it was ok
bookshelves: canadia, humour, sci-fi-fantasy
Read in December, 2009

Hmmm. Unfortunately, this effort was a little hard to connect with a lot rehashed in terms of Coupland tropes and attitudes.

The story never really grabbed me. I got the ideas that he wanted to explore, but they just didn't have the "umph" I've come to expect from him.

Premise is that all of the bees have disappeared from the world, and then 5 people are stung in 5 different countries. Of course, they are then captured and analysed to understand why they were picked.

There are some funny moments, particularly for the one character who broadcasts his jackoffs via the Internet. He's quite a character...
