JPod by Douglas Coupland


This is a laugh-out-loud funny book about pod mates at a computer game company whose last names all begin with the letter J. Their office antics reminded me of the movie Office Space, but Coupland's writing style is what gives the book a freshness. Every few pages or so are random lists, such as all of the three letter words that are allowable in Scrabble plus one that is not. It makes for a fun read and a pretty clear window into office behavior. Check out the very cool website for this book - www.jpod.info

JPod is brand new and probably not easy to get from the library. Email me so we can communicate easier.
