Goodreads Synopsis: Are you a special snowflake? Do you love networking to advance your career? Have you never wasted a fresh new day surfing the internet? Ugh. This book is not for you. Please go away.
Sarah’s Scribbles — casually drawn, perfectly on-point comics by young Brooklyn-based artist Sarah Andersen — confront head-on the horrors, anxiety, and awkwardness of modern adult life. From the agony of holding hands with a gorgeous guy to the yawning pit of hell that is the wifi gone down to the eye-watering pain of eating too-hot pizza because one cannot stand to wait for it to cool down, Sarah fearlessly documents it all.
Like the work of fellow Millennial authors Allie Brosh, Grace Helbig, and Gemma Correll, Sarah’s total frankness on extremely personal issues such as body image, self-consciousness, introversion, relationships, and bra-washing makes her comics highly relatable and consistently hilarious.
I was provided this book on NetGalley for a honest review.
I’ve seen Sara Andersen’s comics all over Instagram and Tumblr, and I find them to be super relatable. I had such a fun time when I was reading Adulthood is a Myth. It is my favorite book for April so far. I laughed and I was mostly tearing up. I have been recommending this graphic novel to relatives and friends. Lastly, it will make such a great gift!
Final Rating: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
