Back in 2013 Allie Brosh published a book compiling some of the posts on her very funny blog, capturing what it was like to be one of those Weird Kids and what the Weird Kid did as an alleged adult. There was supposed to be a sequel within a couple of years. Instead the blog went mostly dark, and the sequel didn't appear until 2020. There was a reason for this, and that reason makes the middle section of the book much sadder and darker than the first one. Brosh was very ill with endometriosis and nearly died, the publicity tour for the first book was while she was recovering from surgery, and it took her so long to recover from all the strain that she didn't make it home for Christmas. Then her sister died on New Year's Eve. Although it isn't spelt out in the book, it's clear from the phrasing of one single-sentence paragraph that it was suicide. Most of the book is once again laugh out loud, but there were two pages in this section which made me weep out loud.

And yes, it is laugh out loud in most parts, from the silly stories like the strange case of the horse poop to the ruthless self-examination laying bare the weirdness that is daydreaming, and the things you would be very ashamed of should other people be able to see inside your head. There's a literal shaggy dog story, because the Simple Dog and the Helper Dog were followed in Brosh's life by the Pile Dog, who was a brown pile when lying down and bore a remarkable resemblance to an ambulatory shag pile rug when she stood up. Once again hyperbole is used to bring out the point of the underlying reality. It's mixed in with sadness, because that's what life's like; a mix of both. And it ends with a poignant story that demonstrates this. Brosh's life fell apart at some point after the first book came out, with her own divorce and the divorce of her parents, and for a period she lived alone with no companionship other than herself. As an act of self-preservation she learned how to be friends with herself, and this last section crystallises a theme that has run through both books - have compassion for yourself. The final page is full of hope and love for herself and for all the other people out there who feel like pointless little weirdos all alone. ( )

I don't know how to feel about this book.

Allie Brosh's first book I cried while laughing. And at the end I cried because I was sad.

In some way this feels a lot more removed but also way more forgiving.

I wouldn't recommend this to everyone who read her funny stories and thinks this is the same. This is a lot more personal but also weirder. I can sort of follow it but I think only because my brain comes up with their own connection to the story. Every story felt personal because I could relate to it in some way.

If you cannot relate I don't think you would enjoy this. It's too disjointed for that.

My reading experience varied at times. But I think I have to reread this to truly get my thoughts in order.

Interesting. That's the only thing I can come up with. And for me that's a positive response because I just spend half an hour trying to come up books from my collection I would take with me in case if an zombie apocalypse. Interesting can hold my interest for far longer than any other positive emotion.

Somehow I think Brosh would get that

Allie Brosh is a genius of the graphic memoir. Unlike Hyperbole and a Half, it's not all funny. But funny or not, all the stories are depicted with an objective sympathy that makes even the weirdest behavior seem normal. Brosh doesn't judge her younger self and that helps us to be kind to our younger selves. ( )

I think it's doing this book a disservice to put it in the humour category, because a lot of this isn't funny and is actually quite deeply depressing. It's graphic memoir and it's very good at being that, but on the whole it isn't humour at all. I still enjoyed it, although I probably would have chosen a different time to read it had I known what the content would mostly be.

Equals and surpasses the comic genius of Hyperbole and a Half, with some very thoughtful essays. Also, the publisher really needs to publish The Poop Mystery as a stand-alone picture book because every child between age 4 and 10 likes it so very much. ( )
