Reads: Dog Days

Dog Days is pretty funny in the beginning when it reads kinda like Douglas Coupland-lite with its loser coder hero, recently dumped by the hot girl from marketing and stuck in a huge software company grinding code for what is quickly becoming vapourware. Then the book pretty much veers off into some mob-cheating scam that seems a little incongruous with the beginning. It was the ending that really took the cake though, totally tacked on and dripping with so much schmaltz I was cringing as I read it.

The book apparently started life as an award-winning short story – it probably should’ve stayed that way.
