"Prepare to giggle your way through this witty, brilliantly crafted comic novel" (Heat)

"Had me doubled up in pain. For good reasons... You'll struggle to find a book with as many guffaws as this all year" (Denofgeek.com)

"A stinging satire... Beaumont's dry wit and pithy writing will have readers laughing out loud" (Publishers Weekly)

"Belly achingly funny... Like most offices, there are geeks, bitches, bullies and some show-off yearning for Reality TV fame. You should definitely buy this book" (69 Magazine)

"One of those books you have to read... It's very funny" (Adland Suit)

I was gladly surprised when searching the ebooks store, I found the second part of that hilarious office story. I enjoyed it when read it in Mexico years ago, in its Spanish translation and I was very looking forward to find out what happened with the characters, specially Horton. I am not saying that I was disappointed, but I felt that it was the same plot but with different absurd people and situations. Anyway, it was entertaining.

Being the worlds biggest E Fan ever (well in my humble opinion anyway!) I was surprised, delighted (and not a little annoyed with myself for not knowing earlier) that Matt Beaumont had written a follow up to E.

I have re-read E possibly more then 30 times, yes sad I know...Im an avid reader, at least one book per week is consumed by me so whenever I need a fill in or a laugh, something silly but interesting to read; then E it is. I did worry if E Squared would come up to scratch as the bar is so high for me, such is my love of this book. But I need not have worried, although I cant say that it made me laugh until I nearly pee'd my pants (yes E truly did have that deeeelightful affect on me!!) it certainly made me chuckle all the way through and wonder how any of the people of Meerkat360 managed to keep a job. Just like the reprobates of Millar Shanks do each time I go back to E.

Anyway, basically this book is about an Ad agency, but its all told by either Email or text etc. The style of writing at times may confuse some, but once you are used to it the book trips along at a great pace and you wont be stuck for laughs along the way.

I have thought often over the yrs that Matt Beaumont is very underrated as a writer - I only chanced upon E by luck when rooting through a charity shop one day - not a place my copy will EVER end up Im afraid - Ive just ordered Small World and Im hoping that too is as good a read, he deserves more recognition for this work. So as far as this book and E is concerned; no it wont ever win awards for classic literature but its fun, doesnt take itself too seriously and a damn good read!

funny sequel to E, based on a new company but with familiar characters, it still has that office banter and hilarious situations, worth reading on a dreary train journey (warning: you may laugh out loud)

Matt Beaumont has wowed again with a fantastic follow up to the original E, E2 is edgier than its predecessers and a simply hilarious read. All of the memorable characters of E and E before Christmas are back and are acompanied buy a variety of equally disfunctional primadonnas and sociopaths. This is essntial reading for anyone with a naughty sense of humor. Simply fantastic and well worth the wait.

Matt Beaumont's sequel to "E" is well worth reading - some of the old characters are still around, and some great new ones too. As well as emails this story is told with SMS and MSN plus website 'screenshots' and blog entries. Unlike 'E', 'E2' goes a bit more into the personal backgrounds of some of the characters - what's David Crutton like as a husband and father...what's Liam O'Keefe's big problem...can Susi Judge-Davies' name get any longer? The new characters and all their little foibles really add to the story, too. Like the saying "you don't have to be mad to work here but it helps", you don't have to have worked in advertising to appreciate 'E2' - but it helps (a little). If you HAVE worked in advertising/marketing, you'll feel like you 'know' a lot of the characters. An excellent read, a real page-turner and I'm pleased to say Matt Beaumont's really surpassed himself. So glad I bought this book!

really made me L.O.L. maybe not up to the previous two e books, but very funny just the same. Call me old fashioned but I thought it a little O.O.T. with the profanities, but the characters are just as great as ever- darling.

A decade ago, Matt Beaumont wrote what was one of the earliest, if not the first, book using only E-Mails. "E" was a hilarious look behind the walls of an advertising agency and was by turn ridiculous and hilarious. The follow up, "The E Before Christmas" was a shameless cash in, but after several years and several other books, some written in a slightly more regular format, Beaumont has returned to his original format, if not exactly to the scene of the crime.

This time around, we follow the staff of an advertising agency (now known as a "Thought Collective") called Meerkat360. As with the earlier book, we are introduced to the main characters and how the business works (or, frequently, doesn't) very early on. This time around this is achieved thanks to an annual family circular from Janice Crutton and from a catch up E-Mail from Liam O'Keefe to his mate Brett Topolski.

We swiftly get to meet the remaining cast of characters who will take us through this first month of 2009 at Meerkat360. There are some familiar faces, added to by the foul-mouthed Roisin O'Hooligan on reception and the P. A. Staff; Dotty, who lives up to her name completely and Milton Keane, who is so far in the closet that the next thing he sees is going to be Narnia. Add to this an Art Director who can kill a pit bull with his bare hands and restart a man's heart with a laptop as well as the slightly mentally challenged Harvey Harvey and you can tell it's going to be an interesting, if rather silly, ride once again.

We get to follow the month at Meerkat 360 as they attempt to present a rather strange list of celebrity perfume scents to one client, whilst try to find ways of selling cigarettes in a market that doesn't allow overt cigarette promotion.
