Description

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!

    Depressing book. Appears to be written for those suffering from depression. Too many F-bombs; lazy writing. The high number of good reviews sadly reflects the dumbing down of America.

    The book is obviously meant to be displayed in portrait mode but only displays in landscape. It is confusing to read in landscape. Wish I didn't purchase. Try another ebook format.

    It is everything you should expect from Allie Brosh. Adorable, hilarious, on point, and shockingly relatable in almost every way. Supporting her is worth every cent. I just can't stave off a bit of disappointment. I expected to be...surprised? Impressed beyond belief? I definitely expected more, I think. But at the same time, that's not Allie's fault. Get the book.
