Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Dumped, Actually comes a laugh-out-loud story about saving your job...and maybe saving the planet in the process.

Meet Ellie Cooke. When it comes to all things environmental she’s, well, a bit "green". It’s not that she doesn’t care about things like climate change and plastic pollution, it’s just that life has always got in the way of that sort of thing.  

But when the PR firm Ellie works for is taken over by keen environmentalist Nolan Reece, it’s clear that if she wants to save her job, she’s going to have to get serious about being green - or face being recycled. 

Going green is no walk in the park, though. It involves a lot of big changes, tough choices...and at least one case of accidentally showing your knickers off to your boss.

Can Ellie do enough to save her job, and maybe do her bit to help save the planet while she’s at it? And what will Nolan think of her, now that she can’t stop thinking about him...?

Another Spaulding Hit!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I'm just sad it was so short. It was fun and had many of the typical humorous, snort-out-loud moments Spaulding has become known to expertly deliver. Paired with Nick's witty storyline was an excellent narrator who definitely enhanced the appeal of the book with her interpretation of the main character. Get it, you won't be sorry.

Green??

Hated this book. Love every book up till now by this author. Usually get into the story by page 2. Not this time. The humor was not there like his other books. Love the way climate change people have all the answers. Now, if we just made enough money to pay for all the electric cars or a place to plug them in, that would be great. By the way, since the government insists on electric without burning coal, lets get ready for more expense. Until they make it easier to use them, I will stick to my small SUV, which I need to get around in the snow in the winter. 😉.

If the water that comes out of the tap could be trusted to not have other "stuff" in it, I might drink it. So I will continue to buy plastic bottles. I do recycle them. As well as paper.

Review

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. It is and was highly amusing to listen about a girl who did not know anything about climate control to one who actually listens and learns, just to save her job. Highly recommended for anyone who enjoys listening to a really good book.

A laugh with a message

Very few books make me laugh out load but this book did. Ellie's antics are very funny. Although it's pushing of green issues is now disguised, it does make many positive statements about this and what each of us can do.

One of my favourite authors. Easy listening with a brilliant injection of comedy and calamity.

disappointing, but enjoyed the end

I had to spread this up as was finding Ellie just stupid and annoying. the situations created for her story were just ridiculous and so unbelievable they lost any humour. how old was Ellie supposed to be as she came across as a ditzy young girlie.
I did chuckle now and again but not nearly as much as I have to previous yarns by this author.
the ending was delicious though, and a firm point added for that.

proper LOLs

haven't listened to such a funny book in a long time. there were moments that were so horrifyingly cringeworthy I was actually blushing for Ellie.

the narrator was brilliant and her impression of the Bandy, the protestor had been hooting with laughter... (listened at 1.35x speed)

Bridget Jones of today

A successful 'Bridget Jones of today' type of storytelling that's fun, easily to listen to, and made me chuckle frequently :)

I finished it really quickly, and would seek out others from the author off the back of enjoying this one so much.

Incredibly Funny

I listen to audio books all the time, especially when walking the dogs. I ended up laughing out loud with my two four leggeds looking at me like I was far crazier than normal. We've all been in Ellie's positron where we go from one extreme to another and I highly recommend this book if you want a good laugh and to go green...er!

Hated it

Absolutely hated this! By far my least favourite NS book. Ellie was such an annoying character.

Very annoying main character

I forced myself to finish this book and was glad I did. My main problem was that I found Ellie Cooke incredibly annoying in her self-centred stupidness, even if she did redeem herself in the end.
I did not feel this book was up to Nick Spalding's usual standard of humour and suspect that it was written more to impart a moral message than to entertain. The ending was, however, satisfying.
