Hyperbole and a Half showed up in my in-box, I decided I was up for a funny book. I waited my turn and the book came in today. I read it in an afternoon (since it is in comic book form, it was a quick and easy read).
While not as funny as I had hoped, it was still a good chuckle here and there. Plus, I will have to say that the author's description of the confusing nature of depression was spot on. She really nailed what it feels like to go through a major depressive phase. Her explanation of the responses of others was also true to life. I feel bad for her because she had to go through a chronic depression in order to come up with those insights.
The funniest bits were probably about her two dogs. I could also relate to all the people telling her how easy it is to train a dog. As if!
I don't think I'm destined to become one of her blog readers, but did appreciate the light-hearted good laughs she provided.
