Big Mushy Happy Lump (Sarah’s Scribbles #2)

Rate: 3

Big Mushy Happy Lump wasn’t as funny as Andersen’s first book Adulthood Is a Myth. Most of the comics in the beginning seemed forced, as if Andersen created this second collection because the first was a hit and not because she was trying to get a point across. The comics get better in the end though when Andersen begins to tell longer stories using the comics instead of one-off jokes. The following are my three favorite comics from Big Mushy Happy Lump:

Adulthood is a Myth

I loved these comics. I laughed from the first one to the last one. They were so relatable. Yes, all my clothes have a use limit except my bras. And yes, I hate everyone at school. And yes, my conditioner always runs out faster than my shampoo. And these statements only hint at the very relatable comics in this book.

The only con to this book is that not everyone can relate to it, which is OK. I’m the introverted, awkward, trying to adult but failing, young adult woman this book is targeting so everything feels like finally meeting a kindred spirit to me. But this book of comics won’t appeal to men and it won’t appeal to women who have their shit together or aren’t as awkward or are extroverted and love people. ¬†And that’s OK. Andersen couldn’t possibly include everyone’s adult experiences in one book. But it was still a hilarious, quick read for me.
