5.0 out of 5 stars The Job, November 26, 2001
This review is from: The Job (Paperback)
The Job, by Eric Whitfield surprisd me to an extent, that I'm actually writing a review. I read two or three books a week, and write my reaction only two or three times a year. The reason I don't write my reaction more often is because I seldom read a book, especially by a new author, that yanks my emotions so strongly. After I read this author's first book I couldn't think about anything else for several days.

The actual reading was fun and powerful for me for two reasons:
1.The author has the uncanny (I try to limit my use of this word to twelve times per year) ability to see deeply and observe acutely.
2.The author has the uncanny (one more time this year) talent to describe what he feels and sees in a way that his words make the story very, very, real for me.
Just to give you a little comparison, I read CHEESE MONKEYS by Chip Kidd at the same time I read The Job, except I finished THE JOB first (its alot shorter). CHEESE MONKEYS was 273 pages and THE JOB was about 150 pages (I think [I've been loaning the book to a waiting list of friends])so I can't tell you how many pages it has). I cried more and laughed more when I read THE JOB than when I read CHEESE MONKEYS.
Can you tell that I loved this book?
