Too expensive for what I got
3 November 2018
I bought this book based on the blurb. It sounded great. It was okay but it was not worth the kindle price.
The reviews describe it as 'Hilarious, laugh-till-you-weep stories, very entertaining' - I don't agree. I didn't weep with laughter, nor did I find anything hilarious.
It did bring back memories of the Australia I knew as a child - but the overall tone of the book was to denigrate 'then' and 'laud' now. At one stage the book discusses the Australian Cultural Cringe, then makes that cringe alive and well in the author's current perspective of our history.
I was disappointed and basically feel I wasted my money.
