Editorial Reviews

Review

The Roommates [is] a collection of anonymous housemate horror stories that draws a picture of a twenty-first century household and how it’s changing impossibly quickly...Raw stories that feel honest and authentic.”—The Washington Post

“A fine choice to pack into your college-bound child’s backpack—if only to remind them, upon meeting their new randomly selected roommate, that it could probably be worse.”—The Boston Globe

“Hilarious…agonizing chronicles of the passive aggressive and the plain incompatibles.”—Publishers Weekly

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is a series of everyday memories from people who have had roommates. While there a few odd stories, mostly they are the stuff of daily life. Even the extremely cruel behavior from the first story is told as straight narrative. The chapters appear to be direct contributions from the author's friends with no real editing. It is mildly entertaining and probably should be marketed as a memoir.

Format: Kindle Edition
This book is supposed to be a collection of 2 to 3 page stories about roommate experiences. They are all so poorly written, in the same rambling, juvenile, disjointed manner, that I suspect they were all written by the same 14 year old.
