Reviews 1,000 Feelings for Which There Are No Names

  • Jon(athan) Nakapalau
    !!!!!!!!! - the feeling of reading a book that identifies feelings you have that you never thought to name! Funtastic quick read that will make you laugh!
  • Fareya
    This book is essentially what it claims to be - an amusing collection of a thousand feelings for which words don't exist. Hand-lettered, numbered and compiled in a charming fashion with creative illustrations and imaginative graphic elements, 1000 Feelings for Which There Are No Names was a joy to flip through. It is not a self-help book, or an inspirational one and neither does it give any advise on emotions, it is simply an assortment of a thou...

    Dit was echt een superleuk boek, maar ja, niet eentje die je in een keer uitleest, dus ik heb sporadisch gelezen wanneer ik zin had in weer een berg gevoelens. Wat dat is wat dit boek is, een boek over gevoelens. Een heerlijk feest van herkenning (en misschien wat schaamte). Ik lag regelmatig wel dubbel, zat met mijn hoofd te knikken omdat ik het er helemaal mee eens was, of mijn hoofd aan het schudden omdat ik me afvroeg wie dit als gevoel kon h...

    I love this little book of 1000 feelings. Most are true for me. Not the ones about children but the ones about having an older brother and sitting on the couch with them then their untimely death. I miss my brother. Please check it out it is a quick read and you may find points that reflect on your life.
  • Audra (Unabridged Chick)
    This intriguing little book -- less than 300 pages -- contains precisely what the title says: one thousand fleeting moments for which there is no single word to describe them. Whimsical, occasionally edge, melancholy and exultant in equal part, this is a lovely sort of coffee table book that invites one to thumb through and share.Hand lettered and illustrated by Ray Fenwick, each feeling is articulated in a different font, punctuated with images ...
  • Chau
    Really cute illustrations. You will find yourself nodding to agree while reading this book.
  • Mish
    He should have named some of those feeling. Smh ..
  • Brianeth Garcia
    Fun read! I found myself agreeing to most of the feelings named.
  • Kara Sabbagh
    I found this book to be “meh” at best. Didn’t finish it page to page. Good for an ice breaker / conversation starting thing maybe, but could have taken the route of “less is more”. Had there been a hundred pages only, with more illustrations or attention to each, rather than this infinite list, maybe I would have taken to it more. I also don’t know that the title is the most accurate for everything inside. I was almost expecting a typ...

    There are feelings really for which there are no names. You do know what name or word applies to those feelings. But sometimes, names confound you. They leave you wondering, what is the word that should fit the emotion. And to add to that, if you find the words for a thousand emotions then nothing like it. This book has it all. “1000 Feelings for which there are no Names” by Mario Giordano is a book which you can open to any page and be stunn...

    **I received a free copy of this book from the publisher for my honest review**The title pretty much explains what this one is all about. It's not the kind of book to sit down and read in one sitting, but would be a lovely gift or coffee table book. It's the kind of book that is nice to dip in and out of. Many of the 1,000 feelings could be used as jumping off points for journaling, other writing, or even just discussion among friends. I could re...
  • Sandy S
    1,000 FEELING FOR WHICH THERE ARE NO NAMES is exactly what the title implies. Mario Giordano has compiled 1,000 different types of emotions and feelings and has applied them to everyday occurrences in life and love.e.g. The Inexplicable AVERSION to answering this one stupid emailThe lifelong YEARNING to be taken seriously by your fatherThe DISMAY at having forgotten something very important.Although the feelings and emotions are nothing new-every...

    If you are wizened and old and jaded, you will think "analog clickbait."If you are in college, this will blow your gd mind I think. The handwritten graphics are a visual treat. I was looking for something like this: The nauseous anticipation mixed with shame mixed with magical thinking mixed with hope and fear and the feeling of life when your first love comments on your friend's facebook post. i.e. this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJG0l...T...
  • Chanda
    This book is such a great addition to my library! I have long been a fan of books and games that pose conversations starting questions. This is similar in execution. The book is filled with phrases that call to mind feelings that are not quite as succinct as those we can easily name. By triggering thoughts of those feelings the book serves as a conversational jump-starter or a great way to jog a stilled writer's hand. Untraditional though it may ...

    A cute little book thats does what it sets out to do and nothing more. Basically one of those "wow, that's so relatable" Twitter accounts, except in book form. It's not something you read cover to cover, but flipping to a random page is always amusing. I particularly relate with "294. The annoyance over this squandered afternoon," so I'll keep this review short.
  • Medeia Sharif
    It's just as the title says. These are 1,000 feelings that have no exact name. It was really cool flipping through the pages with their interesting fonts and illustrations. I've had many of these emotions, while others I haven't experienced yet. There is a full range of feelings for both genders and people of all ages.
  • Vanessa
    Really fun little book. Title describes exactly what it is. Not a novel, just a fun collection of feelings that don't have a good descriptor in the english language. Some of them were a little odd, however. Made me feel like the author was a bit of a religious freak... but most of them are great. Makes me want to make up my own. :)
  • Bara'ah
    Love love love this book! It's perfection in the form of pages!! I have to buy it!!!!
  • Adee
    This short book was so sweet! There were definitely a lot of feelings that I could relate to in this book. The artwork itself was very beautiful yet simple, and I enjoyed that very much.
  • Allie
    Fonts are marvelous, emotions/ descriptions spot on!
  • Sue
    Such potential. Wasted. This was a cheap version of The Book of Awesome. Just random thoughts with real emotions and different situations.
  • Chenye G
    A cute little read with many listed sentiments actually captured my laughters:) a witty write:)
  • Kattie
    A cute and kitschy book that was fun to check out.

    Did I enjoy this book: I did enjoy this book.It’s different. It’s quirky. It’s thought-provoking. There were quite a few times that I was nodding along, thinking that I had felt that way at some point. There were some feelings that had me shaking my head. There were some that made me laugh.I took this book to a family picnic and we all read from it. It would make a great party game or conversation starter.I think my favorite feeling was thi...

    You won't be able to escape yourself in "1,000 Feelings for Which There Are No Names" by Mario Giordano. We're all in there somewhere--along with everyone we've ever met. The range of emotions, shared in random, right-on thoughts, is amazing. Once I started reading this book, I couldn't stop until I read it through. I have picked it back up numerous times--sometimes just reading where it fell open, and other times looking up specific topics in th...

    With such a wide range of unnamed emotions to list there is a bit of repetition here and there but overall there will be plenty of 'nodding your head' in understanding type moments when you come across an undefinable feeling described so succinctly by Mario Giordano.The expressive yet understated hand lettering by Ray Fenwick also helps by adding great visual flair to the volume.
  • Tracey S
    From the sublime:"The panic at the inability to hold onto this one moment"to the ridiculous (but funny, and a bit true):"The fear of having a twin somewhere who's being sought as a serial killer by Interpol"
