Smartly written, engaging characters. The novel centers around a big box store and the myriad characters that converge there from employees to shoppers to management. It's fun to read all the separate story lines and guess how they are going to intersect.

This first novel is for lovers of social satire by the likes of T.C. Boyle and Carl Hiassen. Set in a SuperStore in New Mexico, the author follows the employees' lives for a few days. The store gossip mill is rife with buzz about the coming visit of Ken Provost, the current CEO. Although slow to start, the novel did pick up and ended with a bang. I appreciated and used the SuperStore organizational chart to keep all the plot lines straight. You'll never look at WalMart the same again!
