What’s this? These urgent messages scrawled on paper and sent drifting from a fifth floor window at the Acme building? It must be “Welcome to Acme,” a collection of 14 short stories describing life at the funniest (and most dysfunctional) corporation on earth. One anonymous secretary sends out desperate pictures of life on the Inside: violence, death threats, slavery, insanity, and brazen crime. And that’s just Mr. Acme!

You’ll laugh, you’ll cry. But mostly, you’ll be glad this isn’t your workplace.

It isn’t your workplace…is it?

"Entertaining, funny, and far too recognisable, this light humour read is a good way to pass a lunch hour or two."

Reviewer: .


Acme - where the secretaries are car-washed, corporate espionage has double agents, and throwing sickies can save your job.

Written in an over-the-top style, I had high hopes for this book from the moment the secretaries discovered the "disinfecting process" on hire. Sadly after this, it tails off slightly. The problems are still funny, but things like the office pest and food thief are a little too close to normal - some are actually rather tamer than experiences I've actually had in employment, and I think many people would have the same issue.

It is still a funny read, enjoyable even if, as you would expect from a humour book, it doesn't have much weight. The problem for older readers is that the humour of the shocking or unexpected fades when it provokes jaded nods instead of disbelieving giggles.

Entertaining, funny, and far too recognisable, this is a good way to pass a lunch hour or two.

Rating: 4
