The Part-Time People

Adult
Rated 3.00/5 based on 3 reviews
DeBarrie's Stationery Store needed help again. Somehow, the part-time people never worked out. It was a problem. One after another, the part-time people came and went, and sometimes, nobody ever found out what happened to them. The newest one seemed even more hopeless than usual. His job application announced "there's a man who follows me around and ruins everything I try to do".

About Tom Lichtenberg

"Author of curiously engaging novellas. His stories are not driven by action but by mood and metaphysics. His premises often begin with fairly standard, often vaguely science-fiction concepts, but he spins those concepts out into melancholy, thoughtful tales in which he explores the emotion and (often) dislocation that people feel when confronted by something outside their normal experience." - Devon Kappa

Review by: Midu Hadi on Aug. 16, 2012 :
What David wrote in his application was by far the most interesting thing in this story and I would have loved it, if the author had went on with that.
We are never told what becomes of Gwen and I would have liked to know where she ended up.
Not one of the author's best.

I liked this book very much. You really do meet all kinds when you work retail. I was a little worried about David, but the ending was great. :)

I really enjoyed this story. The characters were very human and believable. Having worked part time in retail I know just how insane things can be. David is an interesting character and it took me a little while to warm up to him, but I really enjoyed the end.
