The Job: Based on a True Story (I Mean, This is Bound to have Happened Somewhere) by Craig Davis

This was kind of a fun read.  I liked the book and enjoyed the personality of the main character but I found some of his actions to be a bit unbelievable.  I’m not sure, however, that wasn’t the intention of the author.  The book seems to be written tongue in cheek with some of the concepts it portrays.  However, I’ve never know a boss to be quite that out of touch nor inaccessible.  Maybe I’ve just been lucky.  If this were my life and that happened to me, I wouldn’t have survived the first two chapters!

I found it all rather amusing, though.  Sometimes I wanted to just smack the dude to get him to wake up and several times I wanted him to take action where he just stood there.  I never thought of myself as violent but this book brought that out in me!

The book was well written, easy to follow and understand and just a fun read.  I’m looking forward to enjoying other books by this author.

  1. Just like everyone to know I've cut the prices to all my ebooks to 99¢. The new prices may take a while to show up in the Kindle and Nook stores, but they're in place at Smashwords. Please give them a look!
