5.0 out of 5 stars Best artistic response to the 21st century I've seen, May 5, 2010
This review is from: Other Lives HC (Hardcover)
Bagge really captures the eerie dichotomy in post-modern life -- the way the internet creates an alternate reality that swallows increasingly large parts of our lives while remaining invisible to those closest to us in our daily life.
The "virtual" lives of his characters are like the 90% of the iceberg that floats under the surface of the water and when reality crashes into virtuality, lives sink like ships. Powerful stuff.

I had to look up that word you used in your review: "dichotomy" and that word is perfect in context to help describe this fantastic story that Peter Bagge has created.
Perfect words that you have used!
