    One thought on “Why Me?The Very Important Emails of Bob Servant”

    1. I. LOVE. THIS. BOOK. It is amazing and hilarious, it makes me want to sign up for spam email. I can't wait to see the tv show and listen to the radio show.

    2. A good(ish) idea, but feebly realised. My problem was that I didn't entirely believe the replies. Whether they were just tidied up, or whether they are fiction to one degree or another, I am not sure, but the tome of voice seemed pretty similar throughout. I think I read the first of the 3 books, and thought it was funny. This, the third, is, on the whole, not much in the way of entertainment. It's possible, not being a Scot, that some of the Scottish references mean nothing to me. All in all, a [...]

    3. At times quite funny. Novel idea and made me want to reply to online scam artists.However by the end of the book I must confess I was starting to lose interest - some of the jokes started to become a bit repetitive.

    4. From the moment I started reading this I could not stop laughing; read it in 24 hours, choking with giggles, shaking the bed. Silly and surreal. Funniest thing I've read since I can remember - possibly ever.

    5. A stocking filler book that raised a laugh and helped pas the time on a boring train journey but too repetitive to get more than two stars.

    6. A very funny book :D Love this guy's humor. Brilliant! I laught my way through the entire book.I think I have to check out the two previous books about Bob Servant as well.

    7. "Why Me? The Very Important Emails of Bob Servant" sees Bob Godzilla Servant, "a former cheeseburger magnate and semi-retired window cleaner," and a 64-year-old resident of the Dundee suburb Broughty Ferry, conversing with spam emailers turning their requests for money, or their looking for a husband, into surreal and funny conversations.For example there is a conversation about buying 50,000 barrels for $50,000 and how this could put Dundee on the map with Bob supporting his conversation with n [...]

    8. Continuing his correspondence with would-be email scammers, Neil Forsyth's alter ego Bob Servant continues to give as good as he gets. Nice book to dip into - very funny.

    9. As it says in the Bible, this book would be worth reading just for Bob's suggestion as to how Deadeye the fleet-footed wonderboy should celebrate scoring a goal.
