Book Review: Personal Days by Ed Park

Posted on: October 10, 2008

As a fan of Office Space and The Office (both British and US), I picked up this book thinking it was going to be along the same lines, with smart, modern office humor. However, I had a difficult time with this book.

This was not structured like your typical novel, and that bothered me. I found it difficult to read, and I slowly lost interest in the plot. The characters all seemed the same, with similar names, and no differentiating characteristics, so it was easy to lose track of who was who.

When I got to the last section of the book, I nearly threw the book down in disgust. Written as one long run-on sentence email, it was very difficult to read. Who wants to read nearly 50 pages of text with lousy punctuation and no paragraph breaks? Maybe I didn’t “get it”, but the entire time I was reading this section, I couldn’t stop thinking about how much I hated it.
