Adjusting to life as a world-famous cartoonist isn't easy. Terrifying deadlines, piles of junk-food wrappers under a glowing computer screen, and an ever-growing horde of pets....umm, never mind--it's pretty much the same.With characteristic wit and charm, Sarah Andersen's third collection of comics and illustrated personal essays offers a survival guide for frantic modern life: from the importance of avoiding morning people, to Internet troll defense 101, to the not-so-life-changing futility of tidying up. But when all else fails and the world around you is collapsing, make a hot chocolate, count the days until Halloween, and snuggle up next to your furry beacon of hope....

Herding Cats Reviews
Me considero fan de la autora!!! ❤
La primera parte me encantó, en la segunda decae al haber pocas viñetas y mucho texto, pero deja un mensaje tan lindo que no puedo quejarme. 😍
A lo largo de todo el libro se tocan temas muy interesantes como el machismo, la violencia, la ansiedad y el stress de la vida cotidiana, el fin del mundo, los desastres naturales, el odio que abunda en internet, entre otros. OJO!! Siempre con mucho humor, sino sería tristísimo 😂😂
Específicamente la segunda parte, está dir ...more
This is my first time to come across Sarah Andersen's graphic novel and it never failed to make me laugh. There are some comic panels that I can relate to, but there are also some panels that I can't understand. Nonetheless, it didn't lessen the impact of how entertaining to read this.
The second half, Making Stuff in the Modern Era, is a good addition to this graphic novel; I can fully understand Andersen on her anxiety and the criticisms she encounters every now and then. I'm in the same indust ...more
After being disappointed by the second book in this series, I had hoped this one would be back on track with the enjoyable humor as in the first book. No such luck. Some chuckles here and there and a few outright laughs, but overall not that relatable for me. I most enjoyed the comics featuring cats, and the title was certainly appropriate for a volume dedicated to the antics of our feline friends, but it was a random collection of comics covering Sarah's usual topics.
It's absolutely fascinating how much her life is similar to mine! I can relate to most of the things. At first, I found it a bit creepy but right now I take it as a sign that I am not completely insane!
EDIT: So, I could not really sleep and re-read it, and I suddenly realized that there is no "theme" to this book. Just randomly chosen cartoons. There is nothing really connecting them. I thought there would be way more cartoons about cats or even dogs. Also, I think I'm going to have to check the ...more
This book was provided to me by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review
This is a simple but extremely expressive set of comics. Almost anyone could find a panel to relate to. I love that Sarah's brand of humour is so all-encompassing - a lot of people could relate to it.
This is for pet lovers and people who feel overwhelmed by the polarised politics of today. This is a comic for the socially anxious or the person overwhelmed by news; the book lover, the music lover and the person with unpopul ...more
'''Go make stuff!''
I don't know what it is about Andersen's creations that make me feel so excited. Is it the cute girl with the big eyes, hungry to understand the paranoia around her? The modern, unassuming style? The honest way in which she approaches the problematizations depicted in her sketches? The sensitivity in which she describes a difficult reality? I don't know. Whatever it is, I always find myself reading her work with utter enthusiasm, eagerly waiting for the next installment.
I like how this may be the most relatable web comic ever!
3 issues and this does not disappoint, so funny, light and once again,relatable!
If you are in a bad mood and want something to cheer you up, this is too perfect!
I am going to give this to my brother as he is an artist and he loves cats, this was made for him!
I received an ARC in exchange of an honest review, all opinions are mine
Another solid installment from Sarah Andersen. I laughed out loud several times, as per usual the only con is that I wish it were longer. This book is extra fun to read with friends.
