Review of Life After God


From Library Journal

Coupland's novels (e.g., Shampoo Planet, LJ 8/92) appeal to young, confused, and disenfranchised waifs who like to characterize themselves as Generation X. This audiobook features two complete stories selected from the print version and read by the author. In ``One Thousand Years,'' a young man flees to the wilderness in the wake of an existential crisis, while ``Things That Fly'' tells of lost love and the death of Superman. Coupland's endearing Canadian accent will be a welcome change to listeners accustomed to the usual Brit or Yank reader. Yet his monotone delivery, however appropriate to his characters' weary internal ramblings, is at times difficult to savor. For large popular collections.-Mark Annichiarico, ``Library Journal''
