about

Do you love networking to advance your career? Is adulthood an exciting new challenge for which you feel fully prepared? Ugh. Please go away.

2016 GOODREADS CHOICE AWARD WINNER FOR GRAPHIC NOVELS AND COMICS!

These casually drawn, perfectly on-point comics by the hugely popular young Brooklyn-based artist Sarah Andersen are for the rest of us. They document the wasting of entire beautiful weekends on the internet, the unbearable agony of holding hands on the street with a gorgeous guy, and dreaming all day of getting home and back into pajamas. In other words, the horrors and awkwardnesses of young modern life. Oh and they are totally not autobiographical. At all.

Adulthood Is a Myth presents many fan favorites plus dozens of all-new comics exclusive to this book. Like the work of fellow Millennial authors Allie Brosh, Grace Helbig, and Gemma Correll, Sarah's frankness on personal issues like body image, self-consciousness, introversion, relationships, and the frequency of bra-washing makes her comics highly relatable and deeply hilarious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love love love this! I got this as a gift, my mom, mother-in-law, friends, and myself can relate to this quirky character. It's one of my favorite comics. I also bought her second book "Big Mushy Happy Lump" (as good).

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cute A cute little book. The animals are adorable. I laughed out loud at the unibrow comic, and I could relate to some of comics about budgeting, dating and body image. I found it harder to appreciate the recurring "I hate everybody" theme and some of the commentary on being an artist. I think most people with fb/internet are familiar with her style and know what to expect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Basically the anthology of my life Actual footage of me living my "adult" life

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing style but... The drawings and design of the planner is great. The only problem is that because of the texture of the pages, it smudges easily, and if you use a pencil it's too light to be seen.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not for Me Look this was a cute and VERY quick read but it is hard for me to give it more than 2 stars. I know it is silly to pick on the art but...the art is very amateurish. I know. I know. That is part of its charm but I had to point it out. With her limited artistic abilities she does do a good job but we are not looking at the work of the next great artist. The other reason I can't go higher than 2 stars is that - although I related to a lot of the cartoons - I never LAUGHED at any of them. It would have been nice not to just nod and think "too true" but to actually laugh. Even though I only gave it two stars it was a fun (VERY) quick read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like reading my diary Every single panel in this book is relatable to the extreme. It's so well done and extremely honest about life as an introvert and/or person with anxiety. It's HIGHLY recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from There's a little Sarah in us all! Adulthood Is a Myth is a collection of one-page comics depicting Sarah's life as a millennial trying to make it in the adult world and it is HILARIOUS and all too true. I challenge anyone between the ages of 18-35 to go through the book and NOT find something that applies to them. There’s a little bit of Sarah in all of us, and I totally love it.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not worth the price I was kind of disappointed in this. I thought it would be a lot more like Introvert Doodles that came out late last year. I read this one in about 5-10 minutes, and it wasn't that funny. It was entertaining, but more in a smile and "blow a quick breath out your nose" laugh here and there kind of way. For the price I paid, I expected more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So relatable I feel like Sarah Anderson basically writes about my life. I loved her comics online and so I had to buy the book and support the author. I think I may have to get the second book too!
Date published: 2017-03-09
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved this! Love these comics! I would go "me" with almost every one. If you're a fan of "Sarah's Scribbles" I recommend buying this/borrowing it from the library to support the artist's work. If you're a really huge fan, buy this so you can have your own copy on hand for whenever adulthood gets you down. Haha, I wouldn't mind if the artist drew a comic on escaping reality by reading her comic or a collection of them (like this book).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Funny and very, very real. I love Sarah Andersen's comics -- see them on Tumblr and Facebook all the time. It's real, it's funny, and it's absolutely adorable. Having a paper version to flip through is just like reading a picture book as a kid - just another reminder that I refuse to grow up and join adulthood.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE IT <3 I absolutely adore Sarah's Scribbles and almost died with happiness when she announced on her Facebook page that there was going to be a Sarah's Scribbles book! I pre-ordered it first chance I got and anxiously awaited it. Adulthood is a Myth will not disappoint fans of Sarah's Scribbles or any millennial looking for a good laugh and relatable stories.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Adulthood is a myth and we're all suckers for falling for it. This collection of "scribbles" (cutesy drawings, foreal) proves it in the most amusing way possible. It hits the right notes and makes you exclaim, "I KNEW IT!" or "THAT'S SO ME!" With the self-deprecating, aw-shucks kind of humour that is what makes Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half and The Oatmeal's 5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth and Other Useful Guides, amongst others, so endearingly charming, "Adulthood is a Myth" is an instant winner that will turn your frown upside down in 20 minutes!
