Publisher's Summary

How we hated our coffee mugs! Our mouse pads, our desk clocks, our daily calendars, all the contents of our desk drawers...Then We Came to the End is about how we spend our days and too many of our nights. It is about being away from friends and family, about sharing a stretch of stained carpet with a group of strangers we call colleagues. It is about sitting all morning next to someone you deliberately cross the road to avoid at lunchtime.Joshua Ferris' fabulous novel is the story of your life, and mine. It is the story of our times.


What the Critics Say

"Outstanding...incisive, urgent, funny, and snappily written...The comedy debut of the year." (Sunday Times)
"It's a long time since I've read a novel so painfully funny, or so absurdly true." (Craig Brown, Mail on Sunday)
Very funny, intense and exhilarating...For the first time in fiction, it has truly captured the way we work." (The Times)

Most Helpful

and the Oscar for narration goes to...

I liked the novel very much. It's alert - it doesn't seem to drag on for a single second; the "we" of the storyteller is managed with great art; it sketches great portraits of the characters, and each voice is distinct and accurate; and it's - to use a cliche - a great portrait of the times.

But the awesome thing about the novel is the narration. Ian Porter is unbelievable - I can't imagine reading the novel on paper now that I've heard his performance. He shapes each character, each situation so wonderfully that I don't think I will be able to enjoy another audiobook narration as much. Unless it's by him, of course.
