did not like it
Read in January, 2012

I was intrigued by the concept of this book and was looking forward to a witty, satirical novel about life in an office. This book didn't do the trick. Nothing that happened was funny. None of the characters was interesting, and the protagonist was annoying and one-sided at best. Once the twist was revealed, I thought the story might show some promise, but I was wrong. I'm not sure what the point of this was, or why it took so long to not go anywhere.

Barry points at many of the things that are backwards in corporate America, but he does not poke fun at them. Rather, this is like an awkward list of idiosyncrasies that anybody who works for a large company has seen first hand and could probably tell in a funnier way.
