Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"A hilarious collection" (Mashable)

"Will certainly help you, should you perhaps decide to indulge in a spot of "self-gifting" in this instance, survive Christmas with your more crazed relatives" (Rachel Cooke Observer)

"Fantastic, hilarious, emotional" (Mayaland)

"You may have to push this book away for fear you'll hurt yourself laughing, but its wisdom and humanity - no hyperbole here - are too magnetic to keep at bay for long" (Mary Pols People Magazine)

"Honest, poignant and ridiculously silly in all the best ways and I'm better for having read it. Plus, doggies!" (Jenny Lawson, The Bloggess)

Présentation de l'éditeur

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 of 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.

Allie Brosh is some kind of genius. Her ability to express complex concepts and life situations-- using only her Macbook touchpad (!!!)-- is a testament to this fact. She succeeds where even literature has often failed, such as in accurately capturing profound depression and nailing animal psychology.

This book included the best of the online blog, and added some instant classics. I was happy to find that they did not recycle some of the earlier blog entries which I never found to be at quite so high a standard.

Unfortunately, the vibrant "MS Paint"-type colours did not translate well at all in this print edition, resulting in a dull aesthetic compared to viewing the comic on a computer monitor. This is clearly no fault of the author's, but slightly disappointing nevertheless.

Well worth the wait to see the new entries, and to see that Allie is (hopefully!) doing better.

Ce livre m'a rendu le sourire plusieurs fois et fait ricaner à plusieurs reprises en public... j'adore. j'adore les illustrations, j'adore ce qui est écrit, car forcément ça nous "parle" ... c'est juste, c'est touchant, c'est plein d'humour et de finesse... c'est triste aussi par moments, ... bref, c'est vivant ! j'aime j'aime et je comprends que le New York Times l'ait mise au pinacle!

This book is way better than cigarettes. 29 octobre 2013
Par Lac - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I got the book this morning, and as I was hobbled by pain from an ACL surgery and unable to take painkillers because they would make me loopy at work, instead I read this all day. (Shhhhh. It is okay. I also helped customers.)

There are a million things I love about this book, but I can start with the fact that each chapter is printed on different-colored pages than the ones on either side of it, which makes the book look like a rainbow when it is closed. A RAINBOW, GUYS.

The Depression chapters (previously published on her blog) are revelations to those who have experienced depression and touchstones of understanding for those who have not. The Dog chapters are hilarious to both dog-lovers and cat-lovers (AKA dog haters). The chapters that peek into her childhood make me wish I remembered anything about my life before I was twelve. But you know what? I'm going to take a page from this book, and just imagine that my childhood was just as fantastical, wild, revelatory, unintentionally hilarious, and unique.

Yes, there are a few chapters that are repeats from the blog. Sadly, the fish incident did not make it... that one is still my favorite. But the ones that did make it are definitely worth the re-read. Also, the majority of the book is new material, including some introspective chapters ("Thoughts and Feelings" and the two-part "Identity" chapters). Those, to me, were the best ones of the whole book. I love that the author is so freaking honest (can you swear on Amazon? Imma go with no) about EVERYTHING. She holds this mirror up to her guiding principles and then picks everything apart until she's left with this uncivilized and selfish husk, which she then covers up in a sparkly jumpsuit to make it all better. WHICH IS SOMETHING WE ALL DO. We're all basically uncivilized and selfish. But this author has the guts to admit it.

YOU ARE BRAVE, ALLIE. YOU ARE.

I feel strangely proud of the author for producing this book. Proud like a father, even though she is no relation to me and I have never really met her. I want to give her all the gold stars possible. If there were more than five available for this review, I would have gone with more than five. All the way up to eleventy.

Buy this book. Read it. Go read the blog. Re-read everything. Then buy the book for your friends.

