    One thought on “The Grass is Always Greener (Modern Times)

    1. Luvena

      I really liked it. The quick peek into the lives of 7 individuals in the hierarchy of a bank. Each stop steps into the unique shoes of the individual at his own mark in life - with his own trials, challenges and aspirations around the corporate later and in their personal lives. For a short story, Archer has created a well spun story with sufficient depth that doesn't make one leave thinking someting is missing. I enjoyed it!

    2. Aishwarya Lohi

      Quite engaging If you can add one plus one, the theme of the story is evident after reading the title of the book and the first two pages. (spoiler) But why would an ex-Chairman want to switch places with a homeless person?

    3. Yani

      С изключение на 1-2 разказа, разказите са прекалено кратки за да разгърнат някакъв интересен сюжет. Все пак представят някои интересни гледни точки, които те провокират да се замислиш, и оправдават дочитането на книгата.

    4. Ravi Teja

      Good one. There was a remarkable flow to the story. Nothing very extra ordinary about the story, but something that is enjoyable. 3.75/5

    5. Sridhar Krishnamoorthy

      This story confirms the Law of compensation 'Our wills & fates do so contrary run that our thoughts are overthrown.The means may be ours but their ends none of our own.'

    6. Sundarraj Kaushik

      A nice book which depicts that each person has her own travail to deal with. Each person feels that the Grass is Greener for the other person.The book starts with a person on the street who daily sleeps outside a bank. He wonders how the security guard at the bank is having a much better life, who thinks how the usher in the bank has a better life, who thinks how the Administrative Head has a better life and so on up to the Chairman of the board who thinks how easy it is for the person on the st [...]

    7. Ivor Sheehan

      Well titled short storyFor anyone retired or who has spent many years as an employee, perhaps in a variety of jobs or companies, the narrative must evoke some feelings of "I've been there too". As one looks back one wonders how any of us survive in the " dog eats dog" environment that we all live in.

    8. Amy

      The book description was quite vague but I decided to give it a go. It's basically a book with the points of view of various people who work at a bank who wish they had someone else's job or life. Quite fitting for the novella title but I prefer stories with more storyline. I expected it to loop back to fit in a storyline somewhere but aside from the last line it didn't.

    9. Agadah

      An most enjoyable short story which, for those who work in the City of London, has a ring of reality. It is certainly a case of the grass looks greener.

      Good oneConcise, precise and fast paced. The realistic approach is something that makes this story endearing and emphatic. Read it once.
