Hardcover Publication: June ISBN: Jory John is a writer, editor, and journalist. The vagaries of the reading life are a funny thing. Sometimes you pay a buck or less at some Library book sale or garage sale and discover an absolute treasure that stays with you for the rest of your days My favorite example is The Collected Poems of Philip Levine , a just a criminal inversion of cost vs. A var The vagaries of the reading life are a funny thing.
All my friends are Dead is an example of this. The cover shows some dopey cartoon dinosaur along with the title. I thought maybe it was some charming kiddie tale of some resurrected dinosaur coming back to life in the 21st century and being all alienated and mopey and suffused with ennui because all his dino posse from the before times have been dead and morphed into fossil fuel these many years.
It does feature a dinosaur trying to grok the message of death as a comet hurtles towards him. But it also features many other funny and forlorn characters wrestling with that biggest of all philosophical stumbling blocks. There is some beatnik looking oldster who is lamenting his passing days, there is a tree talking about his friends all being end tables and there is a tube sock fiercely missing his only friend. Funny shit.
I stood and read the whole book, not long, but I stayed to the end. The only happy person in the whole book? Boy, I laughed at that one.
So, laughter, real smiles. A cute book and a little poignant too. Is there anything more noble, more foolishly brave and human, than laughing in the face of death?

Very quick, fun, and dark book! Highly recommend! I want to download the physical book to and give it as a gift! Jan 15, jess marked it as to-read. Apr 10, Sr3yas rated it really liked it Shelves: An amusing Picture book where various odd characters talk about their friends in witty one-liners. It's so simple! I think I can make my own versions about this, minus the illustrations of course.
All my friends are Imaginary. Should we be concerned about Sreyas? No, Wait. Scratch that.
I am not making my own version. Did he sell his friends?
Or did he eat them?! What's happening here?!
Jan 21, Forrest rated it it was amazing. My daughter asked for this for her 21st birthday. Of course, I peeked. This is, in essence, a book for existential children.
If Sartre had had children did he? I don't know, but I suspect not , he would have read this to them at bedtime every night. Because any night could be your last. I li My daughter asked for this for her 21st birthday. I liked the glue entry the best. Yes, there's really a glue entry. View 1 comment. I didn't really like this I promise, I do have a sense of humour I just didn't find it funny and I didn't really get the big hype.
It wasn't for me so I wouldn't recommend it. View all 6 comments. May 22, Carlos De Eguiluz rated it really liked it. Oh, the sweet, sweet irony Okay no, no estoy tan jodido. Me temo que me estoy volviendo adicto a los libros de adultos disfrazados de historias infantiles.

Some times I think I'd like to live forever But just look at this sad dinosaur And no one even calls him a "Brontosaurus" anymore.
And what about this old guy?
