I’ve been diligently working my way through Terry Fallis’s The Best Laid Plans, but it’s taking me some time. However, I did finish a book in the interim. It was a cheery little number I picked up at Urban Behaviour and skimmed through with my friends Karley and Alton, entitled All My Friends Are Dead, by Avery Monsen and Jory John.
Okay so basically it was a picture book that I would guess is attempting to be slightly satirical of a children’s story, that bounced back and forth between a bunch of animals or humans whose friends were all dead or dying, and worked with a lot of puns and clever humour. Karley, Alton and I all had a really good laugh at it. It’s one of those kitschy reads that’s really tempting to get, just to have.
I didn’t actually buy it, though, because I’m a broke university student and I read the whole thing in the store so there was no point. But I finished it, so it counts! And I would, in fact, recommend it for a quick read to cheer you up.
