Seems wrong to review a book only 3 stories in but even if the rest are awful - still worth it! Also highly unlikely! Ford is reminiscent of Stephen King at his very very best short story-wise. So unsettling and original and weird and chilling and funny and just read it already okay?

Ok so I normally don't post pics that aren't about the book because - this is Litsy, I got instagram for that shit - BUT I got to go to JPL last week and I was reading this book and it was one of those life / book *moments* that was dope AF. Space exploration reminds us all there's something bigger in the beyond and I'm 100% here for it. This book is very sincere and earnest but it's written by a Canadian so that suits. 🚀

Me reading the first 120 pages of this book: "What? Huh? Who? Where? Robot sex? Cyclops? What? Who? Huh? Where?"

Some days my brain wants to work for it, some days I just want a goddamned bedtime story, you know?

Browsing Redfin and suddenly realizing you'll never be able to afford a house? Boom. Swiping through Tinder and see your ex? Honey, it is ON. "Horripilation" - Shantay, you stay.

Lol that this was pitched as "inspirational" ?. See my full review at the blog. I work in tech, but probably lost my chance at ever being hired by Paul English. ? https://seejaneread.squarespace.com/readjaneread/2017/7/9/a-truck-full-of-money-...

Hey Dan, here's some food for thought: maybe the problems with the tech industry are *actually* not because of "the youths" you despise or the products you don't understand. Maybe they're caused by entitled dudes who assume the world is going to be handed to them just because they showed up. Sound familiar? Alas, not confined to the tech industry, as you so perfectly demonstrated in this tale of, as you yourself put it, "beached white male" woe.

OffTheBeatenShelf.com This book sounds terrible! And downright stupid. 😯 2y

This after a sentence "I'm back in the world of grown ups." Yes, the mature and sensible world of grown ups where you talk about poop and huge cocks. Extremely slow clap.
P.S. I talk about that stuff too of course but I don't want a FUCKING MEDAL FOR IT.

First pages are all about how dude has no experience and is "reinventing" himself in an industry he has no background in. Then he finds out out young dude with three years of EXPERIENCE in the industry will be his boss. Proceeds to have mid-life temper tantrum meltdown at having to *gasp* interact with LOWLY MILLENNIALS. If the whole book is like this I may throw it across the room. Pray for me. And poor Zack. ??

Why is this book pitched as "an inspiring story"? Is it meant to inspire people to be assholes? Because this guy sounds like a fucking asshole.

So confused by this book. This is the subject of the bio describing an office - that he wants to be a nightclub after hours. 1) that sounds fucking terrible 2) I'm scared for this hypothetical targeted, sorry "featured" woman 3) why am I still reading this

Really beautifully written. I get the "Where'd you go, Bernadette?" comparisons but it's not, at its core, a breezy, funny novel in the same way. Which isn't a bad thing! Whimsical writing, grim subjects. ??
