  1. This is the second Levison book I ve read this is his first novel Another thoroughly enjoyable book with some themes that I recognize as ones that will be recurring in How to Rob an Ard Car These themes are marginalized characters working crap jobs in dead end towns, just trying to get by, who get enlisted into doing some completely outrageous criminal scheme that winds up being completely sensible within the context of the story This one is aptly titled Every action taken by its main character, [...]

  5. An enjoyable one day read I m not quite sure why I liked the book so much, and I didn t like it as much asWorking Stiff s Manifestobut it was still very good.


  6. Jake Skowran not Skowron, like Moose lives in a former factory town The factory closed, and everyone is out of work Things are miserable, and Jake s seething anger at the situation makes him ripe for the pickings when an unusual job offer comes his way His transition from unemployment to a pair of jobs hitman and convenience store clerk provides a lot of new experience and allows him to see the world a little differently Levinson handles Jake s despair and bitterness well looking at his previous [...]


  7. In December of 2001, I was laid off from a job that I had had for 24 years At the time, I became depressed, but then Al Genie, a professor at Loyola University, discussed books on working and work ethics on the local NPR station The premise of the book, is that some people will do anything to work, and the hero finds a job with his bookie as a hit man It is a gruesome book in that respect, but the story is interesting and the book is short Both times after I read the book, I felt better I think [...]


  8. I made the mistake of opening this book on a Friday evening while waiting for someone else to get out of work I was two hours late and left the party early to go home and finish it Very funny but never glib.


  9. Small but beautiful novel about the economic and moral decline of a America Almost frightening how acceptabel the nihilistic, amoral attitude of the main character is Great inside in a American culture.


  10. This is a decent book The story hits home for me because my father is an auto worker Sometimes i bet he wished he just up and made himself in to a killer for hire It beats paying to see a shrink.



  11. Nice little satire on the Blue Collar Condition Light and sporadically very funny, but still raises some interesting questions.







  12. What do you do after you get downsized from a loading dock manager job and can only find work for 6.50 an hour at a convenience store Why, you become a hit man


  13. P tillant et dr le mais aussi un implacable portrait de notre soci t dans ce qu elle a de plus injuste et d gradant pour l homme.


  14. Hilarious Grabbed me right from the start This novel needs to be kept away from disgruntled employees without a sense of humor.
