Synopsis

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!

    Honest and Hilarious

    I love Allie's blog, and her first book didn't disappoint. It contains a bunch of her greatest hits, along with new stories (my favourite new one: "Lost in the Woods"), all in her signature MS Paint illustrations and hilarious writing style. I love how honest and relatable her stories are.

    Loved it!

    Excellent read especially for anyone who has or knows someone with depession. I identified with so many things. Dogs moving made me laugh until I cried, and I too have a goose horror story!

    Beautifully illustrated, indeed. More fun to read when it's as an e-book than as a blog, since there are extra bits, and you can zoom in and really see the artwork. Funny, entertaining, and definitely written by someone who has obviously dealt with depression. She makes depression more tolerable, in an "I've so been there, and I know what you're going through" kind of way, that is also completely hilarious at the same time. Well worth the read, and I'm not sad that I don't have it as a paper version, since this was the original format that I read her other work in anyway.

    Hyperbole and a Half

    Not sure what to write here on this book. It's very different. It's funny because it's all real and true. ALL of it. It definitely should have been longer though.
