Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things…

by Allie Brosh

Touchstone | October 29, 2013 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened is rated 5 out of 5 by 9.
FROM THE PUBLISHER:
Every time Allie Brosh posts something new on her hugely popular blog Hyperbole and a Half the internet rejoices.

Touching, absurd, and darkly comic, Allie Brosh’s highly anticipated book Hyperbole and a Half showcases her unique voice, leaping wit, and her ability to capture complex emotions with deceptively simple illustrations.

This full-color, beautifully illustrated edition features more than fifty percent new content, with ten never-before-seen essays and one wholly revised and expanded piece as well as classics from the website like, “The God of Cake,” “Dogs Don’t Understand Basic Concepts Like Moving,” and her astonishing, “Adventures in Depression,” and “Depression Part Two,” which have been hailed as some of the most insightful meditations on the disease ever written.

Brosh’s debut marks the launch of a major new American humorist who will surely make even the biggest scrooge or snob laugh. We dare you not to.

FROM THE AUTHOR:
This is a book I wrote. Because I wrote it, I had to figure out what to put on the back cover to explain what it is. I tried to write a long, third-person summary that would imply how great the book is and also sound vaguely authoritative—like maybe someone who isn’t me wrote it—but I soon discovered that I’m not sneaky enough to pull it off convincingly. So I decided to just make a list of things that are in the book:

Pictures
Words
Stories about things that happened to me
Stories about things that happened to other people because of me
Eight billion dollars*
Stories about dogs
The secret to eternal happiness*

*These are lies. Perhaps I have underestimated my sneakiness!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super funny! I love this book. Its very funny and I love how the art work is so crude but it still conveys the emotions. If you love this book you might want to check out her blog with the same name. I really like how this book isn't a compilation of her blog work, there are stories that are not on her blog.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A new fave! This book is hilarious, witty, charming, and just a fun read!! I will read it again, and again. I finished it in two days, and laughed so hard at some of the entries I couldn't speak! My only issue is that I wished instead of using terms like "Simple dog" and "Helper dog", that the author used either the names of her dogs, or more endearing terms for them. Maybe because I would have, but other than that....An excellent, excellent book!! Loved it!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HILARIOUS. My sister-in-law and I constantly send these back and forth to each other online; got her this book for Christmas and she said it was way better than she even expected, lots of new material too!  Love it.  Totally hilarious.  The drawings, omg...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ALL THE FEELS! "Because I am a serious, dignified person. And I don't want anyone to know I'm not." I've learnt more about myself already. Candid and comical lessons on life, geese, and dogs - what more is there to say? Thank you Allie Brosh for your wacky self and your masterful stick-figure drawings that have spawned countless internet memes for the ages!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best of 2013 Amusing, touching, and a light read for the situations where you need picking up. I read the blog and this is that and more. Highly recommended for all ages!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hilarious and Touching This book was just as funny as I knew it would be - so funny I was crying. Not too many duplicate entries from the blog, and those that were are some of the best ones. The ones you always re-read. I loved it immensely. (Review also posted to goodreads)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic I have been her website for a long while and was excited when the book was released. Most books from bloggers are just the same cartoons but in a book. This book is amazing and contains new content. I laughed and I cried (yeah, that's right) If you are thinking of buying this book, buy it, it is worth every dime.
