    Funny and Compelling

    Initially, the book is funny and the situations immediately identifiable to anyone who's worked in a corporate environment. Much of the first section of the book is dedicated to mockery of modern management styles and the abuses of the English language that often accompany them. But the odd first-person-plural narrative comes off as somewhat gimmicky and, initially, there's not much difference between most of the characters and little sense of plot. But this changes throughout the book and it really picks up some speed and an interestingly menacing tone towards the end. The relationships hinted at in the final section come off as a bit forced and I'd have liked a little more character development in the beginning to justify it - but still, it does come together quite nicely and in general this is a great book.

    I read this book in 2 days. It's a short, easy, fun read. Having worked in an office for too many years, I totally related to many of the characters in the story. I read fiction here & there as a break from my business and computer books, & this is the best I've read in the last year. I was actually laughing aloud! Alone. Definitely recommend to those who have worked in office buildings. You are the ones who will really get it!

    disclaimer - i don't work in an office environment, so perhaps that contributes to my missing the point. very reminicent of the show 'the office'. almost to the point of it being a rip-off. i expected more than just the typical interoffice drama. was hoping for something a little more disturbing. for me the only disturbing aspect was the entire book being 1 to 4 paragraph long chapters until the last chapter. that one goes on forever and for no darned good reason.
