Goodreads Synopsis:

Are you a special snowflake?

Do you enjoy networking to advance your career?

Is adulthood an exciting new challenge for which you feel fully prepared?

Ugh. Please go away.

This book is for the rest of us. These comics document the wasting of entire beautiful weekends on the internet, the unbearable agony of holding hands on the street with a gorgeous guy, dreaming all day of getting home and back into pajamas, and wondering when, exactly, this adulthood thing begins. In other words, the horrors and awkwardnesses of young modern life.


I love the comics in this book! I always see these comics as memes on the internet. They’re great because they’re so relatable! This was a short book to flip through quickly, and I laughed many times.

Here are some of my favourite comics:

The third book in this series is coming out later in the month, so now I can’t wait to read it. I’m sure it’ll be just as funny!
