This author has talent. Just needs to be honed. For instance, Bill gets a ride into work with his friend Ankle in his Camaro but at the end of the work day, Bill gets in his own silver Impreza to go home. And I'm glad Adrian has "matching eyes." My question would be "As opposed to what?"

"She looked over her shoulder at him and shuttered." I think the author means "shuddered." Shutters would have to do with what one has on their windows. Fiasco has strait teeth? Get a dictionary, bro!

Ha! That was

Actual rating 3.5

LOL. What an oddly enjoyable story. Just an average man, with an average job and average, but quirky, coworkers, going about his days, weeks, months. Nothing special, yet somehow the writer manages to suck you in.

If you like the movie Office Space (which it does reference at one point), then I think you'll like this book. I did have to knock down the rating, however, for the sloppy editing towards the end of the story. The further you go along the more missing words, misspelling

I took a chance on this one because office-related stories aren't usually what I'm into, but it was pretty enjoyable! It was a light, funny read and it would have been quick if I wasn't busy lately.

I enjoyed how each chapter seemed to be a random day in Bill's life working for Riders insurance. There wasn't much development anywhere because of that, but some of the characters were funny!

There are quite a few typos and not enough commas, but it's not that much of an issue while reading (for me).

I actually enjoyed the light-hearted first person style used by the author but after reading through half of the book, I found myself wanting the book to either end or develop some high or low points. Someone else noted it is reminiscent of The Office and it is, but it feels like a marathon of episodes, rather than just one. This can be released as short stories and be successful too. Good start and good exposure for the author!

Terrible writing and spelling. Sometimes seems like a demo for product placement in book form. I mean, how many times does the protagonist need to mention his love of Buffalo Wild Wings? More like a poorly written blog than a book.

This was better than I expected with a lot of office-based humor. While I have never worked in an insurance company, I could relate to a lot of the situations in the book.

I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado. I didn't want to write until October of 2007. While I was driving around with a friend and said "hey, I wonder if I can write a book." So he thought he would try and write outline and see what happens. I has written two books that are in podcast form, and has over 80,000 downloads on his podcasts. Both of my books are out in ebook form with 8810 in ...more
