Hysterical and true, Brosh's relateable and hilarious comics hit the nail on the head for most 20-30 somethings, and her more serious topics (a severe depression that kept her out of the spotlight for nearly 18 months) are handled bravely, with the perfect amount of self-deprecating humor. Plus, you won't believe how much emotion can be conveyed by characters who look they were drawn in MS Paint! For more, check out the blog by the same name as well. ~ Reviewed by Sarah Walcott

Literally laugh-out-loud funny. Allie Brosh perfectly expresses all the neurosis of today's twenty- and thirty-somethings, all with crude drawings and razor-sharp wit. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

Tucker Max is a dude you probably wouldn't like in real life. But he makes for one hell of a storyteller. This is not a book for the prude, but perfect for fans of frat-house humor. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll

The entwined stories of people trying to live their lives despite the trials they're faced with...written in iambic pentameter. Different generations weave together in a tale that captures astonishing details, and large lessons of life. I'm still haunted by Rakoff's images and characters. ~ Reviewed by Marika McCoola
