Herding Cats Reviews

  • Aneela ♒the_mystique_reader♒

    My Rating:

    Yes thats exactly what I did while reading Herding Cats by Sarah Andersen.

    This comic is hilarious and very relatable. I could relate to so much in this comic as if Sarah has written exactly about how I feel and what I would say and do in that particular situation.

    I am sharing some of my favorite comic strips. I hope you too have a good laugh like I had.

    I love Sarah Andersen. She depicts an introvert's life perfectly.

    I've read the previous two comics in this series, and I hope she keeps them coming in the years to come.

    In the meantime, I'll settle for her facebook page.

    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 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.

    There were so many times that I was reminded of myself when reading 'Herding Cats.'' The sketch with the brain walking down the trail of Bad Thought? That is totally me...and the feeling of Halloween approaching once August ends...and the sad, soul-crushing music.... and the overthinker... and the quadruple checking of the stove..

    I deeply appreciated Sarah's views on the potentially disastrous effects of exposing yourself on the Internet, especially when your effort is successful and the trolls start galloping from the dark recesses of their despair. I think most of can relate to this, most of us have an experience or two to narrate...

    ...and this is what I consider quality escapism that provides an opportunity for some serious thinking.....

    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

    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 industry also so I can identify myself with the problems the author always handles. The ending hit me on the spot and thanks for reminding me to never give up and that to always make stuff.

    more of the same sarah andersen-style charm and doodles; if you liked the first two books, you’re bound to like this one. i find her endlessly delightful, and the only reason i liked this book SLIGHTLY less than the first two is that the last part is a long essay directed at young artists about how to handle self-doubt, internet trolls, and criticism in general. which is a fantastic thing to have done and i’m sure it is going to help the people for whom it is intended, but i am n

    more of the same sarah andersen-style charm and doodles; if you liked the first two books, you’re bound to like this one. i find her endlessly delightful, and the only reason i liked this book SLIGHTLY less than the first two is that the last part is a long essay directed at young artists about how to handle self-doubt, internet trolls, and criticism in general. which is a fantastic thing to have done and i’m sure it is going to help the people for whom it is intended, but i am not one of those people, so while i applaud her thoughtfulness and sincerity, the little scribbled person inside of me is screaming MOAR PICKTURES PLEEZ! & etc.

    but apart from that quibble, i'm thrilled that all of her usual themes are back on parade, many of which my own inner scribble can relate to

    and ever since ms. andersen discovered her inner cat person, documented in

    , her scribbly tentacles can stretch out and ensnare the cat-people of the internet with cuteness like this

    which is pretty damn savvy, since the internet is 94% cat.

    but yeah, apart from the letter to young artist part, there’s so much here that speaks to my values: cats, coziness, books and halloween, and also to my failings; all the self-flagellation over perceived shortcomings or underachievements, regardless of whether the goals are even realistic ones.

    also life's great secret is revealed -that the cure for all of life’s problems is found in taking a disproportionate amount of pleasure in the littlest things.

    i am all appreciation, approval, and gratitude for sarah andersen.

    I have wanted to read the Sarah Scribbles collection for a while now, but it was the title

    that finally got me to pounce. Jokes are funnier when they involve cats. This is an indisputable fact of the universe. I very much enjoyed the strips where Sarah pokes fun of her irrational devotion to her feline friend but was disappointed they were so few in number. Despite the title and cover picture, most of these comics are not animal related. That doesn't mean I didn't find humor in them

    I have wanted to read the Sarah Scribbles collection for a while now, but it was the title

    that finally got me to pounce. Jokes are funnier when they involve cats. This is an indisputable fact of the universe. I very much enjoyed the strips where Sarah pokes fun of her irrational devotion to her feline friend but was disappointed they were so few in number. Despite the title and cover picture, most of these comics are not animal related. That doesn't mean I didn't find humor in them-- I did-- but it wasn't quite what I was expecting. The last 20% of the book lost me completely, because it switched to a PSA about how the internet is a dumpster fire and tips for how sensitive artists can navigate it. I must not be a sensitive artist, because I had no idea what she was talking about. I can't say I'm now convinced to run out and purchase the other Sarah Scribbles books, but I did enjoy this, and it made the half hour or so it took me to read it a happier place.

    Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for giving me an advanced copy of this book.

    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!

I thought there would be way more cartoons about cats or even dogs. Also, I think I'm going to have to check the

I thought there would be way more cartoons about cats or even dogs. Also, I think I'm going to have to check the previous two books, but I think that there are several cartoons that were used repeatedly.

    These collections of comic strips by Sarah Andersen always magically appear in my life just in time to cheer me out of a foul mood. They're short and entertaining enough (for my attention span at the time) to successfully take my mind of things and feel a proper sense of relief. And I'm beyond grateful, as always.

    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.

    In the previous collection, 

    , I really appreciated the short essays that appeared towards the end of the book, so I was ecstatic to see them make a return with this newest publication. As a result, I leaned more towards the comics that touched upon more deep and substantial topics, such as the 2016 election in America, double standards, feminism, etc. instead of the many #trying to be relatable comics.

    Speaking of which, here are some of those favorites:

    I felt this on a personal level. It always brings to mind my favorite response: "Don't applaud a fish for swimming."

    @ Ilana Glazer from

    .

    This fits perfectly in my mind with the quote by Wayne W. Dyer:

    This, funnily enough, brought to mind

    from The In-Laws.

    I think that's a pretty bright note to end my review on for 

    . As always, I'm excited to see what's in store next for Sarah Andersen.
