HASH(0x8e58d4bc) étoiles sur 5 Quality of Work Stories Diminishes as the Book Goes On and Could Have Done Without Preachy Union Propaganda 25 septembre 2011
Par Mr James N Simpson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
As far as the Quick Reads series goes, you'll find a lot more entertaining and better written books amongst both the non fiction as well as fiction. I'm not sure if any of the contributors are actually writers or if these we simply submitted in response to an advertisement by the pubishers or something. I would imagine it's the latter as none of them seem to flow that well and certainly none are a shot of laughter and tears that the publisher's blurb on the cover claims.

Some stories are better than others but none are memorable. Most are life tales of a job someone has stuck in for life from the baby boomer era so may be slightly more interesting to that generation for the reminiscing factor. The best are probably the first about a couple of garbage men trying to con residents into paying them to remove extra items who get more than they bargain for with a dead dog. The next about a jack-knifing lorry is all right but nothing special. The third titled riot tells the story of a union member who is part of a strike at a plant where his fellow workers are destroying their own livelihood by pulling out toilets and other items and throwing them at police. The rest are pretty average until we reach the final story of a guy who takes up a career a cake products deliverer who one day finds a store with the door open and the owner who is always there, absent.

The thing though that really lets this book down is the preaching by author Val McDermid about how good unions specifically the trade union movement is in her foreword. This is as bad as picking up a book where an author starts preaching to you about their religion and has no place in a book.

Life's Too Short to waste your time and money on this average collection of true life (well there's one set in a school that I think is pure fiction) work tales when there's much better books in the Quick Reads series to pass your time.

I didn't realise that this book was part of the Quick Reads Collection ... If I had, I would NEVER have bought it !!! I find that the Quick Reads are a waste of time .. you start to get into the story and its finished already !!!

My only wish is that I'd read the previous review, before buying this waste of time & money !!!! USELESS !!!!!!
