I admit this is shallow and riddled with enough consumer product references to border on being some kind of ode to commercialism. (Though Gen-Xers are stereotypically shallow, distracted and obsessed with pop-culture) At any rate, it's pretty funny and zany. I like zany and the characters were likable. The title (a lyric from the Nirvana song Smells Like Teen Spirit) is what made me buy this book, which includes a very bizarre yet conveniently placed plot line devoted to Kurt Cobain. I bought this book, about a couple of totally scatterbrained lunatics trying to their find their way through the professional and personal crossroads they encounter, while ashamedly hiding it behind the other items I bought that day. But I've since reconciled myself to that fact that not every book you read has to be profound. Sometimes they can resemble television and you won't go to artistic hell for it.
