I have very mixed feelings about this. I've been following Allie's blog for years, and am a huge fan. The book was absolutely fabulous except for the parts where she talks about what a horrible person she is. Which is, unfortunately, a lot of the book. I understand she wrote a lot of it during her depression, and I understand completely, but watching someone dissecting her personality to show how awful she is... it's really, really painful, because I've been there myself, and honestly it got kind of boring towards the end because she kept coming back to the "I'm a shitty person" theme. It gets repetitive. I understand why she wrote it, but her editors should have stepped in and cut some of it. But still, the good parts were fantastic because when she's funny she's awesome, and I'm glad she left the stories in about recovering from the depression because those are meaningful and not just "I hate myself" over and over again. I do hope she's feeling better... ( )

Oh, crap. I feel bad, now that I see this was a Goodreads best of 2013. Not that I didn't like it -- when Brosh writes about her dogs I want to laugh and cry all at once -- but maybe I'm not neurotic enough to want to follow her into her shame spirals. Her depression just seemed boring to me. Make more funny! ( )

Allie Brosh writes very funny and often deeply moving blog posts. Many are stories about being one of those Weird Kids, and all of the stories are told using what appear to be a young child's drawings. They're not. They're beautifully crafted pieces of art that capture a situation and emotions perfectly. Other stories are about being the adult who (mostly) grew up after being one of those Weird Kids, and the weird things that they still do and that still happen to them, such as ending up with pets like the Simple Dog (who is) and the Helper Dog (who isn't). Eventually some of these posts were collected into a book along with some new material, and the transformation has worked well. It's hilariously funny, even in the darker moments; and that includes the two pieces on depression. Brosh wrote about her experience with depression in a way that gets over to people who haven't been through it what it feels like, and gives those of us who have something we can point at. That. That's what's inside our heads, and knowing that it's only inside our heads and not outside doesn't make it go away. But it can help in hanging on, and so can having someone who's been there hoping you'll find your own piece of corn. And every single story in the book, including that one, has places that made me laugh out loud.

Some of them made me laugh hard enough to hurt with every single drawing. The God of Cake: don't get between a small child and a birthday cake. Not even if the cake is meant for someone else. Dinosaur: being attacked in your own home by a goose demonstrating that geese are descended from dinosaurs. It's also very easy to identify with much of this book. Yes, I could see my sister and me at a young age trolling our parents should someone have been malicious enough to present us with a toy that recorded sounds and played them back. The blog and book are called Hyperbole and a Half for good reason, with hyperbole being a component of many of the stories, but they're not pure fiction and there's truth at the bottom. It's very funny, so much so that it's probably a good thing that I first read this book sitting on a very enveloping sofa and not on a chair that I could easily fall off. So yes, buy this book. ( )

So I accidentally deleted my past reviews on this book. Which made me swear. Alot.

And now I don't have the energy to write another. ( )

Brosh has an odd way of looking at the world and an uncanny ability to write about her personal — and specific — circumstances so that those of us who are even more odd can identify. ... Think of Brosh as a visceral, brutally honest David Sedaris — with badly drawn images — and buy this book.
 
It would be easy to dismiss Brosh as unnecessarily self-deprecating. But it seems that it’s the sheer intensity of her critical self-consciousness and conscious self-criticalness that people have connected with so deeply. By revealing the selfish grotesqueness of everyday humanity, the stories encourage us to become more reflexive of our inherent flaws, which can be both productive and humbling. And also, it would be nothing short of ironic to criticise Brosh for her almost complete lack of subtlety when the premise of the book is embedded right there in the title: it’s all about hyperbole.
