  1. this book is okay everyone else seems to find it way hilarious thatn me while it is true that some of the notes make you want to meet the authors of them and kind of find out just what the hell is wrong weith them, its overall pretty tame read english im curious to see some less restrained redblooded new york roommate notes, but maybe people round my neck of the woods dont bother writing notes, we just get punchy


  2. I love books that are compilations of found notes, but there was one thing about I Lick My Cheese that I could live without the author s commentary and or humorous speculation as to the story behind the notes.If you were to compare I Lick My Cheese to Frank Warren s PostSecret books, you d see what I mean Frank Warren doesn t explain the postcards he publishes, but instead leaves them open to interpretation by the reader.Oonagh O Hagan prefers to write a little blurb about each note In some case [...]


  3. Another silly book I happened to find at the dollar store, so why not give it a try Some parts of it were funny, some parts of it were meh.My one gripe was that some of the notes were difficult to read some really bad penmanship , and having the note transcribed underneath would have been helpful to the reader Anyone that has had roommates the good, the bad and or the ugly would probably get some laughs from this book.The website that this book stemmed from roommatesanonymous seems to be gone, b [...]


  4. The cover note I lick my cheese is the best note in the book I like the concept, but I think a funnier group of notes could have been found.Enter your notes at roommatesanonymous


  5. I found this to be a perusal book I couldn t bring myself to sit down and read through it page by page Overall its mildly amusing, but read it or don t your life isn t going to change much.



  6. The funniest thing about this book is the title After that, it leaves a lot to be desired.This is a compilation of actual hand written passive aggressive notes to roommates Some of them are quite funny, but most are just so so There is an author comment on each note, which drags the book down Then there are the notes that have handwriting that is illegible It makes it hard to enjoy the humor when you don t know what is written.I had high hopes for this book, but it was a fail.




  7. I did not go searching for this book I stumbled acrossed it while at the library Seeing as how I had some time to kill, I figured I would check this out for a day.I was sadly disappointed.This was wrote by a British author, so some of the jokes may not have been as funny to me being an American I really enjoy the random streams of Roommate Notes that get posted online, but these were no where near as hilarious I know humor is subjective, but I was extremely underwhelmed and cannot even recall on [...]


  8. This book contained a great many funny notes that had me laughing for a good long time, however there were also many that I did not find funny at all They were very meh , and I found myself wondering why they were included While I m on that subject, some of the authors commentaries were very funny she included some of her own experiences and funny stories of flat sharing, which added a little bit extra to the book, but again, I feel that some of the commentaries were added just to pad the book o [...]


  9. This very funny book appeals to the voyeur in all of us and presents uncensored evidence from everyday lives The pages contain reproductions of all sorts of notes between roommates along with the authors comments The notes run the gamut from angry, downright hostile, and irate to silly and sweet Living with roommates, as many of us learned at some point, is not for the faint of heart From the bedroom to the living room and all the filthy kitchens and bathrooms in between, every imaginable trial [...]


  10. This book makes an interesting and often very surprising read It reminded me how lucky I am with my flatmats at dorms and also that I was right to feel uncomfortable in my previous flat But there were two things that I did no like very much first, the notes are handwritten and often very hard to read The writer apparently encoded all of them so it would be nice to add a transcription to the illegible ones And then there are the writer s comments about the notes sometimes they werevery helpful be [...]


  11. I m a huge fan of these sorts of books such as Found, Mortified, and Post Secret I got this for Christmas and finished it in a few hours I really enjoyed it It s light and funny As someone who had to move out on her first roommate, I can completely appreciate where the writers of these notes are coming from However, some of the words stumped me because I believe their British terms, but the author s notes explained the situation well So if you re not at all familiar with British slang and don t [...]


  12. There s something about reading strangers notes to each other that I really enjoy that sounds super weird But the snapshot into people s lives most often without context that is very interesting and amusing This book was sort of like Passive Aggressive Notes, which I also enjoy.It was okay, not great Nothing to write home about, so if found notes isn t already something that interests you, this wouldn t really be the place to start For that, I recommend passiveaggressivenotes CONTENT There is so [...]


  13. The title I Lick My Cheese made me pick up this book If you have ever had a roommate you ll immediately understand This is a collection of notes left by real roommates to each other The author added commentary about who, what, why etc,I thought it would be a lot humorous, but I only had two laugh out loud moments my measure of humor It was a light read, good for a read fix if you are addicted to reading and need to read now and finish it quickly.


