Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh
How should I even begin to write this down? This book is super hilarious! The illustration of her thoughts, actions, metaphor... and wait, her dogs too!!! There are so many areas in my life that was being written down or drawn into this book. There are many instances where thoughts were very well illustrated with the exact mind-blogging mindset.
Coming from a household with at least 1 family member with depression, I can very well relate to what they are going through. And with Ms Allie's way from bringing out with her comics, it's really enriching and in some way, it seems funny too. Not the illness itself, but the times when you have to go through with them.
Finally, self-awareness of your own sick truth. I think everyone could very well relate to this. It's really good how one would struggle with so many self-contradictory-mind-blowing-sick-arguments-in-oneself. It's so good that you can just put the book down and by laughing it off and say "Hey, I've been through that!"
Really good. Well balance topics.
And stories about cakes too... It's really really funny!
Note: Even I do not have dogs at home, those stories that she wrote about Simple and Helpful... HAHAHA!!!
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
