2016 GOODREADS CHOICE AWARD WINNER FOR GRAPHIC NOVELS AND COMICS
These casually drawn, perfectly on-point comics by the hugely popular young Brooklyn-based artist Sarah Andersen are for the rest of us. They document the wasting of entire beautiful weekends on the internet, the unbearable agony of holding hands on the street with a gorgeous guy, and dreaming all day of getting home and back into pajamas. In other words, the horrors and awkwardnesses of young modern life. Oh and they are totally not autobiographical. At all.
Adulthood Is a Myth presents many fan favorites plus dozens of all-new comics exclusive to this book. Like the work of fellow Millennial authors Allie Brosh, Grace Helbig, and Gemma Correll, Sarah's frankness on personal issues like body image, self-consciousness, introversion, relationships, and the frequency of bra-washing makes her comics highly relatable and deeply hilarious.

As I flipped the pages, I often wondered how these comics can be accurate and relatable on so many levels. Ugly selfies? Struggling oh socializing?? Forgetting name right after they introduced themselves??? Sarah Andersen is me on the other side of the globe.
I love this! Really glad that Sarah decided to publish her drawing collection in this book. It's a light reading but will be useful when you're just in the mood to have a couple of good laughs at yourself. Or having a break from a hard day. But mostly just to laugh at yourself
I already know Sarah Andersen through her webtoon (Sarah's Scribbles). I finished this book in one setting and this book can be a great short escape when we feeling down or a bit stressed out.
I must point out that this book cover was better than I expected. The quality was so great and I'm enjoy touching this book so much (that was a velvet texture on the front cover) :)
it is packed with short cartoons describing an almost accurate conditions of adult life, very fun to read!