Give it ALL the stars! 30 octobre 2013
Par J. Garner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I've been a fan of Allie Brosh's (Allie? Can I call her Allie? Is that weird?) blog for years now, so I was never not buying her book. Her blog is less a series of wordy posts about what happened that day and more comic strip about fish murders, spiders, spaghatta nadles, and the single strangest childhood since Drew Barrymore's.

Her book? It's an offline edition of her blog. So in other words, it's just about perfect. Some new...chapters? Posts? What do you even call these? Anyway, parts of the book are new, others are from the blog, all put together in something approaching a coherent narrative. I'm not terribly upset about blog posts being included in the book. It wouldn't make sense without some of them, and some others are just so good and so well-known that to leave them out would make the book incomplete.

It's much bigger than I had expected, containing a good eighteen chapterposts from 10 to 50 pages long each, but that doesn't matter because you'll read the whole thing in one sitting if you're not a communist. The first chapter alone has swearing at a two-year-old, time travel, and nudity of the most gratuitous sort. In that order.

The thing about this book (and Allie's blog) is...beyond the laughs, she's actually really good. Her two posts on what depression is like (both included here) are the best explanations I've ever seen. And what look initially like simple stick figure drawings are actually surprisingly detailed illustrations that convey a full range of emotion. The art is good, the stories are fantastic, and her telling of them is what makes it all work. Most importantly of all, the cover is a pleasing shade of yellow.

Buy a copy for yourself. Buy one for the office, one for the house, one to keep in the gentleman's closet, one for your neighbors, one for everyone you know for Christmas. You'll like it, they'll like it, it'll class up both your workplace and your toilet.

Hilarious and a half. And Heartbreaking, more than a half. (that's only 43.22% Hyperbole btw) 29 octobre 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

I just got this book this morning via kindle. I thought I'd take a quick peek via the website at what I bought (holding off on immediately opening things I bought, recieved or otherwise obtained is NOT one of my strong points. I would make a very shitty postman). Of course, a few hours later, here I am at work, having done nothing of the list of things that have been overdue since last week, and still very happy I spent my morning this way.

There's a fair few bits of the blog coming back (although it's mostly the ones I was happy to re-read due to either being so brainnumbingly good I just delighted in them, or one of the few bits I haven't re-read a million times already), but a substantial part of the book is entirely new stuff.

And the new stuff is GOOOOOD. If you, like any reasonable person (and quite a few certifiable people) loved her insights on depression and the problems arising when little boys and/or girls get mistaken for grown-ups just because they've been around on this earth for a few decades, you'll love her new stuff. Her ruthless disection of the many ways in which her ideal of herself is not anywhere near the person she is, is something we can all relate to.

And if you don't struggle for breath from laughter at the dog Q&A, I don't know what to tell you, except that you might be even more horrible of a person than Allie is.

So, to finish off: one question for the author. From my stupid cat.
Q: Srsly, why never bees?

If you enjoyed the blog, support the author 2 décembre 2013
Par Chris F. Willis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The majority of negative reviews seem to come from these camps:

1. There's not enough all-new, previously unpublished content
2. The new content that is there isn't as funny as the original blog
3. I don't like the graphic novel-ish format and prefer reading online
4. The book contains too many F-bombs for my taste

... to which I counter:

If you are already a fan of Allie's previous work, support her by buying her book. Regardless of the ratio of new vs republished work, by investing in the book, you can forever own a piece of Allie's work and hold it in your hands, and share it with others in the physical world in a more permanent and tangible way than pushing a button to just send them yet another link. Not to mention that it's the right thing to do. Invest a little coin to support a struggling artist who has been brave enough to bare her soul and gracious enough to previously share her work for free. By buying her book, you send the author a vote of confidence and tell her that her work has value.

If you are not already familiar with Allie's work, read the "Best of" section of the Hyperbole and a Half blog first. Then understand that since that blog was written, the author has been openly struggling with debilitating depression and her new work comes from a much darker place. Given that, the raw language and journey into the abyss in her newer pieces may not be your cup of tea. And that's okay. Simply move along, then, nothing more to see here.
