Summary
Bit Rot the book is a fascinating meditation on how we try to make sense of our shifting consciousness. Coupland, just like the Internet, mixes forms to achieve his ends. Short fiction is interspersed with essays on all aspects of modern life. The result is addictively satisfying for Coupland's established fan base, hungry for his observations about our world, and a revelation for new readers of his work
