    2 thoughts on “Error Australis: the reality recap of Australian history

    1. I've not yet read the book, but my friend Ben Pobjie says it's pretty good and he usually knows when stuff is funny. 5 stars

    2. Ever since I read Ben's other book, I had been watching out for a copy of this one. I'm generally loathe to do orders for books I think I can get locally, and sometimes I enjoy the thrill of the hunt. Finally the chase ended at QBD Penrith, and this was one of the first books I read from that trip.This book is fun and yet informatative, although you can't always take the information as fact. All of the jokes appealed to my Australian sense of laid back humour, and I had the rare treat of laughin [...]

    3. As a greedy reader of Ben Pobjie's Masterchef recaps and with an interest in Australian history (I was fortunate to study it with the late Tom Stannage) I was hanging to read this book. And was not disappointed. I mostly read it in bed shared with a husband and toddler and found myself physically shaking to suppress my laughter at times, particularly the chapter on federation and the descriptions of Peter Dutton and the artwork. The recap style and references to popular culture will possibly dat [...]

    4. Error Australis is a humorous historical book that made me laugh out loud, and that is a rarity for me. I wish this book had been around when I was studying Australian Studies at university as it taught me more than many textbooks I read at the time. The footnotes were brilliant, the callbacks cleverly used, the photo captions perfect.The only problem with this book is that Australian history is so bizarre that there were times where I started to think made up parts may have really happened.

    5. We aren't taught much about Australia here in the USA -- well, other than the fact that a place called Australia exists somewhere very far away and many kangaroos live there. After reading this book, however, I now feel as if I know everything worth knowing about the history of my neighbors down under. I strongly suspect that not everything in the book is literally true, but that won't stop me going forward from using it as my handy, go-to reference text for all things Australian. (Granted, this [...]

    6. Sometimes you read a book that speaks so deeply and truly to your secret soul, you feel sure a funnier, more educated and productive you must have written it in your sleep. I wanted to quote some of my favourite bits, but would have ended up typing out the entire book. I loved it all, even the weird chapter. Especially the weird chapter. Special mention for the Breadfruit and 'Malcolm Turnbull, who wept for there were no more worlds to conquer'.

    7. A very, very funny read. I actually read this book twice, once in my head and then immediately out loud again to my husband. I am a MASSIVE fan of David Hunt's books Girt and True Girt. Error Australis has a similar vibe although with more gags and less historical accuracy. This book is good fun. It's like having an after work drink and gossiping about historically important dead people we've never met. Four juicy breadfruits out of five.

    8. They say if you repeat history you are doomed to failure, but Ben manages to retell history with some humorous and insightful success. Loses a star for the Audiobook reading mispronunciation of Canowindra, and casting Paul Keating as a Vampire. Recommended reading for every student of the past, the present and tomorrow.

    9. Amazingly, this book actually did manage to raise a snigger a few times which saved it from a one star review. I was almost put off seeing a Peter Fitzsimons endorsement on the cover and only persevered because it was on audio. Overall, this is weak sauce.

    10. It seems as though Ben is trying too hard to be Douglas Adams, and the flow of the text suffers for it

    11. Truth may well be stranger than fiction, but in the spirit of not bothering to find out, I present to you this fabulously funny reimagining of Australia's history. Pobjie's dedication to riffing on the key events in our country's formation and his relentless inability to let a running joke lie makes him a force as formidable as a testicle-mailing bushranger. (With perhaps less murder. Who's to say. I don't know Pobjie personally.)If nothing else, he inspired me to google this recipe for breadfru [...]

    12. This is one of history's most outstanding books about, errr, history! No matter where you come from, you'll want to end up between these hilarious pages, chortling and snorting over every sentence (perhaps best not consumed too heartily on public transport). The questions that end each chapter add more delight for those who suffered through the often boring lessons on Australian history which isn't really boring at all (see this book for details). I couldn't recommend it highly enough. You'd be [...]

    13. Brilliant book by a brilliant writer. This should be encouraged reading for all Australians as it taught me more than my entire school education about Australian history. The chapters and sections are easy to read and it flows well. The style of writing makes it very enjoyable read, although I laughed aloud too much for it to be a great book to read in public.

    14. I love Ben Pobje's short form writing in The Age. Unfortunately, I am far too pretentious and self-important to appreciate this intentionally flippant style in a book about the extremely contentious subject that is the history of Australia. For anyone with an actual sense of houmour, I am sure that this will be a fantastic read.

    15. How To Write History As Reality TV RecapsYou'll laugh, chortle, snigger and if you haven't done your homework you'll wonder when the Difficult Second Season of Australia will happen. And the author might give you a reassuring hug. Buy this book and then read it.

    16. I loved this book. It was a very humorous overview of Australian history, written in typical larrikin style. Remember not to take it literally readers! The author pokes fun for entertainment purposes only.

    17. A cheeky & irreverent take on Australian history from a 21st century perspective. Many laugh out loud moments!

    18. I'm a Ben Probjie fan and anything he writes is fine by me, be it MKR reviews, Australian history or tweets. Recommended.

    19. Entertaining, well-researched, sharp and sardonic Australian history, in the style of the English classic of the 1920s, "1066 and All That".
