Avid audiobook addict!
I'm a geek, so I kind of tolerated it, but most normal people would just skip it in disgust. The author is incredibly self-indulgent. His long lists of unrelated words that he thinks are "clever", which could be just skipped over easily in printed format, are incredibly annoying when trying to fast-forward past them in audio format. The dialogue and characters are utterly unbelievable. Unless you're a huge geek and Douglas Coupland fanboy don't bother.
