Book Overview

If you're a dinosaur, all of your friends are dead. If you're a pirate, all of your friends have scurvy. If you're a tree, all of your friends are end tables. Each page of this laugh-out-loud illustrated humor book showcases the downside of being everything from a clown to a cassette tape to a zombie. Cute and dark all at once, this hilarious children's book for adults teaches valuable lessons about life while exploring each cartoon character's unique grievance and wide-eyed predicament. From the sock whose only friends have gone missing to the houseplant whose friends are being slowly killed by irresponsible plant owners (like you), All My Friends Are Dead presents a delightful primer for laughing at the inevitable.

   All my friends love dark humor.
It's great to be back in the classroom, Kerry said. Show this book to someone and see if they have the sagacity and intelligence to appreciate the stoic humor that this book presents, Raymond said. If they frown and pooh-pooh this book, avoid those people because they're probably not going to be very good company, Mr. Rule told the judge. Older people, people who have come to grips with a bad illness, and people who work closely with the sick tend to appreciate this, Bruno said. The boys giggle at the girls, but don't seem to get the point. Of course, the caveat being that you should not give too much away to someone who is actually grieving the death of a loved one, especially if recent. But, technically, you would only do that if you were deficient in empathy or had a very low emotional quotient.
   It made me smile and snicker.
I've never read a book by that name. I asked the librarian at my daughter's elementary school to read it and comment. I was surprised by her reaction, said Blair. She enjoyed the humor and wanted to get a copy, Hollingworth said. She said the kids will enjoy it. I gave her my copy and she ordered another. I enjoy sharing laughs, he said.
   Amazingly interesting and unique book.
My friend found a picture of the cover of this book online and thought it was very funny, so I searched for it on Amazon and bought her a copy. It was a huge hit, and I bought a copy for myself. This book is the culmination of all the research that went into creating the cover. It is designed like a children's book, with colorful pictures and only a few words on each page, but it seems geared toward adults. I also bought one for the professor of my English class, and he absolutely loved it. The book is highly recommended to anyone with a sense of humor. It's great to be back home, said Dr. George Vazzi, director of the Royal Holloway clinic in London.
   Makes a great gift to tease someone on a big birthday
It's great to be back home, Dad says. This is a great present for someone special. Everyone has a kick at reading it.
   A great book for the right person
I've read it, but I'm not a big fan. It was then I decided I'd give one to someone when I got a chance. The chance came when a friend was turning 30 and she was whining about that. I bought the book, but I'm not sure if I can read it. The whole thing is a parody, Mr. Rule told the judge. It's just that person is no longer my friend. She told the interviewer she was worried about turning 30 when in reality she was a whiny 7th grader. It's just that I wish I had never bought it. I still hope the opportunity will arise and I can purchase again for a real friend.
   Loved this!
Some people I showed it to thought it was morbid and sad but I think they just need to lighten up, Melissa said. It cracked me up, Tunick said. We Fear Death, hide from it, don't talk about it and accordingly make it into a huge taboo, which only serves to freak us out more. I think it's crazy, said Blair. I enjoyed this book more than the follow-up, All My Friends are Still Dead.
   Gloriously Dark
This book edges right up to the boundary of bad taste, then gleefully forges ahead. Not so much for younger kids as for the older set, especially if they enjoy their pitch black humor. Every time you think the authors couldn't possibly say what you think they're going to say, they go a step further. I got this as a present for my wife, and we laughed until we hurt, he said. One is for knifeball and the other is for violin."
   Don't get it!
Not what I was expecting from the English star, Louis CK, said one critic. Second, I'm not sure what they were trying for - it would be silly, said Dr. Steve Weinshall, director of pediatric neurosurgery at the Cleveland Clinic.
   Horribly unimaginative. Waste of time and money.
That was a joke, for a buddy and his wife's baby shower. 0 2622010 2622070 This is for a friend and his wife's baby shower. The book took a potentially hilarious idea and completely destroyed it with a lack of creative writing. What a waste of time, energy and money! The Harrisons are embarrassed and humiliated. Note to self: This is not giving away any credit cards. The book is in terrible shape, and we don't have the resources to ship it. None of the characters' statements are particularly clever, and nothing rhymes. The way this book is presented, I subconsciously tried to find a rhythm on every page. It was, however, extremely dull and destroyed any humor that might have existed in its pages. Not a fan of Malvo, felt like I was scammed.
The book is a charming parable in the "Harry Potter" series. Very quick read, Mr. Rule told us. I really want to read the next book. Yes, there is a sequel.
