Sometimes I start a review by saying “Clearly I didn’t understand this.” I generally do it when something is popular and I didn’t enjoy it at all.

Clearly I didn’t understand this.

The lead character, Kim, is meant to be a six year old girl. She clearly isn’t because in some panels she wakes up in her double bed next to her boyfriend, so let’s just accept that her apparent age is an artistic conceit and that she’s a young woman of indeterminate age. Her defining characteristic is her rage. Now, I

With an art style not unlike the MSPaint version of the classic Charlie Brown comics. The similarities continue to grow as you realize the two main characters are the spitting image of Charlie Brown and Lucy - twenty years later.

Much as the title suggests, this collection of comicstrips centers on how frustrating the search for love can be. Poking fun at the cliches and sentemental conventions of love with an angry blunt poker. If you're frustrated with the dating game and need a quick laugh thi

I enjoyed Angry Little Girls In Love because I am one. :P

Not many of the ideas expressed are very original, but they are done so with simplicity and cute drawings so it balances out.

I finished it within a few minutes. It would make a cute gift or coffee table book. It came with a free postcard, which I doubt I'll ever use simply because I don't want to remove it from the rest of the cartoons.

To my relief, this has none of the racial stereotypes found in Fairy Tales for Angry Little Girls. This is just pure, unadulterated snark. The contrast between the cutesy little-girl artwork and the bitter, world-weary view of love and relationships makes me giggle.

These are fresh cartoon stories about girls who are sarcastic, angry, disenchanted, crazy, and sardonic. Anyone who has had a relationship can perfectly relate to it. A perfect valentine gift for close friends and loved ones.

Depressing truisms about the pitfalls of heterocentric love affairs, but with very cute drawings & a female bent. It was enjoyable, but in a guilty pleasure kind of way. The ideas within are not terribly original either: just standard battle of the sexes speak.

there's some heavy duty controversial themes but I chose to turn a blind eye and read it purely for entertainment purposes so my rating is based on the hilarity if you switch your brain off/ not think too much while reading this.

This book annoyed me. I was surprised at the gender of the person who wrote it because it was written like a man who had been scorned.
The guy is sweet but clueless and the chick is abusive.

A very excellent sarcastic view of love. I gave it as a present to my aunt and her girls.
