    One thought on “Journey to Cubeville”

    1. Not too many new developments here, but still a good solid performance by the cast. I did particularly like that Phil, Prince of Insufficient Light and the pitch-spoon wielding Ruler of Heck, was unexpectedly downsized in a corporate merger gone bad…

    2. When I started out being an Electrical Engineer, I thought that I would just work in the same office until I was 65. Life did not have that I store for me. Instead I found myself in a cubical of all places. At first is absolutely despised my cubical and then a strange thing happened. I began to love it. Now, companies want to do away with the cubical. They want “open office” where everybody works together. A hundred eyes on me! Hate it!Journey to Cubeville is a book full of comics that mocks [...]

    3. Consistently FunnyA few books into the Dilbert series and it maintains its high quality. Most the comics are three panel strips which are always good for a quick chuckle.

    4. Dilbert is now firmly one of the classic and iconic comic strips. They're certainly starting to look tired now that technology has moved on a bit since the nineties but the pain of modern office life is still faithfully lampooned. Scott Adams' illustrations are a joy of clean lines and refined simplicity - their spartan neatness reflecting the sterile working conditions of their protagonists.In small chunks they work perfectly, but read a bunch of them in one go and the punch lines never quite m [...]

    5. When I was working in any of the many bookstores where I was employed and I did not want (or have the time) to read my current book, I would grab one of these collections to read on my too short break. I slowly but surely worked my way through several series. These are great time killers and will usually improve your mood no matter how hectic the day. Laughter can be the best solution to dealing with the public.Not having been a cubicle monkey,I usually enjoyed Dilbert but one step removed. Dilb [...]

    6. I always enjoy reading Dilbert, and this was no exception. The strips in this collection go back to the late 90s, so there are some little references that may seem dated now. However, the basic office and workplace humor is right on. That remains pretty universal. I have to say that there were some strips that I could really identify with given my workplace, but that is another story. Overall, this is a funny, amusing read.

    7. funny strips, when i see adams really hitting his stride. women are better represented in this collection than others i have read. although i dont think in a positive way. lots of catbert, wally, dogbert, pointy-haired-boss.

    8. We all might have started out like Calvin with a great view of life. But after hitting the workforce we all somewhat become Dilbert. Everyone knows someone like one of the characters in the strips. Highly recommended

    9. Another great book in the Dilbert series! Even if you don't work in the technology field, you can relate to his daily troubles at work. I love this series!

    10. Highly recommended -- includes the rare censored strips where Wally is trying to break his cocaine habit.

    11. As I have been enjoying this "book" every night for the past week, Isaac said that I needed to put it on my book reviews so everyone knew what kind of books I actually read. I admit, I love Dilbert.

    12. Alway funny. I don't read the paper, so I never get to read Dilbert so having a whole book of it was pure pleasure. I couldn't help but think "I have been in meetings like that."

    13. I don't know how many years ago I last read this because I didn't remember most of the comics and found myself laughing so hard over some of them, like I'd never read them at all!

    14. I went through a real Dilbert phase, and I still like it. Very funny stuff! Perfect reading if you are currently hating your job or boss.