  14. I usually really like these types of books I didn t find that many of the notes funny or interesting and a huge amount were incredibly hard to read partly because of bad handwriting and sometimes because it was photocopied blurry and those that were funny or interesting were slightly ruined by the huge amount of text that accompanied it and funny remarks.I prefer to read this sort of book where it is simple note after note after note and we re left to form our own opinions.


  15. I could totally relate to this book Having flat shared with 7 other people, notes were continuously left around the place, increasingly ruder and angrier as the year went by Whilst other people didn t enjoy the authors notes, I did It broke up a book which can be flicked through, or time to read the explanations or thoughts behind the notes A throughly good read, especially if you have ever been in that position.


  16. Mehehe I couldn t help giggling out loud whilst reading this It s a great present for anybody who s faced or is thinking of facing flat sharing Read it before, during, and after the experience In hindsight there are many of these notes that I could relate to and several that I was glad I couldn t The only thing I didn t like was that quite a few of the self explanatory notes had comments from the author that added little to the read and would have stood stronger alone.


  17. A lively, quick read which transported me back to my years of college and house sharing Some great notes, some weird notes and some painfully familiar notes I ve had my share of anally retentive housemates obssessing over trivia, but my own personal nadir was a house mate who ate a pizza and drank a bottle of wine, leaving a note offering to replace them at a later date Leaving me hungry and facing a trek to the off licence.


  18. I Lick My Cheese and Other Notes From the Frontline of Flatsharing is an easy to read, amusing book It s a compilation of notes, written by people who share flats, covering a variety of subjects A few of the notes made me laugh out loud, but the biggest plus point for me was the fact that it didn t require much concentration


  19. Thought this one would be a lot funnier It was kind of boring and sad Brought to mind really rundown shithole apartments with cluttered, filthy kitchens and countertops all covered in dried food and goodness only knows what else And justhy bathrooms with grime everywhere Ew I m making myself sick.I would never want to live with a roommate Ever sefp pfI think once or twice I laughed out loud For like a second But just


  20. This was a hilarious collection of notes left by roomates Each page consists of a note left and the author either makes comment on the note or explains the situation I haven t laughed so hard since I read Shit my Dad Says I really enjoyed the imagination some people have and the excuses people use for their roomates I loved it Although the book seems long, it s quite a fast read, I finished it in an hour.


  21. The only thing that kept this one from a 5 star rating is the fact that I don t find gross to be synonymous with funny Gross is just gross.But other than the gross ones, which wasn t even half of them, this was hilarious I think anyone who has had to share space with another person for than a day can appreciate this.Also, some people are psycho, but that was hilarious in this context, too.


  22. I enjoyed this book however didn t feel the author s little quips accompanying the notes added anything at alle notes were enough in their own right I think instead of the author s opinions and anecdotes, most of which weren t funny and seemed rather forced, the note should have been transcribed, as some were hardly legible


  23. most of the actual notes are really funny written on all kinds of materials, discussing crazy flat sharing situations some we ve all been in, some surreally bizarre sadly, the author s comments exceed the amount of note content and are far from amusing the book would have been a hoot if it were only a collection of notes with much fewer comments meh.


  24. Thoroughly enjoyed this book That may be because I could relate to quite a lot of the notes throughout I must admit I skipped over some of the explanations as they were simply the authors thoughts rather than the actual back story to the note No doubt I will find myself flicking through this on a semi regular basis.


  25. It is funny, but there are many Europeon slang terms, flat, bum, blokeat are a little hard to understand at first and then the writing on the notes themselves is so poor that you find yourself squinting to see if you can read it Funny, but seriuosly don t buy it, swap it or find it at the library, laugh for a few minutes and then give it back.


  26. just laugh out loud funny i ve had the chance of sharing space with roomies back in college, and now, still am it s fun when you love the people your e with, but overall, it may be a hit or miss such an enjoyable book, definitely satisfies my voyeur tendencies and if you re fond of posting notes or lil pick me up post its like me, you d cherish this book, too


  27. This was an amusing collection of real notes left my roommates After finishing this quick read, I was happy and relieved that those days are over for me although my roommmates were great, I like my space These notes go to prove that if you re looking for a roommate, careful screening is a must
