Another good book

I'm supposed to be writing, but instead I'm procrastinating. Just finished Hari Kunzru's novel Transmission and wanted to say a few good words about it here.

I've been scanning some reviews, and they're mixed, but honestly, I loved this book. Couldn't put it down, in fact. It's about a hapless and pitiable Indian hacker who unleashes a devastating computer virus on the world. Also includes entertaining subplots that satirize marketers, celebrities and hipsters. I found it timely (though it came out in 2004) and entertaining. And funny. Anybody else read it?
