Reviews

'I liked it because it has a bunch of funny, crazy, weird and just plain stupid things that will make you laugh and just want to read on...I wish it was longer.'

'I love the wacky facts like riding bikes 1 km off a plane into the sea, now that's cool! It's a really cool and funny sports book.'

'It is very exciting and after you've read it you can tell your family and friends about amazing sporting events, spills and thrills...It is great to read, like the Guinness Book of Records. I think the writer should write more books like this.'

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
