Review: All My Friends are Dead

Reactions: 
All My Friends are DeadAll My Friends are Dead by Avery Monsen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I'm not sure why, but my reading list took an unexpectedly morbid turn this month. Previously, I reviewed The Rules of Inheritance, a lovely, but serious look at the grieving process, and now, I'm reviewing another book that deals with what happens when we shake off this mortal coil.

You know what really stinks about being a dinosaur? All your friends are dead. It basically goes on like that with different characters--pirates, a tree whose friend is now part of someone's living room set, etc. Repetitive? Perhaps. Entertaining? Oh yes.

I think I may need to take this little book to work with me so I can glance at it for those quick giggles when I'm feeling down. All My Friends are Dead has been hyped a lot, but it's worth the hype and the 10 minutes it takes to read. Now I may have to try Go the Fuck to Sleep.
