Year 8, Book 99

99. Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem and Other Things that Happened by Allie Brosh

Drawn (literally) from her crudely drawn webcomic Hyperbole and Half Brosh pulls together a collection of stories about her life from her childhood to present day. I am not a regular reader of Hyperbole and Half. I generally just read it when one of the comics gets heavily passed around such as the ones she wrote about her depression. Obviously if you are a fan of the web comic you’ll like this book. Though I’m not sure how much if any of it is original material not previously featured online. For the most part I enjoyed the book though I’m not sure I generally share the same humor sensibilities that Brosh does, so I wasn’t over the moon about it like so many other people I follow on social media are. I guess that’s why I don’t read the comic on a regular basis either. I give it a 7 out of 10.
