What I love: I love how timeless and hilarious these jokes are! I didn't understand them when I was younger, and I remember pulling out the dictionary when I didn't know certain words, so I learned a bit for my young age. If you have never heard of these comics, you NEED to get this book! Yes, it's a comic, but to me, it's funnier than the Peanuts. I know lots of people disagree with me, but there's something sentimental and original about these comics. It couldn't hurt to try! Also, this book is cheaper here than in Barnes and Noble, so I totally recommend getting it here. Bill Watterson was a genius at his craft; you won't regret buying this book, especially if it's your first Calvin and Hobbes book.
What I don't love: There is nothing that I don't love!
Conclusion: If you have a young child starting to read, this is awesome. If you used to read these comics, get them again! It'll be like walking down memory lane; just do it, how could you regret rereading jokes that you probably have forgotten? The jokes are timeless, the vocabulary makes it interesting, and the jokes are hilarious. For new and old readers alike, if you don't own this book, you need to!
This is a great book and should be in the collection of any Calvin and Hobbes fan.
That said, I feel this more of a retrospective work. There are no new insights, no new humor, it is a rehash of classic Watterson. Just because it is not new material doesn't mean it's not wonderful (I gave it 5 stars) it just means read it in snippets (it retains it's freshness that way). Watterson knew this and that's why he quite at the top of his game.
So buy the book and enjoy. It is a great deal of tried and true fun and philosophy.
Before this, the only way to see this book's Sundays in color was in "The Complete Calvin and Hobbes".
Also, well-done in all respects. A very pleasant Kindle read. To view the panels in close-up, just double-click, then double-click again to view them in normal size again.
