    One thought on “Oxford Student Pranks: A History of MischiefMayhem

    1. Maria

      I would have given it 5 full stars at the beginning. However, towards the end, where there was the most material available it was lacking. Massively so. It was a light amusing read, but the author should have put more research into it.

    2. Alzy

      Most of the anecdotes were interesting and entertaining but I felt that sometimes the author tried to be too funny and some of his jokes got a little old.
