The Gospel According to Larry--Janet Tashijian

I just got around to reading this... I don't know why I hadn't before. I'm in the midst of summer reading program craziness... so no time for a proper review, but here's a quickie:

Josh Swensen uses his alter-ego Larry to philosophize about materialism and consumerism and why the world is bad. Larry's website "" becomes insanely popular and despite his original intentions he becomes the very thing he rants against--a "celebrity" at the center of consumerism.

I liked it--it was a quick read--I didn't find it "didactic" like some people did. The lesson was there, but I enjoyed the story too.
