The story is told in a series of emails. Not a new phenomenon and perhaps quite reflective of the way people tend to communicate with each other nowadays but this is a very funny book and for anyone who does communicate via email it will all seem very familiar. Due to the format this will be a quick read but thoroughly enjoyable
Meet Martin Sargent.
He hasn't got a girlfriend (not any more, anyway); he hasn't got a flatmate (see point one) and he definitely hasn't got the gift of tact.
But he has got his mates (against all odds), an office crush and a mum who wants him to welcome Jesus into his life.
But most pressing of all - Martin's got a disciplinary meeting for improper use of work email...
WELCOME TO THE WORKING WEEK is a flinchingly funny look at modern life and the friends, flirtations and foolishness that keep it running.
