Four stars might be a bit high, but I really liked this little book. It's an odd combination of cute and depressing, in which each of those things reinforces the other, and while you can see it as yet another indie diary comic, I think it's better than a lot of the ones I've read. For one thing, it's quite short, and, perhaps because of that lack of length, it never gets overly invested in pathos. Sure, there's a bit of wallowing, but it mostly doesn't become annoying. I could complain that the ...more

I loved the humdrum daily life stuff juxtaposed with bunny and robot characters. Especially since the bunny gets fired for not wearing gloves at work. The theme of the book is friendship, and it ends on a positive note. The artwork was pleasantly immediate and evocative in a simple way. I enjoyed the storyline of the little human guy's desire to get his story published, and his friends pointing out that it's a barely-concealed autobiography.

The cumulative effect of realizing “I have measured out my life with coffee spoons” is addressed in this sad but poignant tale of friendship.

I guess I shouldn't've been expecting much from a book called 'Cry Yourself to Sleep,' but the drawings were so CUTE. I recommend to no one. Skip this book.

Bunnies and Robots and Men, oh my!

The short lil' comic tells the story of 3 dudes trying to make something to make things happen in their mundane lil' lives and in the end stuff happens and they do become happier but it's nothing too crazy. The drawings are cute and a lil' sad. I give the book 5 stars for the drawings but 2 stars(maybe) for the story.

I recommend this for a quick read while on public transportation (unless you have motion sickness). Just a quick, cute read.

Found this while looking for another graphic novel at the library. Figured with a book this tiny, you can't really lose, and the premise seemed both funny and clever.

It was... not great. But like I said, not a big investment. Instead of a graphic novel, it read like one VERY long Sunday-morning or internet comic strip.

Meh. Would be interested in seeing more from the author, but wondered what made THIS a story that was chosen to be published.

This was a really short graphic novel of sorts, but I liked it nonetheless. The ending was cute and so were the characters. Little bits of humor and depressing realities of life mixed together. Just a fun little lunch-break read

It's a really cute and depressing story, and even funny at times, as others have said. I liked it but I guess I expected more from it. The drawings are cool and simple but the story is really short and it leaves you wanting more.

Not so good as I expected it to be. Not so good as my first graphic novel. I'll try another one right now:)

This was a cool, cute read. The characters are drawn in a great way. Jeremy has a great style that incorporates a weird smuttyness into his drawings cuteness.
