Although thick (nearly 400 pages), Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened is a surprisingly fast and exceptionally fun read. But don't let the (at a glance) simplified, cutsy illustrations fool you. The humor in this one is nothing if not sarcastic, dysfunctional, and completely twisted. But, at the same time, it's relatable to everyday situations: From wanting nothing more than some of that forbidden cake your mom baked for someone other than you to a pets-eye-view of moving, Hyperbole and a Half will make you see the humor in life's curveballs and maybe even cause you look at your life in a different way.
The verdict: Awesome!
