Then We Came to the End: Dysfunctional company falling apart

Then We Came to the EndThen We Came to the End by Joshua Ferris

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I got to about page 125 in this book and decided to give up. It wasn't horrible...but I just couldn't get into it. Part of the problem is that it's written in first person plural...and it's very difficult to really relate to the characters. It's basically about a dysfunctional company falling apart and laying people off. Interesting that it was published in 2007--the author must have been clairvoyant about the coming recession.

I wanted to like this book, because the idea seemed clever...but I must not have been in the right mood, or something.
