On a snowy Friday night in 1979, just hours after making love for the first time, Richard's girlfriend, high school senior Karen Ann McNeil, falls into a coma. Nine months later she gives birth to their daughter, Megan. As Karen sleeps through the next seventeen years, Richard and their circle of friends reside in an emotional purgatory, passing through a variety of careers—modeling, film special effects, medicine, demolition—before finally reuniting on a conspiracy-driven super-natural television series. But real life grows as surreal as their TV show as Richard and his friends await Karen's reawakening . . . and the subsequent apocalypse.

Girlfriend in a Coma
Average rating

Good for young readers

I feel like I would have appreciated this book at a younger age. It's good and interesting but is also dripping with fear of "modern" life and stagnance. Reads at a good pace, lots of things are happening until the point in the book where things stop happening.
