To me for better or for worse is sort of the story of my life. And it kind of is the story of everybodys life. The Patterson family resembles the modern family. There are some good moments and bad moments. There are surprising moments and boring moments. And like life on the outside world people age and people die. People get married and sometimes people have hardships. Lynn Johnston is a brilliant cartoonist. She captures true family life and captures the relationships of the familys with eachother, their friends and their pets. Over the course of the strip the family pet has passed away and a friend announced something personal, and people have got married. I definetly woould reccomend this.

Loved the entire FB or FW series. Glad I got to find the older ones on Amazon for great prices to read through the ones I never read!

I am in the process of completing my For Better Or For Worse collection. Reading this comic strip is very much like watching a drama about family life, with comedy of course. ;) The characters age and experience things that most families would. And even though the series has it's serious moments throughout, I appreciate that Lynn Johnston created her characters to come out of those tough spots no worse for wear and to focus on the positive and even learn something along the way. I'd tell you about the individual book itself, but the collection of comic books is very much like a book series. You'll be out of the loop if you don't read them all. Five stars for the entire series.
