Feb 15, Doug rated it really liked it. Martin's brain works in weird and wonderful ways - he's kind of a lo-fi Gary Larson. Some of these drawings are LOL, some are just head-scratchingly odd, and some are But since the whole book can be 'read' in under an hour, and it's guaranteed to bring a smile to your lips and a chuckle to your mouth, what more could you want?
May 03, Becky Shaknovich rated it really liked it. It's a book of drawings. It's funny. I LOL-ed on the subway several times. It would be ideal to read this book with at least one other person around so you can point and say "Ohmigawd looook! I suppose I could have showed it to strangers on the train, but that's probably ill-advised. I tend to find most mainstream comedy offensive. This book only offended me mildly, and only a few times.
Good job, Mr. Gold star. Martin's last book had drawings interspersed with text. I t It's a book of drawings.
I think I might like that format better. But this was still good. Maybe it would have worked better as a picture book or coffee table book-type book. Samuel my wee little brother who is 11 years old, for those of you who don't know me really enjoyed the drawings in Martin's last book, even though I told him not to read it becasue it's inappropriate for children. I bet Samuel would really enjoy this title and probably spend hours tracing the funny drawings Mar 05, Erin Boyington rated it liked it Shelves: A stand-up comic's compilation of his simple and pun-filled sketches, part xkcd , part The Far Side.
Demetri Martin had a short-lived show on Comedy Central , and I remember his drawings being the best part.
It's full of visual punning and absurdity there's even a desert island drawing for those Far Side fans. The jokes are sometimes buried, but many of them made me laugh out loud after the moment of realization.
There are a few duds, too, but they pass so briefly. This book could likely be rea A stand-up comic's compilation of his simple and pun-filled sketches, part xkcd , part The Far Side. This book could likely be read in a half an hour. If you like your humor weird and nerdy charts, graphs, and Venn diagrams abound , this is definitely the book for you.
Jun 02, Keely rated it it was amazing. I am always surprised by his perspective and perceptions of the world. He navigates our social and linguistic constructs deftly, revealing the absurd and ultra-pseudo-logical as well as those profound human truths that we all think we're alone in experiencing.
What it comes down to is this: I literally couldn't put the book down until I'd finished it; I was concerned I'd wake my sleeping child with the midnight ruckus of my guffaws; I can't wait to finish writing my undergrad thesis so I can read Martin's book again. download this. You will not be disappointed. Makes a great gift you can borrow back!
Nov 07, Ryan Bailey rated it really liked it. This is a fun way to spend half an hour. I've liked Martin's stand up routines and Comedy Central sketch show for like 10 years, and pre-ordered and read his previous book, "This is a Book. I was surprised at how many of the drawings here were not comedy, but poignant, or just depressing.
This is the first time I felt like I got a gl This is a fun way to spend half an hour. This is the first time I felt like I got a glimpse into the non-comedian side of Demetri Martin, who finds women confusing and elusive, and life a little futile. And some of it is just good artwork, all done with single lines of pen. Mar 20, Andrew rated it liked it. Classic Demetri Martin-style sketch humor.
Seriously, it's all drawings. John Green would love this book, because of the high volume of humorous Venn Diagrams.
I have to say, Martin can make some surprisingly sophisticated jokes with some simple drawings. Not to say that most or all of the are sophisticated, but there are some surprises in there.
If you're a Demetri Martin fan, you're going to love this book, get it!
If you're not, well, maybe you should look him up on YouTube before you download it. Feb 05, Ron Davidson rated it liked it. Demetri Martin is one of my favorite comedians, and I liked his first book quite a bit. But this book -- eh, it was okay, but it didn't make me roll on the floor laughing.
The entire book can be read in a few minutes, since it consists entirely of line drawings and charts for lack of a better word. If you have seen his stand-up act where he frequently uses drawing and graphics , you will recognize his style in the book -- very simple, sometimes profound, sometimes just a little corny.
It's a Demetri Martin is one of my favorite comedians, and I liked his first book quite a bit. It's a fun little time-waster, but his stand-up act is better. Apr 12, Martin rated it really liked it. Martin is a madcap genius. Those absurd "what-if? He holds on to those, mulls them, records them. I think that's his secret. There are some misses here, but there are some hits that you have goggling at his talent. He has the combined ingenuity of the clever parts of famous cartoonists' brains.
It's all crammed in. It's astonishing, really. Sep 24, Laura rated it really liked it Shelves: I love Demetri Martin.
His first book This is a Book had me laughing nonstop. I admit there were a handful of drawings that I couldn't even figure out--just pure bizarreness. But I must say I particularly love his Venn diagrams and charts. That's where his super powers lie. Best for older teens and up, due to some profanity and mature themes in some of the drawings. Apr 17, Lacy Lou rated it really liked it. My eyes saw and tried to make my brain understand the meaning of every page I had my face pointing at.
I laughed audibly a couple of times and imagined myself laughing for most of the book. I changed my rating from five to four stars several times. I didn't feel right giving the extra star since it is mostly pictures. Mar 21, Sally rated it liked it. Like Demetri Martin's stand-up, this book is at times simplistic, clever, and profound--and sometimes all at the same time. His penchant for palindromes, wordplay, and puzzles is indulged throughout this book, which will appeal to thoughtful readers and fans of Gary Larson's The Far Side whom Martin credits as one of his big influences.
Oct 30, Alarice rated it it was ok. I had high expectations for Demetri Martin. I loved his first book and I love his stand up comedy. Howver, I found myself thinking only a few pages were actually funny. Got the chance to read an advance copy. Fantastic, as always. But wish it was published as a hardcover. Jun 20, Tyler Lutz rated it really liked it. A complete and utter rip off of Gary Larson, but that's OK in my book. Oct 31, Tim K rated it really liked it.
My focus is not the greatest right now, but his book was just what I needed.
Some of his stuff was hilarious, some pretty funny, some just funny, some just plain silly funny, some I had to pause and think View 1 comment. Sep 18, Bett Correa-Bollhoefer rated it it was amazing. The laughs build as you read in each reading session. I don't recommend reading in a public place like a plane because you will get very very loud.
Incredibly witty and light read. Mar 19, Nancy rated it really liked it Shelves: I got this book as a first read.
If you like Demetri Martin which I do you will like the book because you are already used to his comedy but even someone who isn't familiar with his stand up will like it because the drawings while simple are thought out and many are pretty funny.
