ADD-friendly afternoon spent at the computer, JPod is as much a work of contemporary art as it is a novel. Simultaneously relevant and irreverent, it takes a satirical look at workplace unhappiness and all of the bizarre elements that comprise mainstream North American culture. Bonus points to Coupland for shamelessly writing himself in as a character.
