This is like "My Lesbian Experience with Loneliness" if there was no healing and it was all self-defeating.

While Allie Brosh is an eccentric, funny character when it comes to recalling her past, her self-reflections were so self-destructive that they were counterproductive to any self-actualization. She imagines herself as a naturally shitty person with a cynical attitude and self-hatred attitude towards her own conduct. She focusses more on what she and other shouldn't do that she ignores what all of us could be doing to be better.

It's incredibly interesting to read her story, both as a unique individual and as a time capsule for 2013. I get the impression that everyone felt the ways she did in this book and that's why it was so popular. I'm glad that mental health has been taken more seriously now and that people are resorting towards real solutions for their problems, not some homebrew, pessimistic philosophy of "I'm an awful person, but everyone and everything else is so pathetic, naive, worthless, and futile that I cannot help but laugh at the absurdity of everything as a superficial means to cope."

I enjoyed this but I didn't love it. I had already seen some of the content on the website and I think reading it in smaller chunks is better than just plowing through this as a whole book. It's a little bit of Hyperbole overload.

Silly, funny, hilarious!!! Wish I could put my synopsis and/or review in pictures. Instead this is what appears on back cover. It is a bulleted 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.”

This book really appealed to my sense of humor. The Goose Story and Thoughts and Feelings made me laugh harder than I have in a long time. The drawings are hilarious. Not sure who to recommend this book to but maybe check out the blog at http://hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com/p/store.html to see if it makes you laugh.

Some parts of this book were extremely funny yet other parts just didn't grab my attention at all. ( )

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.
