Unfortunately, I'm inclined to agree with the opinions of the reviewers below, who were also expecting more from this novel. One-dimensional characters in a familiar plot, doesn't make for fun reading.

I would recommend this book because it has adventure, secrets, romance and more. A very good read.

Douglas Coupland is a great author. He pushes you to think about life as it is, were it is going and puts us in check with our values. In Miss Wyoming this theme is still their but not executed as well as Shampoo Planet or Girlfriend in a Coma. For those of you who have made this your first Coupeland work try something else.

I was so excited to read this book. I love Copeland's sense of humor and style. This was a little hard to follow. There was some parts that I found amusing though.

I have been a Douglas Coupland fan since Microserfs (one of my favorite novels) and I've watched in bewilderment as every book he has written since has not only paled in comparrison, but has been absolutely horrible. Unfortunately, Miss Wyoming is no different. The author does such a poor job in developing the characters in this book that I felt as though I was reading his personal notes that he would someday take and turn into a real novel. The storyline was hooked together with a bunch of unrealistic coincidences. The only virtue of this sad little book was its length... it is fairly short, so I didn't have to waste that much time getting through it.

i was so excited to read this book...i checked out ebay for advance copies...but i held back...then i was short on loot when it came out and had to borrow it from a friend...thank god i didn't buy it....without a doubt this is my least favorite coupland book...all the questions and the themes of his earlier works are watered down here....yes it's a quick read and at times entertaining, but for mr coupland it is definately sub-par...
