HASH(0xa3505204) out of 5 stars Funniest of the Quick Reads Short Stories March 29 2011
By James N Simpson - Published on
Format: Paperback
Men at Work is definitely the most entertaining of all the books in the Quick Reads Series. The story I think works so well because the main character Ian Greening, is such a likeable character, as his girlfriend who he clearly cares a lot about. So you do feel for the guy when his unemployed girlfriend gets a job in his workplace, and even though this means the end of independent Ian, he loves her so much he doesn't speak up. But his girlfriend ultimately goes to far in changing Ian's work life and image seen by his colleagues. Ian has to get rid of her, but how?

There's not a lot of humorous reads amongst the Quick Reads short stories series. Trouble on the Heath by Terry Jones is another good one to check out if you're after a fun read. If you're unfamiliar with the Quick Reads series, they are books published to increase literacy levels by encouraging those who don't like to read beyond magazines and comic books to try fiction through cheap priced (these all sell of the rack for under two pounds in the UK) short story length fiction and non fiction. I think Men at Work achieves those goals and those reading this as their first book ever or for a while will definitely be encouraged to try other Quick Reads stories or regular novels.

This is the first story I've come across by Mike Gayle, after reading this great book I'll definitely be checking out his novels.

Great novel and a must have in your collection of all his work! Mike Gayle just know how to entertain you and make you identify with the characters at one or another point in your life. He is to fiction what Celine Dion is to music!
