I am not a computer nerd, not even in the slightest technological sense, but I still enjoyed this book. It was just a story. A story of some young friends leading a simple life of work and play. Nothing major happens, because nothing really needs to. The life they lead is not hectic, nor dramatic. It's just... living. You're just following the life of an everyday computer nerd.
The only thing I didn't like, was the ending, only because Coupland decided that something should happen. I didn't feel like it should. After so many pages of nothing, throwing in... something, anything, didn't feel right.
