The company takes what the company wants

I am interested but wary of Max Barry's Company. I generally like office satires whether on screen or in book form. That said I had a few issues. My first concern, dismissed by this review, was that he hadn't lived it, man. But now I see he did a stint at Hewlett Packard so he has lived the corporate life to some degree. My second is that I thought his Jennifer Government wasn't that good. The characters weren't that good and the world where corporations run everything, just was not believable at all, looking like a WTO protester's crack dream of a dystopia. Anyway, I will wait and see what others say about Company.
