These casually drawn, perfectly on-point comics by the hugely popular young Brooklyn-based artist Sarah Andersen are for the rest of us. They document the wasting of entire beautiful weekends on the internet, the unbearable agony of holding hands on the street with a gorgeous guy, and dreaming all day of getting home and back into pajamas. In other words, the horrors and awkwardness of young modern life. Oh and they are totally not autobiographical. At all. Adulthood Is a Myth presents many fan favorites plus dozens of all-new comics exclusive to this book. Like the work of fellow Millennial authors Allie Brosh, Grace Helbig, and Gemma Correll, Sarah's frankness on personal issues like body image, self-consciousness, introversion, relationships, and the frequency of bra-washing makes her comics highly relatable and deeply hilarious.

Started as a web comic, is a compilation of individual scenes and stories about being a young adult in the modern era, so funny you will laugh-cry. Good for anyone who has ever said "adulting is hard".

Silly comics about the silly things that happen when you're a grown-up who is expected to do grown-up things when all you really want is to stay in your pajamas all day.

Found this collection really lackluster, a lot of the humor relies on simply putting things on the page that some people might find relatable. There aren't many punch lines or unique comedic insights to help hold the book up. There are so many four panel comic collections out there that are hilarious unfortunately this one falls really flat. Its not the worst read just not something I would ever reccomend

Laugh-out-loud hilarious, has a lot of comics that introverts will be able to relate to.

Sarah's introvert humor resonated the most with me. A philosophical tribute to adulthood and the child we may or may have not left behind. Loved her bunny companion and her black cat. Extra marks for our local publisher. Very entertaining!

As a fellow introvert, I see a number of my own quirks and foibles mirrored in Sarah Andersen's comics, which is pleasing and validating in some way. This was quick, leisurely, charming entertainment, perfect for a demanding time of year.

This comic had me actually laughing out loud. These strips are short but very witty and if you are a millennial, might find them particularly relatable.

So relatable!

For all those fans of Sarah's Scribbles, this cute collection talks about the challenges Sarah faces in adult life.
She discusses staying up too late and having trouble getting up the next morning. My favourite was not wanting to get up on cold winter mornings and being excited to come home and get into comfy pjs.
