    This short novel was based on the usual dystopian world picture everyone is dead and at least until the few good survivors can get their act together and go back to the land they scavenge The differences were that it starts with the pregnant girlfriend of a teenage boy, both part of a very sociable crowd of kids, falling into a coma 17 years later she awakens with a 16 year old daughter and her friends have all grown up but not necessarily as their best selves and everyone else in the wo This short novel was based on the usual dystopian world picture everyone is dead and at least until the few good survivors can get their act together and go back to the land they scavenge The differences were that it starts with the pregnant girlfriend of a teenage boy, both part of a very sociable crowd of kids, falling into a coma 17 years later she awakens with a 16 year old daughter and her friends have all grown up but not necessarily as their best selves and everyone else in the world is dead The group have to learn that having everything the electricity never went off will not make you happy, you have to find meaning in life yourself This is an explication of one of my favourite quotes, Human beings do not live foreverThis little group of people had included a boy who had died young, before the coma, and he was the go between between the afterlife and the world with magical powers This was reasonably good and sustained would have been unique and very interesting However, the author dropped the ball at this point and the ending was crap If you aren t going to read the book, here s the ending view spoiler The whole world can be restored as it was and the girl can be the sacrificial offering to the gods who control life and death and slip back into her coma Her choice She sleeps hide spoiler.What a disappointment

    Here we go again what can I say Other than I fear that this book was a complete and utter waste of my precious time.Ok the beginning was reasonable, but the ending oh Lord the ending was not only extremely disapponting it also seemed to drag somewhat I am sure that there are many for whom this book is wonderful yet, for one, I cannot understand those plaudits nor the acclaim with which Douglas Coupland is held The story Was there a story there at all Really Honestly Here we go again what can I say Other than I fear that this book was a complete and utter waste of my precious time.Ok the beginning was reasonable, but the ending oh Lord the ending was not only extremely disapponting it also seemed to drag somewhat I am sure that there are many for whom this book is wonderful yet, for one, I cannot understand those plaudits nor the acclaim with which Douglas Coupland is held The story Was there a story there at all Really Honestly well, if there was, it was crap, crap, crap and then someFurther, the characters Who the hell were they I personally didn t get to know enough about any of the characters to care about them.At times I was unsure whether or not I had been transported to a parallel universe where all books were shallow, yet supposedly deep, self mocking, yet pretentiously inspired with wit and contemporary humour Whilst in this dreamlike nightmare I turned to the cover and saw that the title read Reader in a Coma and realised that indeed this was the truth of the journey that I was undertaking.I would not recommend this book to anyone even my enemies.Indeed I couldn t wait to finish this book and throw it away It really was that bad

    The first half of this book was a really interesting and well written novella about loss, grief, and loneliness and the rippling impact of tragedy I was even willing to suspend disbelief to allow the title character to against all odds wake from her coma after seventeen years But then the book just went off the rails The apocolypse was overly preachy, simplistic, and just silly I can hardly express how disappointed I was with the final 100 pages or so Without giving away too much plot, The first half of this book was a really interesting and well written novella about loss, grief, and loneliness and the rippling impact of tragedy I was even willing to suspend disbelief to allow the title character to against all odds wake from her coma after seventeen years But then the book just went off the rails The apocolypse was overly preachy, simplistic, and just silly I can hardly express how disappointed I was with the final 100 pages or so Without giving away too much plot, I ll say that the very end was rather touching, but didn t come close to making up for the utterly ridiculous sci fi turn that the book took

