4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Coupland, February 7, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Eleanor Rigby: A Novel (Paperback)
"All the lonely people..." is the line behind this Beatles titled novel by Douglas Coupland. Liz Dunn is a lonely, overweight, and seemingly non-descript woman to whom rather extraordinary things happen. Her story, told with Coupland's style of post-modern funk, is pretty unbelievable; however, it is one that takes readers on a wild ride across the continent and back again.

Within the novel, we meet Liz's long lost son, her seemingly average family and co-workers, and her European one night stand. The story is rather mundane, but I give it 4 stars for Coupland's succinct and thought provoking ideas on loneliness. This novel is no Microserfs or Hey Nostradamus! but it's an interesting tale of life, loss, erratic behavior, and ultimately, isolation. This is a good novel for an afternoon on the couch, for certain.
