    A million stars if I could Who knew that you could ever laugh at a history book especially one about 'notable' Australians? But I did in public no less I probably sounded mad on the bus but whateverBasically this is set up as profiles on famous Australians but as the author freely admits he doesn't always fact check That makes for some hilarious dialogue by the author as he races off in totally unexpected directions and comparisons The closest I've ever seen to this was a bloke I knew in High School who forgot to study Nelson Mandela and instead wrote his essay by starting with two sentences about him and digressing into 'Another cool person I know about was Vlad the Impaler and proceeded a two page essay about him As a class we had the delight of listening to this read aloud as an example of what not to do in your own essays This book was a far informative readYou will either 'get' this author's sense of humor or you won't and remain forever slightly offended It's a mix of poking at things we'd rather forget about our horribly racist past plays on words and just general idiocy that was just fun to read If you find the idea of the definition of an Ironmonger as one who mongs iron then this is the book for youI adored every second I can't recommend this one highly enough Five stars Oh and OI OI OI

    Outstanding uite funny love the comedic style sorry I can't help with the whereabouts of Malcolm Turnbull

    This book is brilliant I am listening to the audio version and the guy who reads it is fantastic if you can listen to it I think it is well worth it his timing is spot on The book is so funny and irreverent I have been recommending it to friends and family and know I will listen to it again I have laughed out loud a lot of times I've learnt a lot along the way tooA great gift if you are stuck for ideas Can someone please turn it into a tv series?

    This was a fun history book that I picked up after reading uite a heavy history Sven Beckert's Empire of Cotton which made it a nice one to unwind to Ben Pobjie's humour keeps it light and he introduced me to some characters I'd never heard of before including Charles Tait who directed the first ever feature film the one about Ned Kelly As well as some characters I felt bad for not having heard of before Vincent Lingiari who lead a amazing nine year strike for better pay and working conditions for aboriginal people embarrassingly I thought he was an Italian migrant It also provided some new details about people I had heard of like Caroline Chisholm and Alan Bond So I do recommend it for anyone looking for a good introduction into these people but my one criticism is that the research is light and sometimes the humour gets in the way of the history Sometimes I just wanted to know a bit but instead I read a joke It is a book that's worth a read especially if like me you are no expert on the people in it


  5. Annie Booker Annie Booker says:

    Absolutely hysterical and only slightly true


  6. Duncan Duncan says:

    Funny Does what it says on the box Best read using Shaun Micallef’s voice Unsure if this is deliberate or not


  7. Ari Sharp Ari Sharp says:

    Haiku ReviewTurns out we were taughtOnly half of the storyNow the truth comes out


  8. 5haybear 5haybear says:

    If you've never read a Ben Pobje novel NOW IS YOUR TIME This is the second book of his I have read and both are laugh out loud strange looks on the bus can't stop talking about it to your significant other FUNNYI was amazed and delighted by the wit and effortless writing style in this book and actually found myself very well educated on a number of important historical figures by the time I had finished I feel this should be reuired reading for all Australian students and those who have ever been Australian students and even those who aren't Australian but who appreciate really funny writingPS the audiobook is WONDERFUL

    A very fun and educational book that left me feeling very proud to be able to call myself ‘Australian’ though a little bewildered as to why I felt that way because I had very little to do with the achievements of the Australians written about in the book and some of them were actually uite terrible people This book also put my mind at ease regarding former Prime Minister Harold Holt — he’s actually alive than ever and is doing very well Four stars
