Big Mushy Happy Lump by Saran Andersen [Review]

I read somewhere recently that you shouldn’t start your review with a note that you got the book for review from the publisher. I like to be upfront about things, so I’m including it anyway, and I also like to give credit where credit is due. Publishers sharing titles free of charge means a lot to bloggers, so why shy away from it?

This will be a short review because the book was funny and smart and sometimes so true it hurt, so I don’t feel the need to dissect each panel. Sarah Andersen never fails to write content that I identify with in such a way as to make me feel both part of the in crowd and a slight failure as a human being. Adulthood is a Myth was one of my 5-star reads from last year, though I thought this collection wasn’t *quite* as strong.

But there was still this:

So…saying it wasn’t as good for me as the first collection isn’t really saying a lot. You should check these books out if you haven’t seen them. I feel the need to buy another copy just to cut apart so that I can frame 70% of the pages.

  1. I feel like her cartoons are so good/true/simple they’re pretty close to achieving book nerd cultural icon status.
