"Big Mushy Happy Lump" by Sarah Anderson [Book review]


Sarah Andersen's hugely popular, world-famous Sarah's Scribbles comics are for those of us who boast bookstore-ready bodies and Netflix-ready hair, who are always down for all-night reading-in-bed parties and extremely exclusive after-hour one-person music festivals.

In addition to the most recent Sarah's Scribbles fan favorites and dozens of all-new comics, this volume contains illustrated personal essays on Sarah's real-life experiences with anxiety, career, relationships and other adulthood challenges that will remind readers of Allie Brosh's Hyperbole and a Half and Jenny Lawson's Let's Pretend This Never Happened. The same uniquely frank, real, yet humorous and uplifting tone that makes Sarah's Scribbles so relatable blooms beautifully in this new longer form.

My opinion

This book is collection of Little comics by Sarah Andersen, which one can relate to. It was like she was writing down your own experience and also it was great reading it because you realise, that you're not the only one in this world who feels like this.
Besides the feeling of relating to the Little comics, I also had a feeling of joy while reading them. There were many parts where I had to take a picture of the page and send it to someone because I wanted to share those funny comics with others, so I could laugh with them.
I really went through the book very fast. I think it would take me about two hours if I read the whole book at once but I didn't to it because I wanted to have more of the book. Now, after having finished it, I really like going through it and just read a few comics, that I really liked.
Also, I recommend the book if you like to laugh and if you also do understand sarcasm.


I rate this book with 5 out of 5 stars, and I really want to read the other "Sarah's Scribbles" collections.
Yours szebra
