Last Night at the Lobster by Stewart O’Nan is an interesting look into the lives of the manager and his employees working the very last night before their location is shut down.
I’ve never been to a Red Lobster because I don’t eat seafood, but I was still interested to check this one out when I first heard about it.
My Thoughts on Last Night at the Lobster by Stewart O’Nan
I picked this book up one afternoon and didn’t put it down until I had finished reading the whole thing. I always think it’s so interesting to see little glimpses into other people’s lives; and this certainly gave us an interesting story!
While I didn’t really care much for any of the characters, I did relate to a few of them with my previous work experience.
This book will take you on a rollercoaster of emotion; you’ll be sad, you’ll laugh, and your blood will boil. But in the end, you’re going to be happy you took the time to read this.
I would definitely recommend this to all! Especially those that tend to be rude to your waiter/waitress or anyone else in a customer service-related job (seriously, cut that out!).
