About the Author
Sarah Andersen is a cartoonist and illustrator in her twenty-somethings. She graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2014 and currently lives in Brooklyn. Her semi-autobiographical comic strip, “Sarah’s Scribbles,” finds the humor in living as an adulting introvert with beloved pets and the continual struggles with waking up in the morning, being productive, and dealing with social situations.

I've enjoyed the webcomic enough I thought I would send the author a little support so she can continue to create more of these comics I've enjoyed so much therefore Book Was Purchased. (Make more Sarah Andersen, please.)
"Adulthood is a Myth" contained some old and NEW favorites. For example:
"So what are your hobbies?"
"Well I go on Wikipedia, and I'll read an interesting page and follow the links to OTHER cool pages ... then I'll read those. I could do it all day!" (other speaker response blank) Sara blinks before responding with a touch of confusion. "Is that not a valid hobby?"
If you would consider Wikipedia-rabbit-hole-exploration a valid hobby, then this book is for you!
A lot of the "scribbles" that involve introversion and pretty much just avoiding people in general definitely relate to me, and the female jokes are still funny to me, especially given that I grew up with 3 women and no men. I can sympathize and laugh at nearly anything in this book.
Sara Andersen's comic strips look at and lampoons the absurdities of everyday. You will see yourself, or someone you love, in these four panel anecdotes. The only complaint that you'll have is that the book ends too soon (but don't worry, there are more!).
No. Wait... Nope, not my impending demise. just a quarter that fell on the floor. AWW look the book cover is fuzzy.

I love the velvet touch on the front cover first of all, the touch of colour is a great contrast.
I originally saw some of the comics around Facebook so am aware of the author and had this recommened for me. The book itselfs tells the truth about adulthood, about how most of us don't have it together. True introverts will relate to this entirely, I know I do!
Great laughs with this book and not too expensive either. A great read and am definitely considering buying other works from Sarah based on this book alone. The art style is adorable and I really enjoyed this product.
Serving suggestion: big comfy jumper, large glass of wine, fuzzy socks, and a sofa :)
Speedy delivery and a beautifully designed book!
(Great gift for the friend that is always posting these sorts of comic strips!)
