Publisher's Summary

These hilarious tales of urban terror reveal the dark truth hidden behind three seemingly innocent words - a phrase that you have seen a hundred times before but will never view in the same light again - WANTED TO SHARE. John Birmingham's rendering of a life in share houses will leave you laughing, cringing and reminiscing about your own brushes with the mad, bad residents of flat mate hell.

abridged version, too short!

Great book pity they only recorded about 50% of it for audio version.. not worth the expense. I was expecting the full novel

Easy and Light hearted

Pleasant to hear an Australian accent narrating an Australian story. If you're after a story without too much thought and a bit of humor I'd recommend it. For those considering share housing please keep in mind it's not all drugs and commune living.
