If you live on the Internet you’ve probably seen this meme at some point:
You can thank Allie Brosh, who gained internet fame with her blog Hyperbole and a Half. The blog features her drawings which are both poorly drawn and magnificent at the same time.
Brosh uses her drawings to work through life’s issues and re-enact tales of her two crazy dogs.
I was laughing out loud pretty early on, so the novel was already heading for a strong rating.
And then Brosh talks about her long road through depression and the honesty she shows is… oh geez, I can’t believe I’m using this cliche… a breath of fresh air (I think I died a little but it’s 100% accurate).
I was completely sold already, and then I read the last chapter. Holy Chimichangas! I don’t want to spoil anything, but the subject really hit home for me.
I devoured this book in one day (and you should too) and can’t wait for Brosh’s new book!!
October is too far away.
Score: 5 Stars
