Book Review: Hyperbole and a Half

Book Review: Hyperbole and a Half | Newbery and Beyond

It’s been a long time since I read a book that made me laugh till I cried.  I read this whole book side by side with my husband, and we laughed until our sides hurt.  If you’re familiar with Allie Brosh’s blog of the same name, you’ll really enjoy this book.  (If you’re not, you need to check it out!)  The book includes posts from Brosh’s blog, along with several new stories.  The stories center around Brosh’s childhood, or her two dogs, or her quirks and habits.  She draws all the pictures herself, and they are wonderful–goofy and simplistic.  Each story is made up mostly of these pictures, which makes the book a very quick read.

In a word: Hilarious.  As long as you don’t mind some language, this book is a must read.
