Then We Came To The End by Joshua Ferris MAG

By George Werner, Bayport, NY

“You have just been let go.” Imagine hearing these words slither off your ­superior’s lips. Your job is now nonexistent. This is the case in Ferris’s diligently written book.

Told in the first person plural, this novel journeys through a Chicago advertising firm that is slowly nearing its demise.
As each
day passes, ­another ­employee goes, and their story slowly ­unzips into an awesomely ­intriguing adventure.

Secrets of their pasts as well as their out-of-work personas are revealed. Although the ­employees are slowly disappearing, in the end they are all a family, coping with the ultimatum each and every one knew would come.

I thought this novel was ­phenomenal. Each page had ­increased technique, entertainment, and literary elements. I regretted putting it down each night. I highly recommend this enticing American workplace satire. I can assure you that you will enjoy Then We Came To The End as much as I did. Just looking at the clever cover makes you wonder what lies beyond, and I can assure you, you won’t be disappointed.