    I actually started this book two years ago while in New York City with my ex boyfriend oddly, it still smells like his apartment two years later I read a third of it then when he was at work and it was too cold to venture outside and set it aside as things got busy and life got kind of serious for a while I picked it up on Friday night with 200 pages to go and a Young s Double Chocolate Stout in hand and settled in for some reading I was done an hour and a half later Now, I m the cheapest d I actually started this book two years ago while in New York City with my ex boyfriend oddly, it still smells like his apartment two years later I read a third of it then when he was at work and it was too cold to venture outside and set it aside as things got busy and life got kind of serious for a while I picked it up on Friday night with 200 pages to go and a Young s Double Chocolate Stout in hand and settled in for some reading I was done an hour and a half later Now, I m the cheapest date around, tipsy one beer in, drunk after two, and I can t tell you if it was the stout or the book talking but it was incredibly moving I can see exactly why some people wouldn t enjoy Coupland, he s so damn earnest By the end of Girlfriend in a Coma, I was a bit teary and entirely hopeful for humanity as a whole In a book about a group of aimless friends who fall apart after their friend goes into an inexplicable coma at 17, we see the end of the world Rather, we see the world ended by humanity s lack of concern for it andimportantly, themselves It s part cautionary tale, something that I can see those who posethan feel rolling their eyes at, but it s also entirely a call to remember what s important The small, the magnificent, the screaming clarity of being alive, really alive Two days later and sober, I still feel the pull to ask , to do , to enjoyso I m going to give this one to Coupland instead of the chocolate stout

    I REALLY loved this book, and it went to many different places than expected It was a combination of genres, and despite being written in 1997 or so, FELT very immediate I have a lotto say, but I am currently listening to an audiobook on my headphones and find it hard to write whilst listening to a different book at the same time YesI might have a problem when it comes to my voracious reading Jen from Quebec 0

    From what I ve read, this seems to be the least popular of Coupland s novels Although Coupland fans are weird among his devotees, there s the least amount of agreement about what constitutes a good Coupland book that I ve ever seen I can definitely see why, although there were things I enjoyed about it The problem, I think, is that it feels like several books mushed together there s the Jared the ghost plot similar but less effective than dead Cheryl s narration in Hey Nostradamus , th From what I ve read, this seems to be the least popular of Coupland s novels Although Coupland fans are weird among his devotees, there s the least amount of agreement about what constitutes a good Coupland book that I ve ever seen I can definitely see why, although there were things I enjoyed about it The problem, I think, is that it feels like several books mushed together there s the Jared the ghost plot similar but less effective than dead Cheryl s narration in Hey Nostradamus , the late 70s vs 90s plot, the actual girlfriend in a coma plotand just when you re adjusting to all of that, there s the post apocalyptic plot It s too much, and it really fails to come together, not just logically not something I m looking for in a Coupland novel but emotionally and that is something at which he normally excels So, yeah it s a mess Not a I regret reading this mess, but as all of the really good bits are pretty much replicated in his other works, it does feel kind of extraneous I mean, Coupland s written something like ten novels and a bunch of non fiction, so unless you re a completist which I am there s really no reason to read this particular book

    It seems very strange that I ve never read Douglas Copeland before Maybe I did but I forgot Anyway, I got this at the Brokelyn Book Swap last month and I can t pick it up without the Smiths song digging into my head, which is fine now but will probably get really old really fast I unfortunately took like a two week break from this book to read Bone, which is especially shitty because I was less than twenty pages from the end of Girlfriend in a Coma when I decided to do that So n.b., boo It seems very strange that I ve never read Douglas Copeland before Maybe I did but I forgot Anyway, I got this at the Brokelyn Book Swap last month and I can t pick it up without the Smiths song digging into my head, which is fine now but will probably get really old really fast I unfortunately took like a two week break from this book to read Bone, which is especially shitty because I was less than twenty pages from the end of Girlfriend in a Coma when I decided to do that So n.b., books if you are so uncompelling that I will start another book when I am literally within spitting distance of finishing you, we are probably not very good friends This is another one of those books I feel bad for disliking I kind of think this is considered a cult classic or something And I know lots of smart people who like it, or him, anyway For my part, I couldn t stop thinking of Brett Easton Ellis, that one book where all the twenty somethings do a bunch of coke and fuck each other Or maybe that s all of his books.Anyway, I wish I d known to read this in high school, or early college, when this sort of post apocalyptic fantasy and wide eyed philosophical meandering would have probably appealed to me a lotAt this point I am a cynical bitch with little time for this sort of self involved frippery, I guess Sorry, Doug
