THIS IS FOR YOU, ERICA!!

THIS IS A REVIEW OF A BOOK OF ANIMALS TALKING IN ALL CAPS!!

AND NOW FOR YOU, JACOB, WHO COMPLAINS ABOUT HAVING TO SEE ANIMALS ON HIS FEED AS THOUGH ANIMALS ON THE FEED ARE NOT THE MOST DELIGHTFUL THING EVER! NOW THEY ARE MOOSHED DOWN!!

BUT THIS IS A REVIEW OF ANIMALS TALKING IN ALL CAPS, NOT A NAME-DROPPING PARTY!

SOMETIMES I DON'T KNOW HOW NECESSARY IT IS THAT THEY ARE TALKING IN ALL CAPS AND MAYBE SOMETIMES A LITTLE BREVITY MIGHT HAVE WORKED BETTER AND MADE THE JOKE PUNCHI

I love the concept but many of the situations were quite vulgar.

I read this on my Kindle, and color photos probably would've been better than the grayscale version on my Kindle. A few of the entries made me laugh out loud, but I think this is probably better as website/blog than as a book. But I borrowed the ebook from my library, so I can't complain. (This isn't a book I would recommend anyone pay for, however.)

I flipped through this quickly in the library.

Meh.

Some of the pictures were great, but a lot of the captions struck on the same repetitive jokes. A lot of them seemed to have really gratuitous swearing (which I don't always mind, but it felt forced). I also thought he relied way to much on sex and bathroom humor instead of wit.

An ARC was provided by the publisher in return for an honest review.

I don't really know what to say about this except that it wasn't for me. I was expecting it to be witty but I didn't find it even remotely funny. You know why it was a successful blog? Because that's where it belongs. On a blog or Facebook page. The problem is that most websites really aren't book "worthy". It seems to be a trend in recent years with bloggers like The oatmeal and 27/b releasing material in book form (that's free

Way longer than it needed to be. I got bored around 38%.

Oh, some of them are laugh out loud funny. And if you're not familiar with the Tumblr, you'll crack up because it's all new to you. This is a book you can just browse, and honestly won't take you much longer than a half hour to read.

When I can't read a book in public place, because I sound like a laughing loon...I know it's good.

Well, if I'm to read 52 books in one year, I deserve to read a couple short ones. I picked this book up at a book sale for 50 cents and definitely feel as though I got my money's worth. I didn't initially know it was based off a blog so I didn't know what to expect and went into it open minded. I have to say that for the most part I enjoyed it; it got a little repetitive by the end, but it definitely makes a good coffee table book. I laughed out loud a few times so really, what more can you ask ...more

This is a Tumblr turned book in a trend that will probably go futher the same way as blogs turned books happened. In this case, the books tries to cash in the Meme wave too, as it selects the gimmick of making animals talk, aka internet magic.

The book is very succesful in pulling its gimmick and can certainly catch everyones eyes in a bookshelf at a bookstore, and only due to the fact of having animal pictures talking can be a sure shot as a gift.

A book of photos of animals with captions of what the animals are saying. Sometimes funny, sometimes clever, sometimes meh. I occasionally had some difficulty figuring out which animal was speaking, but most of the time it wasn't bad. A lot of the humor was somewhat dark, but aside from a little vulgar language, it wasn't offensive. Some books-from-blogs I pick up are so hilarious I'll read them again and again (like, say, the Cake Wrecks books). This one was fun the first time around, but not w ...more

Animals that are witty and smarter than your average friends talk in all caps and discuss nail polish, relationships, beauty standards, work retreat interactions, and how to impress the ladies in their own world. Sharp and current, the book is beautiful and the captions inspired. This is today's dry humor at it's best. Buy the book. Visit the tumbler. Laugh. Tell your friends. Repeat.

It's exactly what it sounds like. And it's uproarious. As a casual reader of the Animals Talking in All Caps blog, I appreciated seeing these anthropomorphized animals with concerns raging from Justin Beiber to the state of the global economy on the printed page.

This was a picture book not a regular book. Not what I was expecting. It was good for browsing.

This is hilarious. My favorite by far is on page 16 -- the cat staring at the "carnage" on a plate. I didn't even finish the first sentence before I was crying from laughing so hard.

I found this book to be hilarious. Who can resist talking animals.? My favorites were of the squirrels and the dog and his stick. I laughed often.

This was fun. Most of the photos are great as they are, and Valmassoi has a clever send of humor.

This book is an extension of the humor originally found on author Justin Valmassoi's tumblr page (also called Animals Talking In All Caps). The subtitle on the cover is "It's Just What It Sounds Like" and that's the truth! It's just straight up humorous captions / conversations put to pictures of animals! The conversations touch upon not only pop culture references and relationship craziness but also some more crude or risque material.. but in such a dang cute way!

The book also features a pret

I strongly believe that regardless of all the cute animal photos, the content of this book is very adult. Not recommended for children or teens. That said, I prefer whit to profanity in humor and this book had more than a fair share of profanity and some rather questionable social observations/commentary. Probably also not for anyone easily offended. I understand that not every book is for everyone, and I simply did not enjoy this book as much as I was hoping to. Thank you.

I stumbled across Justin Valmassoi's slightly emo tumblr a few years ago (if I remember correctly, the whole point of it initially was to get a girl, and maybe he did get the girl? I can't remember). I read the whole thing in an afternoon, and promptly forgot about its existence until the book version popped up on my Overdrive. Reading the book version was basically the same experience: some of the caption/picture combinations made me laugh, some were kind of dumb, all of it will have evaporated ...more

Animals Talking in All Caps is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a bunch of animal memes. The memes have cute or funny pictures of animals with captions underneath them. From the introduction, I knew that Animals Talking in All Caps was going to be a hit. During the introduction, Justin Valmassoi had me laughing several times. I was impressed considering I hadn’t even gotten to the animals yet. Not all of the animal pictures made me laugh. In fact, a few of the jokes definitely went over my head ...more
