JPOD, like all of Coupland’s books, is an easy read. Easy words, easy sentences, a lot of pop culture references, funny, smart-ass characters, and the author himself populate the book. Critics have hailed jPOD as version two of Coupland’s earlier work, Microserf, but we reckon that hardly matters. As with several other critical blips about jPOD (the book’s confusing format for one; the spelling out of pi’s digits for pages on end, another) hardly matter because you will read this book. And even if you say you won’t, you’ll probably end up reading it anyway. With Coupland injecting thought-provoking nuggets of modern wisdom and strange out-of-this-world situations, how could you resist not reading jPOD?
