Publisher Description

Hilarious stories about life's mishaps from the creator of the immensely popular blog 'Hyperbole and a Half'. Fully illustrated with over 50% new material.

Hyperbole and A Half is a blog written by a 20-something American girl called Allie Brosh. She tells fantastically funny, wise stories about the mishaps of her everyday life, with titles like 'Why Dogs Don't Understand Basic Concepts Like Moving' and 'The God of Cake'. She accompanies these with naive drawings using Paint on her PC.

Brosh’s website receives millions of visitors a month and hundreds of thousands per day.
Now her full-colour debut book chronicles the many “learning experiences” Brosh has endured as a result of her own character flaws. It includes stories about her rambunctious childhood; the highs and mostly lows of owning a mentally challenged dog; and a moving and darkly comic account of her struggles with depression.

Poignant and uproarious - think Cyanide and Happiness but with story-lines, cake and dogs.

This book is Awesome! Buy it!

I only discovered Allie and her Hyperbole and a Half blog fairly recently and most of her stuff has me in stitches! Not only is it hilarious but I identify with so much of what she describes. The book is a mix of material from her blog and new material. Many of the ideas/things/situations she articulates in her clever text and illustrations are things most of us wouldn't ever quite discern but you find yourself going "Yes! That's exactly how it is! I would never have been able to describe that so perfectly." So clever and so funny!

Well worth the price - buy it

Most of my favourite blog posts are here with lots of new stuff. There is so much here that people will be able to relate to, it'll make you laugh uncontrollably at times and at others wish you could hug the author. Would have been 5 stars if there was an Alot lurking somewhere.
