    One thought on “Great Australian Urban Legends”

    1. Absolutely hilarious! Whether or not you agree with his opinions, this author tells stories with incredible wit and charm that had me won over long before I finished the book. There were stories I'd read before, but definitely not with the same attitude this author had. I actually laughed out loud. That doesn't happen very often with non fiction.Absolutely recommend, five fun filled stars!

    2. Definitely not as advertised. There where a few urban legends, but also a large amount of ghost stories, UFO stories, and folklore.Someone needs to take Eamon Evans aside and carefully explain exactly what constitutes an urban legend.

    3. I am a huge fan of Urban Myth/Legend books so you can imagine my surprise when I returned to Australia after a few years away and saw 'Great Australian Urban Legends' on the shelves. I purchased it right away and presumed I would purchase many more copies to give as gifts when overseas again. The front cover features a Drop Bear and I imagined hilarious tales regarding Australian creatures such as Drop Bears, Bunyips, Yowies and who knows what else. I was expecting a rollicking yarn. Yes I judge [...]

    4. Could have been great, but the "jokes" were just embarrassing - snide, tone-deaf and forced. It was like watching a failed stand-up routine that went for way too long.
