Reviews Everyone's a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too

  • Whitney Atkinson
    "the comforting thing about feeling lonely is that every thing that has ever existed also knows what loneliness feels like too. you may be sad because you are sad. it is ok to be sad. but if you are sad because happiness is fleeting, just remember that sadness is also fleeting too."This is the most wholesome book I have ever read in my entire life. It's a new favorite of all time, and definitely something I'll return to when I have anxiety. It's ...

    Guys, this is 3 1/2 star, because I have to say: 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....
  • Chelsea (chelseadolling reads)
    This was really sweet, but I don't feel like it was as life altering for me as it seems to have been for others :( big womp.
  • Raeleen Lemay
    This book is like some sort of strange mashup of self help, graphic novel, and philosophy text all mushed into one. Highly enjoyed!
  • Samantha
    Um... not my style.Just some random motivational/ironic quotes with simple drawings that's sorta supposed to be inspiring I guess..?
  • April (Aprilius Maximus)
    literally the most precious book in the world
  • Emma
    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!

    Everyone's a Aliebn When Ur a Aliebn Too is an endearing artwork delectably wrapped in simple copy and richly infused with existential philosophy — thick, but still soft to the bite and still pretty good while sipping a cup of your favourite tea (or coffee).A lonesome alien named Jomny has been sent on a mission to Earth to know about humans, but what he discovers there is but a tip of the iceberg. Soon, he learns about these extraordinary crea...
  • Melanie Page
    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.
  • Korrina (OwlCrate)
    Surprisingly emotional, especially if you’ve ever lost someone close to you.
  • ellie
    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...
  • David Yoon
    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...
  • Kate (GirlReading)
    When I picked this up, I wasn't expecting to find an all new favourite book but sure enough, that's exactly what I found. From the first page until the last, I was smiling from ear to ear, whilst simultaneously not knowing whether to laugh or cry. This was simply wonderful. It was heartwarming, hilarious, relatable and utterly adorable. Not only did this book have me relating to an onion and and egg, it had me relating to a hedgehog on such a dee...
  • Calista
    Where do I belong? That is the important question being asked by this little aliebn. This is cute and should be thought provoking. It is a quick read.I do like the end. It's ok to be sad when you lose friends, as it means you felt something is the gist.

  • Jen/The Tolkien Gal/ジェニファー
    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 ...
  • Mariah Roze
    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!
  • Kayla Dawn
    This is so beautiful and nice and cute and all of the things
  • Erica
    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.
  • Diane
    This was a surprisingly moving and philosophical comic. I'd first heard of everyone's a aliebn when the title showed up on a list of the best graphic novels of 2017. It's the story of an alien who is sent to earth to report on what humans are like, and the alien makes friends with different animals and plants on earth. (Animals and plants can talk, dontcha know.)The drawings are deceptively simple — I had assumed this would be a cute, amusing s...

    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...
  • Hamad
    I only read this because my favorite booktuber liked it and recommended it.It was meaningful with cute drawings and lots of puns (I love those), but I felt it was directed toward younger readers and it was a bit jumpy so 3 stars is what I feel is a good rating for this.
  • Merphy Napier
    very thought provoking and will be an excellent discussion starter for deeper subjects when my son is old enough to read it with him
  • Justin
    Before picking up this book, I would highly recommend checking the author out on Twitter. I really don’t know who he is, but I heard about this book on a podcast, and it was helpful to read through a bunch of his tweets before diving into this thing. He has a unique brand of humor that may or may not appeal to you. It appealed to me for the 20 minutes or so it took to hammer through this book. There are lots of misspelled words. There are trees...

    Find this and other Reviews at In Tori LexThis was a unique and heartwarming journey through Jomny learns how to face his fears and learn more about the struggles on life. The artwork was simple but the use of blank space and short encounters worked great to convey feeling and allow the reader to experience Jomny's journey. I thought this would be catered to children because of the style of the artwork and use of animals. Instead I was treated to...

    4.5 STARSthis book made me want to have an existential crisis but,,,the graphics were adorable so i'm not madep.s. finals are killing me and THESE are the type of books I need. quick, adorable graphics, puns, mildly distributing quotes. how much better can life hey
  • Chad
    I guess I just don't get it. This is on most of the best of 2017 lists, but I can't for the life of me see why. Some people take it as this existential look at life. I took it as a syrupy sweet, cloying book about nothing and found it a complete waste of time.
