Introduction

(This wickedly funny, big-hearted novel about life in the office signals the arrival of a gloriously talented new writer. The characters in Then We Came to the End cope with a business downturn in the time-honored way: through gossip, secret romance, elaborate pranks, and increasingly frequent coffee breaks. By day they compete for the best office furniture left behind and try to make sense of the mysterious pro-bono ad campaign that is their only remaining "work."

  "Not a good Pick"by Snymar123 (see profile) 10/10/08

I have never been so disinterested in a book before. I thought it was slow and silly. There was one good chapter in the middle of the book, and that was about it. Dont waste your time.

 
  "A novel writen by a journalist who perhaps should stick with what he does best"by pamg2002 (see profile) 08/12/08

  "Terrible...No plot."by stefanieapplegate1 (see profile) 08/10/08

This book is not worth anyone's time. I didn't even finish the book. There was no plot at all. There was no cohesive story, it was a bunch of rambling. Very disapointing. Nobody in our club liked it.... (read more)
