Won as a goodreads giveaway!

I really don't know how to rate this one. The writing is solid, the greeting card industry stuff is funny, the office politics are entertaining, but the narrator himself . . . kind of a jerk, yet at times amusing.

Sometimes I found myself liking him, other times I just wanted to poke him in the eyes for being so emotionally stunted.

Plus, to whom would I recommend this? How would you like to read a mildly amusing book about a so-so funny puzzle-maker who doesn't know how to deal with sex, express himself to his fiance of SIX years, behave respectably in a place of business, yet by the end of the book will assume you're the one too dumb to understand him . . .? Yeah, it's kind of niche market.

However, I didn't hate the book. It really was OK, and there are some genuinely funny parts. I just grew tired of the narrator/author . . .
