Fans of "The Office"--American or British--will enjoy Joshua Ferris's take on working life. This debut novel is written from a plural first-person viewpoint, which is a bit odd at first but soon becomes transparent and integral. Ad agency employees struggle to create a humorous breast cancer awareness campaign while dodging the lay-off ax. The characters are recognizable office personalities, and Deanna Hurst's narration gives each character life without going overboard with different voices for dialogue. In other words, like the characters themselves, the voices all sound different and the same, simultaneously. With Hurst playing Ferris's dry, sharp humor perfectly, listeners will be sorry to hear the story come to an end. M.T. © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2008]
