Read Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened Online Free - 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:
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!

I absolutely loved it, and I know I'll visit this book again and again. My only sad: the alot does not make an appearance.
SO I DEMAND A SEQUEL! I DEMAND IT ALOT!

My assistant introduced me to this book, and I immediately fell in love.
Oh Allie Brosh, where have you been all my life?
Oh. You were on the internet. And apparently all the cool kids have known about you for ages.
Here's a link to her website just in case you've been living under a rock like me...

I loved this! It consistently had me laughing so hard I was almost crying. I've been a huge fan of Allie's blog for years, and really the only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because I'd already read quite a few of the "chapters". I still really recommend this though, both to those who are n...

I don't think I've seen a book that most of my friends agree on as much as this one. It seems everyone loves it.
You would have to be a turd to not love this book. Allie Brosh is most awesome.
Allie, You should come and play with us on Goodreads. We are nice people. Most of us are somewhat sane....

Initial reaction: This book deserves ALL THE STARS!
You knew that was coming, right? :) On a serious note, I loved Allie Brosh's funny, honest, and charming account of her life through the artwork and narration in "Hyperbole and a Half." This book is a compilation of several stories Brosh has told...

“Desperation breeds ingenuity”
It was definitely a witty, funny read, many times it was so hilarious, often, twisted and yet, still very relatable. It was also sometimes sad but very genuine. Just salute to the author for simply admitting the lousiest things that sometimes come across our h...

How many stars do I give this one????
Some things I figured out while reading Hyperbole and a Half:
Whooops, sorry – got distracted. Okay, where was I? Oh yeah, stuff I learned.
I think there’s a good chance I adopted clones of Allie Br...

I tend to stay away from humoristic memoirs because some of the ones I’ve read in the past have let me down. A lot of them rely too heavily on shock value as their primary source for humor and that’s a strategy that wears thin rather quickly. This book is different. In fact this book is actually...

I'd like to say I liked this book - I did try to. And I can't deny the freaky power of Allie Brosh's crudely drawn illustrations to evoke complicated emotions and ideas.
But I'm tired of navel-gazing blogs turned into books - this one reminded me over and over again of Jen Lancaster - both Brosh...
