Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened

Written by: Allie Brosh

First line: It seems like there should be some sort of introduction to this.

Why you should read this book: Most Internet-savvy people are probably familiar with Allie Brosh, who published a completely random and intentionally badly-drawn comic featuring hilarious stories from her life, fell suddenly prey to the blackest depression, and then, still depressed, drew two comics about depression that are now held up as some of the best discussions of mental illness on the Internet. This book includes those comics, many other comics, some of which are not available online, and some other textual stuff. A fast, funny, real, touching, smart, and emotional book.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You will brook no insult to our canid friends, no matter how silly a dog might be. Also, you believe that Allie has always love hot sauce.
