Hyperbole and a Half

hyperbole and a half allie broshHyperbole and a Half: unfortunate situations, flawed coping mechanisms, mayhem and other things that happened by Allie Brosh, 4/5

Brosh’s blog is without doubt one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen, but the book format didn’t really work for me.  I feel that her hilarious stories are meant to be scrolled through, not read at the rate of two panels and a paragraph per page, and her weirdly expressive artwork suits the computer screen best, in my opinion.  Also, there is soooo much swearing.  Usually, I’m a fan of expletives used for comedic purposes, but I guess I don’t like seeing them in print.  In action movies: great.  TV shows: fine, if it’s clever.  Online content: ditto.  Books: no thank you I can’t believe they typed that my eyes are burning.

[Why I read it: I love the blog.]
