Adulthood Is a Myth Reviews
If you think you are exceptional, a magical person, someone whose heart is pure, and thus can do no wrong; if you have lived a life filled with success, self-confidence, good skin, clean rooms, an excellent wardrobe, top-notch grooming, and a positive outlook; if you are a person with straight teeth (all of them), thick hair, (and none sprouting in unwanted places), excellent carriage, and toned muscles, I have two things to say to you. First, please die, now. You are clearly an invading species ...more
It is a truth universally acknowledged, that if you are socially awkward, you're going to feel identified with this book.
Sarah Andersen captures in simple and funny comics, the essence of being awkard and what growing up is all about...
...avoiding old classmates!
I am extremely tired of the word "relatable"... BUT BOY IF THERE EVER WAS A MOMEMT FOR IT!
This collection of webcomics had me actually laughing out loud, had me saying "YES!", had me pointing out page after page to my boyfriend.
It's silly and cute, but also deeply truthful to the fears and elations of people who live online. I loved it, and will definitely be picking up her second volume!
Oh this was just glorious. All bookworms and introverts NEED to read this. NEEEEED, I TELL YOU. I was just about laughing my head off in companionable fear with the author over adulthood. Adulthood is a myth. And also just ugh. I would happily sign up for a refund, okay? Ahem.
So this is a book of 100% comic strips. you've probably seen some of Sarah's Scribbles around the internet. (I have anyway.) But this has a) more, and b) it's just the kinda book you're going to want to slap in extrovert-h ...more
یکی از بهترین کمیک هایی بود که توی عمرم دیدم و خوندمش ^_^ فوق العلاده با نمک خصوصا جاهایی که تفاوت بین یک دختر نوجوون با جوون رو نشون میده ولی جالبش اینجاست که همیشه یه چیزی هست که یک دختر توی هر سنی بهش اهمیت بده و به اصطلاح سوزنش روش گیر کنه :))
سوزن شخصیت کارتنی این کتاب روی چیزهای مشترکی که باهاش دارم حسابی گیر کرده بود و برای همینه که عاشقش شدم مثل :
من نمیخوام بزرگ شم ! مامان جان گفتن اینکه همه ی دوستام الان دوتا بچه دارن رو متوقف کن ! پیلیز ! :)) :|
آدمی که حالا هستم ...

Is adulthood an exciting new challenge for which you feel fully prepared?
Ugh. Please go away.
I was writing down some thoughts for two reviews, one of a Mishima book and the other of The Bell Jar, but at the moment, I don’t feel like dedicating so much time to that kind of introspection, since in my case, reviewing a book is almost never writing a simple summary. So I will deal with all those books next year, while focusing on other works which are also existentially complex but from a differe ...more
Hilarious, relatable short book! :D
I am veeeerry behind on learning about Sarah Andersen's work. I've seen her comics floating around on social media for years, laughed at them, wondered how such simplistic drawings could be so relatable, and then moved on without giving it so much as a second thought.
Then I stumbled upon Adulthood Is A Myth, and now I'm a big fan.
Adulthood Is A Myth isn't so much a comic book in that it doesn't tell a continuous story, but it is a book of comics - they are unrelated but well worth reading at o ...more
