International bestselling author Douglas Coupland delivers a real time five hour story set in an airport cocktail lounge during a global disaster Five disparate people are trapped inside Karen a single mother waiting for her online date; Rick the down on his luck airport lounge bart. Just another terrific read This is ultimately an exploration on some of the bigger philosophical uestions on life what is this concept of time What happens before we re born and after we die And so on And Coupland does this with his innate lyrical language and his trademark wit The premise of the story is Five people all of whom end up in a Toronto Pearson airport lounge find themselves locked inside the lounge while the world around them implodes Oil prices instantly skyrocket and what follows is a sort of nuclear esue fallout as people lose their goddamn minds over the shortage of oil It s extremely prophetic in my mind I think Coupland brilliantly satirises the extremes to which humans will go when the world oil supply suddenly dries up and the prices sky rocket Perhaps he exaggerates the outcome but perhaps not I think he accurately assumes that the dominant religion on the planet are not the religions we commonly think of the dominant religion is the Almighty Dollar And as these five people grapple with this dangerous situation at hand they uestion the larger uestions about life as I suppose we all might at some point when the world inevitably falls apart around us But the topics which could be dark are palatable because he uses humour throughout And I enjoy Coupland s humour because it s smart but it s also rather dark at times My type of laugh Anyone who s read my reviews on Coupland know I rave about his writing He s simply a good writer So no remarks thereYann Martel on the back cover of this hardcover version I have blurbs In the future if people are curious about what it was like to live in our times in the early 21st century they will do well to read Douglas Coupland I think this accurately sums up how I feel
