Is this what we are reduced to

by LadyLourdes on Feb 12, 2009

I hated it. It was slow, repetitive and boring. If this is modern corporate life I don't want any of it.

Office Gossip - Gotta love it?

by PDDN on Aug 17, 2008

The view point in the book can be wearying at times, but it creates a picture of something that almost all of us recognize, the modern office. Like much good literature, it asks the question, "What in life is really important?" It, also, makes clear that the people we spend the most time with, our co-workers, may not be the people that we believe them to be. That may be a good thing.

A timely topic and good book

by Ceinwein on Jul 10, 2008

A fascinating and enjoyable book (even if it did tend to drag at times). Seldom do we stop and think about the wonderful, interesting and sometimes trying relationships we develop through our work environment. The co-workers in this successful advertising firm form a family-like network bound to each other in powerful ways.

There may be many who can relate.

Cubeville

by jmarrapodi on May 10, 2007

It truly is fun to read a novel set in my day to day world. This is Dilbert-esque in the perceptions and realities of what goes on in Corporate America. I laughed at the goings on because it was such a good, albeit sometimes caricatured, perspective on life in Cubeville: the gossip, the infighting, the drama and the interchanges of lives woven together during the work day. It's set in an advertising company, so it's a nice glimpse into that world, but it transcends that to touching all of us who work in the politically correctly termed "workstation." Worth passing along to a colleague.

Brilliant

by Billy on May 3, 2007

One of the most amusingly snarky (yet heartfelt) first novels ever about, well, work -- vis a vis life, love, anger, marriage, community, protocol, stolen office chairs, and mysteriously bequeathed totem poles. Should be required reading for anyone who's ever typed away in a cube, and wondered if they're making a difference in the world, or even just an impact on their co-workers. Answer: yes.
