Michiko Kakutani reviews Alex Garland's "The Coma" in the NYTimes.
In a nutshell: "Though "The Tesseract" and to a lesser degree "The Beach" were also concerned with large, philosophical themes and narrative innovations, their fast and furious plots gave those ambitions much needed ballast. "The Coma" is all ideas and technique with too little character or plot to keep these grander notions grounded."
So I guess that doesn't mean it's too good. I still think maybe I should have that copy of The Tesseract last week. Oh well.
