Campbell Scott's dry, pleasant, and piercingly sarcastic voice is spot-on for this novel. I highly recommend the audio version. I listened to it on my phone and I hardly paused until I had finished it.

We follow Paul O'Rourke, a dentist plagued with self-doubt and the contradictions of modern life as he discovers someone has stolen his online identity and made him a website, etc. He wonders if this social media savvy, fake version of himself isn't somehow doing better than he is in reality.

This book has sharply written dialogue and interactions, observations at once painful and hysterically funny, and a totally relatable struggle against the meaningless dredge of modern life.
