Publisher's Summary

Julie kissed Mark at the office Christmas party. She doesn’t seem to remember but he’s not been able to forget. What better day to jog her memory than Valentine’s Day?

Calum’s found the girl of his dreams on the internet. Trouble is, he’s not been completely honest about himself. Tonight he’s meeting her for the first time but will it also be the last?

Nathan’s organized his usual Anti-Valentine’s party for the office singletons. Sophie’s going - again. Though this year, if she gets her way, they might just be leaving together.

One office, five lives, on the most romantic day of the year.

A Day at the Office is a wise, wonderfully moving, and laugh-out-loud novel about life, love, and relationships by bestselling novelist Matt Dunn.

    "My first Review...Here Goes!"

    I've never taken the time to write a review before, mostly because others have written what I would have said. This time it doesn't matter to me. As I listened to this book I kept wondering,"Why am I wasting my time? What is the point of this book?".
    I mean I get it, office workers' love lives. However, except for some odd reason, the character Callum, has a bit of a backstory, the others, nothing. Which leaves you with no reason to care about any of the others. There are the minutest of details provided for the characters as though they did not exist prior to their previous relationship.
    It's a pity because Matt Dunn has written better so I know he has the potential to do superior work than this tripe.

    Story
    "Like listening to the football scores"
    Any additional comments?

    I don't know if this is a good book or not. I suspect not. I think it's in that genre of glib, not-quite-funny-enough, not-quite-clever-enough, not-quite-well-written-enough but nevertheless inoffensive-enough humorous novels of which there are thousands.
    On the other hand it's difficult to get a real sense of the writing when the narrator. Insists on reading. Every sentence. Like it's the shipping forecast.

    Avoid.

    "Lovely feel-good story... dreadful narration"
    Where does A Day at the Office rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Very, very low...


    What was one of the most memorable moments of A Day at the Office?

    The shaving bit....


    Would you be willing to try another one of James Clamp’s performances?

    NO, not ever... dreadful performance! So robotic!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not listen. Read? yes...


    Any additional comments?

    It could've been a great audiobook if a better narrator had been chosen. I stopped listening after a while and switched to only reading. It was terrible!

    Story
    "Not Quite For Me!"

    I'm probably a bit too old for this, because it all seems a bit twee and juvenile. So I didn't really get into it or get beyond the fourth chapter! I'm not sure if I could wade through the stilted actions and conversations and get to the real heart of the book.

    So, my advice is, only read this book if you're under 30 and possibly single, because otherwise you might just find this a bit tedious or bland!!

    Story
    "fan book"

    This was only my second audio book and I loved it, I can see why people love audio books. The Narrator was brilliant because he voiced all the characters so well that when I switched to reading I was able to hear his voice in my head.
    All the characters were well developed and multi faceted so they were beleivable. Which meant that I was able to connect with all of them in different ways and for different reasons.

    I loved the basis of the story, the feelings of different people in an office about valentines day and about relationships due to their experiences. It was developed fully and in a way that made it really believable. It also meant that I was able to visualise things that were happening easily.

    I will read/listen to this book again as I loved the story and narration so much. The author will be an auto buy/read author and the narrator will be an auto buy/listen to narrator. Without doubt and unreservedly I will both recommend the book to others and buy it as a gift for anyone I know who I think will enjoy it.

    "very enjoyable."
    Where does A Day at the Office rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I mostly read/listen to crime. This was the first in this genre. Overall thou it ranks highly amongst those I've enjoyed.


    What other book might you compare A Day at the Office to, and why?

    First in this genre really so I can't compare. I can say it was funny and well written to a real life depiction of offices today


    What does James Clamp bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    He brings the people in the story to life and is pleasant to listen to


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laugh. Especially the picnic reference

    Story
    "Classic Dunn"

    This was a good fun read with the interesting, if not a little predictable web of a storyline which Dunn creates. A relaxing time filler for both men and women I can't help but think Dunn is the modern day male version of Mills & Boon without the explicitness!
