Adulthood is a Myth by Sarah Andersen

Adulthood is a Myth

Rating: ★★★★

Genre: Humor

Medium: Paperback, comics

Synopsis: With the occasional help from her bunny-friend, Andersen depicts common occurrences in adulthood with humor.  These topics include college, having a job, dealing with your body, and, of course, the fact that toenail nail polish never really comes off.  Andersen deals with these subjects using comics as her medium, which gives the audience a specific look at how frazzled we all are as we move from teenagers from adults.

Review: Andersen describes moments in her life as well as common moments in everybody’s lives with such humor that you have no choice but to identify with her.  Her drawings are satisfyingly funny, and each comic leaves you with a feeling of “she gets me” or, oh, crap, “what am I even doing with my life?,” which are thoughts I am personally glad somebody else shares (and is open about sharing).  Her bunny-friend is frequently the voice of reason–a voice she often ignores.

The entire style of this book is perfect for a gift or quick read.  And, if you like soft and fuzzy things, definitely buy this book (the title and Sarah’s sweater are both fabricated, and it’s GREAT).
