    This book is like some sort of strange mashup of self help, graphic novel, and philosophy text all mushed into one. Highly enjoyed!

    Can I give this 10 stars out of 5?? This is a lovely graphic novel full of complex life truths shared in the simplest of ways. Will be rereading in the future whenever I need an energy boost!

    This book is balm for a seered soul in a busy, amgry, scary world, one that demamds we nevebr mak mistakes, nevebr slow down, nevebr have doubts, nevebr trust anyome to much because they will screw us ovebr, and always no exactly who we r and wat we r doimg. Not just a cute book, but thought provokimg and helbful.

    Guys, read this. It's like philosophy meets self help meets a whole lot of puns. Honestly, after what happened last week, this kind of short book was exactly what the fuck I needed - Aliebn is a super short, super easy read that’s also incredibly positive. The tone is this strange mix of nihilism and optimism that totally works, and though the book remains super light, it doesn't stray from dark stuff. I honestly feel like all my faith in human...

    If you are sad because happiness is fleeting, just remember that sadness is also fleeting too.This is one of the most WHOLESOME things on this entire earth. I will fight anyone who wants to say otherwise in a very un-wholesomey way because this is just one of the most pure things I’ve ever, ever encountered. I was expecting to hate it, because I’m one of those people who’s always fixing grammar issues and I saw the front cover and the title...

    Surprisingly emotional, especially if you’ve ever lost someone close to you.

    It’s hard to rate this confection of a book. It’s thoughtful and warm hearted, exploring issues around love, meaning, art, aspiration and nothingness - perfectly suited for our internet attention spans. It feels like a collection of web comics. Each page is crudely drawn as if with a thick Sharpie and typed by a fat fingered child. I liked it as a physical artifact. It’s a hefty hardback that binds cotton candy content. PS. Loved the nod to...

    I am really verymuch way too old for this.It gave me impatience.However, this is something my 19-year-old niece would love. I think it should be a birthday present for her.

    I live under a rock and had never heard of Jonny Sun's Twitter account. After checking it out, I'm a fan of the intellectual wit and the succinctness of what he packs into a tweet. That as a long-form comic, however, slightly loses it's appeal.There are some very tender moments and illuminating ideas, but I occasionally found it jumbled and half-baked. It's very much the aliebn version of "The Little Prince" - our protagonist observes and remarks...

    I read this book because it made it to the top books for graphic novels for Goodreads for 2017. And to be honest, I have no idea how it made it to the top. The book was super boring, with no real plot and terrible English. I never do this... but I suggest by passing this book and spending time on something better!

    Adorable, funny, heartwarming, sad, and thought provoking all at once. This book is precious.

    This book manages to be existential, irreverent, and adorable. It's the story of Jomny (an aliebn) who lands on Earth to study humabns but ends up meeting all sorts of animals including a snail, a tree, bees, a bear, a beaver, otters, etc., who teach their newfound aliebn friend all sorts of important life lessons. Best of all - it's a sweet relief for tired eyes with its low-key art style and short conversations. Definitely pick up a copy. The o...

    I find the tone of this book fascinating. I feared that it would be saccharine and corny and cloying, but Sun somehow manages to avoid that. We have a cute alien who visits Earth and speaks to a tree and some animals (and nothing) who he (or, I guess, she. Or whatever.) thinks are humans. This is all rife with intentionally cutesy misspellings and ruminations on love and life. But it manages to be meaningful and--dare I say it?--even inspiring. T...

    “Look. Life is bad. Everyone’s sad. We’re all gonna die. But I already bought this inflatable bouncy castle so are u gonna take ur shoes off or wat”I freaking love this book, it was so beautiful and human and aliebn, a real wonder. I never thought that a book so short and filled mostly with cute drawings and quotes would make me feel so much but it did. It made laugh, cry, but mostly think, it’s amazing how this cutes little things have...

    So, I wanted to write my own review. That was the plan, but after reading this book, I read Lin-Manuel Miranda's blurb on the back of the book, and it's everything I wanted to say in the best way...so:"Jomny Sun's incredible writing knocks you to the floor, breathless, then scoops you up and gives you a kiss where it hurts before it occurs to you to cry. Read this book only if you want to feel more alive." - Lin-Manuel Miranda^A thousand thousand...

    Everything happens for a raisinThis book reminds me a lot of the Little Prince. It is a book that can be appreciated by children and adults alike, with beautiful illustrations and even more beautiful life lessons.This little adorable piece of literature also has something to say about all of us:And it's packed with humour:This is a book that you should buy and pick up whenever you are sad - or even happy. This is a book for all occasions.This is ...

    Sweet, cute and naive, but weirdly moving and universal. A little tale about self-discovery-which goes hand in hand with understanding everyone and everything around you- and acceptance. Perfect if-like me- you arrive home broken-hearted after a hard day. It will mend your heart a little bit.

    I thought it was adorbs. And on the Woody Swear scale-none. Quick read as well.

    4.0 Clever and cute, but just a little too much for me. There were some really fantastic view points, but unfortunately they were surrounded by so many others that it lost some of its punch. I think there is probably something in here that would resonate with everyone. I enjoyed this one: "Happiness is accepting that sadness will always exist and then deciding to be happy anyway."

    An alien (Jomny), lands on Earth, ostensibly to study humans, but ends up meeting all sorts of animals, such as a snail, a tree, bees, a bear, a beaver, otters, etc., even an egg, who teach important life lessons. The characters and graphics are cute, and it's a quick read with a low-key art style and short, but meaningful conversations. Supposedly, the author had to provide a list of his intended typos from his accidental ones.Here are a few des...

    Esse livro é muito fofo. Conta a história de um alien que vem para a Terra estudar o que é ser um humano e ao longo das páginas ele interage com diferentes animais e seres vivos.É uma leitura rápida e encantadora.A única coisa que me incomodou é que todos os diálogos são escritos propositalmente com "erros de inglês" como "becuase" ao invés de "because" etc.

    everyone’s a aliebn when ur a aliebn too is a graphic novel written by Jomny Sun. Here are a few interesting facts about Sun: he has extraordinarily cool friends like Lin-Manuel Miranda and Joss Whedon, he’s tremendously bright (a Ph.D. candidate at MIT) and he has an absurdly popular Twitter account that peddles in something called “weird Twitter”. Apparently the kids these days are consuming this “weird Twitter” quicker than a Wall ...

    This is such an adorable and genius work of poetic art. A little “aliebn” named jomny is assigned the task of studying the “humabns” from Earth and along the way makes “friemds” and learns about himself and his place in the world. The art style is adorable if not minimalistic and gives these deep philosophical ideas a sense of lightheartedness to show the reader it’s okay to feel a bit down. This book is for people who need to cry a...

    It's cute. There are some lines that particularly resonated with me as I was reading the book. But the entire time I couldn't help but feel confused. Why wasn't I crying, as other reviewers did? Why wasn't I chuckling, feeling an intense pain in my heart, cheering on the characters? I don't think I'm completely apathetic, or I probably wouldn't have bothered to even read Everyone's a Aliebn in the first place. The typos, the juvenile conversation...
