Do you love doing laundry? Is dating a breeze? Or do you wake up in the morning and want to throw the covers over your head to hibernate? Perhaps shaving is the bane of your existence or maybe you like books more than you like people. If adulthood has ever felt like the biggest chore you’ve been given, then this short and simple book of comics just might make you laugh. A lot.
The author, Sarah Andersen, is showcasing her dry humor and talent in his “comic book” by tackling everything from cleaning, dating, and having to answer those wonderfully nosy questions from well-meaning, but frustrating, family members. Through her black and white illustrations, she’s sharing the emotions of a generation regarding body image, introversion, dating, and more. She’s a millennial with a voice and she’s not afraid to use it.
Adulthood is a Myth is a book that may only take you fifteen minutes to read but will have you laughing throughout the entire time. Though reading about a 20-something’s take on life might not be everyone’s cup of tea, it’s certainly enjoyable for those who are still beginning their own adulthood journey.
