Stand Alone: Publish 3/8/16: 112 Pages
I received a copy of this from the publisher through Net Galley for an honest review.
Are you a special snowflake? Do you love networking to advance your career? Have you never wasted a fresh new day surfing the internet? Ugh. This book is not for you. Please go away.
Sarah’s Scribbles — casually drawn, perfectly on-point comics by young Brooklyn-based artist Sarah Andersen — confront head-on the horrors, anxiety, and awkwardness of modern adult life. From the agony of holding hands with a gorgeous guy to the yawning pit of hell that is the wifi gone down to the eye-watering pain of eating too-hot pizza because one cannot stand to wait for it to cool down, Sarah fearlessly documents it all.
Like the work of fellow Millennial authors Allie Brosh, Grace Helbig, and Gemma Correll, Sarah’s total frankness on extremely personal issues such as body image, self-consciousness, introversion, relationships, and bra-washing makes her comics highly relatable and consistently hilarious.
I came across this cute little book up for review and thought I would give it a shot. Now I don’t follow the author on social media but I’m sure I’ve seen shared comics from time to time. Not a whole lot to this book except for some clever comics depicting aspects of adult life that we all can totally relate to. I found myself chuckling and wanting to share with the spousal unit or friends that I thought might appreciate the topic at hand.
This book would make a fun little gift to most any adult of any age as there is much inside to which we all can appreciate. Some of it is slanted more towards a girl’s perspective, but there is still a lot of material that is gender neutral. Personally I really enjoyed the child-free jokes that were included. While I said I wasn’t a follower before, this little book has made me a fan and my next stop after this review is to add Ms. Anderson to my likes.
Cute book, clever and relatable content that would make a fun gift.
