Waste of Space is a fun and snarky story that entertains while making fun of the reality TV entertainment that some of us ;-) are addicted to! It is sarcastic, witty and over the top from start to finish! Complete enjoyment!
"Chazz: All right. What’s that in your hand? What are you drinking?
Hibiscus: [sips from a terracotta mug] Artisanal mud tea.
Chazz: What’s mud tea?
Hibiscus: It’s silt from the bottom of a top-secret bog in Manitoba, Canada. Steeped in water from that very same bog.
Chazz: What does it taste like?

What disappointed you about Waste of Space?
I have read ALL of Gina's books and enjoyed everyone of them. For me in this case I think it was the type of dialogue format used.announcing each line as to who was speaking.
But I will still read future work from her. And for that matter , who am I to criticize...this one just wasn't my favorite
I purchased this book because it sounded like it'd be a lot of fun to ready, and I wasn't disappointed. Very clever digs at media culture, reality TV, product placement, and the obsession for style over substance.
The narrators did an excellent job of conveying the humour, the at times frantic pacing of the story, not to mention all the different voices.
The highlight though is the beautiful way that the characters are written, especially the interactions between Niko and Tatania.
I'm of two minds about the ending. On the one hand my analytical mind though it stretched things a bit far, and raised more questions than it answered. But in the end that's not what the book is about. It's about the characters, and from that perspective it wrapped things very well. Not a fairy-tale ending, but satisfying none the less.
