Ali's book of tall tales by Ali Williams with James Griffin
Reviewed by Alex McLeod (Year 9) as part of the 50 Book Challenge
This is a semi-biography about All Black Ali Williams, written while he was on the injury bench with a hamstring injury throughout the 2009 season. It is spread out randomly throughout the book and is hilarious!
The hilarious side of it is superb. He also has some really good yarns including the time he waved to Mariah Carey in a Paris nightclub in 2002.
The only bits I thought were a bit boring were the warnings of the book!
I think it would be a great book for anybody who wants a good laugh, who has an interest in rugby, and who wants to know what it would be like to be an All Black.
