Then We Came to the End

Then We Came to the End Then We Came to the End by Joshua Ferris
My review
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Since the subject of this novel is, essentially, office life, comparisons will surely be made to the movie Office Space. They’re not out of place, I would probably refer to this book as Seinfeld meets Office Space. But while Mike Judge took Office Space to the revenge angle, this book finds that, as much as the office drones hate their jobs, they love them just as much. The novel provides an interesting take on interoffice politics and gossip, and really delves deep into the relationships we form at work, not to mention that it takes place in Chicago, and includes some mentions of Naperville. I ripped right through this one and had a tough debate over whether it deserved a 4 or a 5 (I need those half-stars), but ultimately decided on a 4. Well worth a read for you office drones.
Next up is Soon I Will Be Invincible by Austin Grossman.
