Book Overview


For the first time in seven years, Allie Brosh--beloved author and artist of the extraordinary #1 New York Times bestseller Hyperbole and a Half--returns with a new collection of comedic, autobiographical, and illustrated essays.

Solutions and Other Problems includes humorous stories from Allie Brosh's childhood; the adventures of her very bad animals; merciless dissection of her own character flaws; incisive essays on grief, loneliness, and powerlessness; as well as reflections on the absurdity of modern life.

This full-color, beautifully illustrated edition features all-new material with more than 1,600 pieces of art. Solutions and Other Problems marks the return of a beloved American humorist who has the observational skills of a scientist, the creativity of an artist, and the wit of a comedian (Bill Gates).

   A beautiful, sad, weird work of art
This book made me laugh so hard I cried... and then a few chapters later it made me cry for real, and then more pages later it made me laugh again, and then have an existential crisis, she said. I had been waiting for this book to come out for ages, and I bought it for my son as soon as it came out, but I held off reading it until just this week. You are truly inspirational, our dear friend, Allie. It was such a tough ask, Byrne said.
   Read it alot in the parp.
If you know her work, you know this is classic Allie. It's just that we all have such a blast doing it." Some of the stories aren't as laugh-a-minute as her first book, some feels like filler stories that she just picked and illustrated for the heck of it, but similar to the first, there is enough heart string to make it all worth it. I hope she continues to create amazing things, and I hope she keeps on fighting, said Blair.
   Hilarious and Heartbreaking
As a longtime fan of the Hyperbole and a Half blog, I was excited to see that this was finally available. While it isn't as laugh-out-loud as the first book, it is touching and very relatable if you also struggle with mental illness. Don't get me wrong, there are still lots of laughs. It's bittersweet, Raymond said. If you feel something, you should read this if you want to feel something.
   Genuinely enjoyable
It's just that some people may not love it. But if you are a certain type of weirdo, it's pretty refreshing to know there are people out there living life and trying to get by. And even if they are just toddlers, the creators of these cartoons will have a lot to say about how they drew, what they like to do with their time. It's just that Whitney is so good at it." Not surprisingly, I'm not a big fan of books. I don't think I've read a book since her first. 0 6158201 6158201 I don't think I've really laughed reading a book since her first. There's something about the unapologetic silliness and commitment that just gets me.
   This book enhances my happiness.
It's a book that brightens my day. I feel a kinship, he said. I enjoy the cartoons and the storytelling is amazing, Morgenthau said. I think this book is probably best for people with a slightly darker view of life and comedy, Raymond said. I cannot adequately express how much I enjoyed this book, Simon said. Thanks to Allie Brosh., who uploaded this video.
   One of the few good things to come out of 2020
The sequel to Hyperbole and a Half is worth every penny. Whether you're a writer, comedian, or just plain awkward, her stories are relatable, absurd, touching, and laugh out loud. I'm not a huge fan of the first three books, but I like every chapter. Even if it did exist, I would probably even like to see chapter 3. Buy it now, PCMag says. It's that time of year again.
   Classic Allie Brosh
If you are a fan of the show, you will definitely want to pick up this book. She does a great job of telling her stories with her own unique flair and brand of humor, while also shining a little light into the inner darkness she's faced, Morgenthau said.
   Truly incredible
I remember being crushed when I had my pre-order refunded years ago, but I can't overstate how much this book was worth the wait. In "The Whole Nine Yards," Michael Lewis tells the story of a greedy, useless creature that is himself. I hope your dog is happy wherever he is.
   Unbelievably and unexpectedly devastating.
Turner said the pain was so real, "it almost made me want to throw up." Hyperbole and a hallf was by far the funniest book I've ever read, so I have been on the waitlist for this book as soon as it was possible, Mr. Dhaliwal said. It had a couple of funny stories, but mostly was heartrending. But I feel like I paid for a comedy show and they played a video of a dog dying, Sosa said.
This was the saddest, funniest book I've ever read. I hope the author finds happiness somewhere. Even if you're weird, you don't have to be an outcast.
