Hilarious! I had heard about this book while travelling in Australia and doing the whole share house thing. It definately made me feel better about my messy, loud roomates. I do feel though, that some of his stories are a stretch of the truth, but I could be wrong. Maybe it's just wishful thinking. This book was hilarious and disgusting and I'd recommend it to anyone who has ever had a sharehouse in Australia. Though the book takes place mostly in Brisbane, he does pass through Sydney as well which was interesting. It was fun to be familiar with the neighbourhoods in which Birmingham lived. Great read!
