La verdad es que lo empecé a leer con ganas pues me lo recomendaron 2 compañeros de trabajo. Al principio tiene su gracia y la idea del autor es francamente buena, pero creo que se e que no es un escrute experimentado y eso hace que el estilo de escritura y el argumento acaben aburriendo. A ni me costo acabarlo.

It's one thing to get the feeling that in the grand scheme of things your job doesn't matter much at all, it's another thing to find out your job is in fact absolutely meaningless and serves no real purpose. Max Barry does a wonderfully absurdist job of satirizing the corporate office place. This is a must read for anyone who's ever worked in a cube-farm. Though senior management, the evil that is HR, office politics and departmental infighting get somewhat exaggerated for comic effect here, this allows for some very pointed, VERY funny and very true observations. The plot is kind of a mess, the characters aren't much more than two dimensional, it largely falls apart in the end, but Barry's stark writing style and keen skewering of the office place makes Company a hilarious and enjoyable read.

This book was so much fun to read. I was seriously laughing out loud at many parts. I had the audio book version of the book and it was outstanding. They did a great job with it and made it very entertaining. I think it is very relevant to read for anyone who has been in an office setting. I definitely could relate to much of what went on. I think it is an interesting take on how mega corporations are turning their employees into nothing but cogs in a wheel.
