My Review:

11,002 Things to Be Miserable About: The Satirical Not-So-Happy Book by 11,002 Things to Be Miserable About: The Satirical Not-So-Happy BookLia Romeo
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Long Miserable Nights Will Just Fly By With This Book! Reads like a hate list out of a manic depressive’s diary.

I have to say that this is one book where only a negative review will do! It’s gloomy, depressing, bleak as the bowels of Hell itself, and oddly funny because of it, even though all it amounts to is a list of 11,002 Things to be Miserable about. Rather a clever idea, which I liked, but I am not sure it’s everyone’s idea of fun. It’s bizarre, and reads like a hate list out of a manic depressive’s diary, but is strangely addictive.

I like the look of this book, it’s short, fat and mainly black, with grey edges and a white miserable smiley face. With 448 pages, it is thicker than I expected.

Although there isn’t much to it content wise, (it is just a list after all) 11,002 Things to be Miserable About is a handy book to have on your coffee table, a quirky stocking filler for that grumpy young or old person in your life, antipsychotic medication, and an easy read to pick up whenever your abysmal life needs a shot of satirical wretched wit. It had me laughing so much it reduced me to tears.

Sitting on a tack, self-so*omy with broomsticks, photographs of places you’ll never go to, and knowing that tomorrow will be just as terrible as it was today – are prime examples of the kind of miserableness you’ll find here. Incidentally, I have to wonder what life is like in the husband and wife Lia and Nick Romeo household. Bet there’s always something for this dismal duo of authors to moan about!

Overall: Finally a book that not only makes you feel more miserable than you were, but one that gives even more reasons to end it all. The book, that is…

11,002 Things to Be Miserable About is a list of all the reasons NOT to wake up in the morning. Ironically enough, when you put all of them under one cover, it’s actually very funny. This decidedly absurd inventory of misery is perfect for sardonic and disaffected youth, for people seeking gifts for Traumatic Event Birthdays (like 21, 25, 30, 40, and, well, anything after 40), and for anyone else with an offbeat sense of humor. Enjoy.

  1. This looks fun! In, like a gallows humor kinda way ha ha. I actually kind of want to read this, it might make all my problems seem trivial lol.

  2. Sounds like fun. Kind of. LOL I have a book titled 14.00 Things To Be Happy About by Barbara Ann Kipfer. This would be a fun companion book.
