Then We Came to the End

Then We Came to the EndJoshua Ferris

Anyone who has worked in an office will feel a strong sense of understanding, if not deja vu, when reading Then We Came to the End. Written in a chatty, meandering stream-of-consciousness style the narrator shares stories of coworkers and their jobs as they are downsized one by one. Sometimes likable, sometimes interesting and all recognizable as “hey, that sounds like that guy I used to work with” the workers are all interesting in a low key way. An excellent read for those who aren’t currently being downsized or unemployed.
