And Then We Came To The End by Joshua Ferris

I loved the "first person collective" perspective. This novel about the banality and absurdity of modern working life comes roaring out of the gate but starts to lose steam in the final lap. It gains points for originality but loses a few for reminding us all how empty and meaningless time spent at work really is. Unless you have a super-important job like mine, of course. I'm MAKING A DIFFERENCE, goddammit.
