1.0 out of 5 stars Don't Bother 12 Jun 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
If you're interested in this sort of thing then you've probably seen the best of this book somewhere on the internet. It took me 15 mins to read, and a lot of it was very unoriginal. Really not worth the price.

2.0 out of 5 stars Must try harder 26 Nov 2012
By Charles VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Liked this to start with but the more I read the less I liked it.

Why? Well, I think it has a major problem, one which becomes more evident the more you read the book, and the more you think about what you're reading: the examples are all made up. Both the questions AND the answers - and that's important to note. Because once you've realised that you can see what they're doing, inventing questions that would NEVER actually be asked on an exam paper, just so they can put a 'funny' answer, you see the light. And when you realise this, the 'punchline' is revealed to be pretty lame. 'Name Labour's first cabinet minister' is one. Eh? How could there be a proper answer to this? There isn't, it's just the excuse for the retort 'Mr Chippendale'. Or 'Why did Britons have better health after the year 1990?'. Did they? I'm not sure they did, but it leads to the 'child's' answer of 'the eighties were over'.

Also, sometimes the answers simply do not sound like answers youngsters would give, making it seem falser still.

When something like this doesn't ring true it completely falls apart - the humour DEPENDS on it being genuine. That's why Private Eye cuttings books work, because you can see that they really were originally done. Here I suspect that they get someone to imitate around a dozen different styles of children's handwriting and make their book - and there's no way that their spelling would ever be as fault-free as this!

But what do I know, it's sold loads.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not really student answers 23 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The title says it all, there are many clues hinting towards the fact that these are all fake. The hand writing style, for example. Also, the drawings Don't match up with the scale of the writing. There are many other hints, but I'm sure you'd rather just buy a real book. I ignored a similar review, and I'm now regretting it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could do better... 29 Dec 2013
By Doug TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great idea, a book of amusing answers students or pupils have given in tests.

However despite this only being a 30 minute read I got tired of it very quickly as it is all so contrived.

I used to teach and wish I had kept a book of the real howlers, I hoped this might be the book, but no.

Both questions and answers are contrived.

I would not buy it again (even at 99p), or recommend it to a friend.

Such a shame, a great idea poorly executed.

1.0 out of 5 stars not plausable 18 May 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was about the most disappointing kindle book purchase I have ever made. It can be read in half an hour. There was very little content for the price and what was there was not believable. Much of it seemed to be contrived and hidden behind so called 'real scripts' of the student's answers.
I understand there are other books in this series, hopefully filed under 'fiction' and 'fantasy'.
Don't waste your money OR your time.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not great 31 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am a teacher and am not sure of the authenticity of some of the answers. I am presuming that these answers were an attempt at comedy from an adult author.
