Adulthood Is a Myth is a pretty hilarious collection of drawings about being an adult – whatever that is. I found myself laughing out loud and thinking that the drawings were so totally me throughout the book – and I’m sure you can find some you relate with as well. For instance – shaking your computer and being violent towards it when the wifi is out when you could be reading a book or hanging out outside when it is down. Not wanting to deal with other people, etc. Definitely recommended for anyone who isn’t quite sure what being an adult is, and would much rather stay in bed all day doing nothing!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
About the Book
Do you love networking to advance your career? Is adulthood an exciting new challenge for which you feel fully prepared? Ugh. Please go away.
These casually drawn, perfectly on-point comics by the hugely popular young Brooklyn-based artist Sarah Andersen are for the rest of us. They document the wasting of entire beautiful weekends on the internet, the unbearable agony of holding hands on the street with a gorgeous guy, and dreaming all day of getting home and back into pajamas. In other words, the horrors and awkwardnesses of young modern life. Oh and they are totally not autobiographical. At all.
Adulthood Is a Myth presents many fan favorites plus dozens of all-new comics exclusive to this book. Like the work of fellow Millennial authors Allie Brosh, Grace Helbig, and Gemma Correll, Sarah’s frankness on personal issues like body image, self-consciousness, introversion, relationships, and the frequency of bra-washing makes her comics highly relatable and deeply hilarious.
