A topp work of litaratur, 5 Dec 2008
As any fule kno this is clasic. Full of topp writing and insiteful comment about skool and the iniquities of life (chiz moan) it stand the test of time like other grate works (see milton shakespeer dikens and other weeds etc etc). There hav been many who hav seen wisdom in the words of nigel as he carefully discuss 'kanes i hav known', reveal the molesworth-peason lines machine (runs off a hundred in one minit), explain life at st custards and introduce his frends and some sissies like fotherington-tomas who skip like a gurl and is wet. An essential addition to the bookshelf of anyone who went to a skool, had to deal with beaks, oiks, goodie goodies and playing criket in the rane against skools like Porridge Court etc etc. It is the uggly truth.
