    1. Overall Feedback: With the abundance of drive for parents to send their children to college to get that "higher education" and that "great job" always in the forefront of Joe Public it was refreshing to see a book that pulled academia to it's figurative knees. Michael does well to show the attitude in the politics of University life and the delusions that aspiring hot-off-the presses professor can find. Humor and wit again find home in this book and I suspect that this may become a theme in the [...]


    2. One of my dearest friends has been a teacher for nearly 20 years. So when I saw The Famous Union I thought I would give it a go, even though it is not a genre I usually get into. What I found is a humorous and interesting glimpse into academia.The Famous Union focuses on two professors starting their first year teaching at Famous Union College. One is a Chaucer specialist with five years of teaching under his belt while the other is a first year teacher with no actually classroom or administrati [...]


    3. "The Famous Union" by Mike Meyer is a hilarious farcial comedy set in a University Campus, highlighting the issue of institutional bureaucracy and its effects on effective public spending.The story tells the arrival of two new academics on Campus, one of which has too many students and one who has none. The latter being stuck to a binding contract that secures his position although his job has been officially axed.Meyer has a talent for comedy and unfolds the story and the implications of said b [...]


    4. The Famous Union is a humorous romp through the groves of a fictional academic Eden: Famous Union College. The initials give some idea of author Myers’ approach to his story, but most of the humor is more on the wry side. The tale is one of incompetence, lust, venality and general nuttiness shared impartially by professors, students, administrators and staff (with an occasional spouse thrown in). The result is a highly entertaining read, one I recommend without reservation for anyone looking f [...]


    5. This story takes place at a college that is completely clueless as to what is going on. It reminded me of Texas in the fact that football comes first. I wish the book gave us more closure. Overall it makes you wonder what really goes on behind closes doors. Very comical at moments!


    6. A Fast Paced, Good Humored, Academic Comedy of MannersThis is a cheerfully farcical tale of the woes of two new professors at Famous Union College. Our mild mannered hero has been hired to teach courses that no longer exist; frustrated and at loose ends, nothing good can come of that. Our other hero is overscheduled and overworked, and compensates with his roving eye for comely coeds. Again, not likely to turn out well. We surround those two protagonists with a flirty secretary, devious administ [...]


    7. I was engrossed by the premise oft his book within seconds of starting to read this book. The writing style is crisp. The characters are vibrant and believable. The author was able to create and demonstrate great depth of character personalities deftly in this novella. I was entertained and really enjoyed this story and recommend it to all. I gave it 4.5 stars because the ending did not maintain the same standard as the rest the book. I look forward to his next book and hope that it is longer so [...]


    8. I only made it to about 10% read and then I gave up.I don't know if the storyline/plot was decent because I couldn't get past all the run on sentences. If the run on sentences weren't bad enough it was like the author had ADD or something. Paragraphs would be jumbled up with different things that had no relationship to each other. The only part I could make out of the book was that someone was hired to teach a class that had been cancelled and no one told him. That was the only coherent piece I [...]


    9. 3.5 stars. This was a quick, easy flowing book to read. The characters were relatable and it was well written. I did expect it to be a bit funnier, but it did have moments. I liked the Bill Ferris character best, especially his reaction to his contract and the lack of a department to coordinate. There was certainly enough going on to keep me interested throughout the book. Not bad.


    10. "The Famous Union is a comedy romp through the halls of academic insanity - and presents a school whose motto is "just wait till next year". Readers - especially those familiar with academic ironies - will find it filled with fun!"MBR Bookwatchadded by temluv | editMidwest Book Review, Diane Donovan (Oct 1, 2011)midwestbookreview/mbw/oct_


    11. Bleh. I was in the mood for a light-hearted comedy, but I didn't find this at all funny. Rather, it actually bordered on depressing.


    12. Catch 22 set in Academia. Farcical unveiling of the nonsense that exists when people act politically rather than with brains and logic.


    13. This book was a waste if my time. It didn't make sense from beginning to end and I still have no idea what the book is supposed to be about except some stupid people.
