  • david sent me an awesome birthday box, and this book was inside, ready to make me laugh at the misfortunes of dinosaurs, snowmen, and cassette tapes.oh, and also, me:however, the really poignant thing about this book is that there was a small fire at the store on sunday, and the water from the putting out of the fire leaked down to the ground floor, onto the table where this book was featured. so guess what?? all this book's friends are indeed dead - drowned and waterlogged and swollen with nast [...]


  • A dinosaur says all it's friends are dead. Then a baker says all his friends are bread. Then a zombie says all his friends are undead. I'm surprised they missed so many other hilarious opportunities. How about a pencil saying all it's friends are lead? Or what about a tired guy saying all my friends are beds? You could have a native saying all my friends are red. Or even Colonel Kurtz, sitting on a throne of decapitated bodies, saying all my friends are heads. Sometimes this book will mix up the [...]


  • I read this book tonight. It took me 5 minutes. It was hilarious! 5 minutes well spent! This one has to be my favorite:


  • One of the greatest joys of GoodReads is stumbling on a book due to a friends review. Though humor is subjective and there isn't really much I can say about All My Friends Are Dead other than it is hysterical, I owe my laughter to Matthew. This was my favorite though I loved them all and really liked how the whole book came together. Simple, fast and fun.


  • The vagaries of the reading life are a funny thing. Sometimes you’ll blow a big wad of cash for a hardback and the thing will suck raw eggs. Sometimes you pay a buck or less at some Library book sale or garage sale and discover an absolute treasure that stays with you for the rest of your days(My favorite example is The Collected Poems of Philip Levine, a just a criminal inversion of cost vs. worth-which I paid a buck for over 15 years ago and have read with great joy over and over again). A v [...]


  • World’s shortest read, my shortest review. This is a super entertaining picture book for adults. Each page contains a picture with one short sentence, just like in a kid’s book. It reminded me a comedian’s deadpan one-liners, except with the added fun of having them illustrated right in front of you. Super clever and surprisingly profound, it shows you how everyone and everything (like socks and cassette tapes) have it tough. Who knew I’d find myself sympathizing with inanimate objects, [...]



  • An amusing Picture book where various odd characters talk about their friends in witty one-liners.It's so simple! I think I can make my own versions about this, minus the illustrations of course.All my friends are Imaginary.Ummm Should we be concerned about Sreyas?No, Wait. Scratch that. I am not making my own version.Did he sell his friends? Or did he eat them?! What's happening here?!


  • My daughter asked for this for her 21st birthday. Of course, I peeked . . . okay, I'm lying, I read the entire thing in about 10 minutes. This is, in essence, a book for existential children . . . or child existentialists . . . or cynical adults who don't like to read but like grim humor in the form of a children's book. If Sartre had had children (did he? I don't know, but I suspect not), he would have read this to them at bedtime every night. Because any night could be your last . . . PS: I li [...]


  • I didn't really like this yikes. I promise, I do have a sense of humour I just didn't find it funny and I didn't really get the big hype. It wasn't for me so I wouldn't recommend it.


  • Oh, the sweet, sweet ironyNingún amigo mío está muerto, pues, no tengo amigos. Okay no, no estoy tan jodido.Me temo que me estoy volviendo adicto a los libros de adultos disfrazados de historias infantiles. Son brillantes.



  • I know, I knowy one measly star to classics like A Farewell to Arms, The Bell Jar, and A Separate Peace, and just three stars to The Waste Land?And now this?!?Don't try and shame me. I feel bad enough about it already.Some times I think I'd like to live foreverBut just look at this sad dinosaurl his friends are dead.And no one even calls him a "Brontosaurus" anymore.And what about this old guy?Maybe he reminds you of the old poet of Sonnet 30 who laments "precious friends hid in death's dateless [...]


  • This is a funny book about people with no friends because of several reasons: meteors, age, lonely jobs, Internet, death.I felt sorry for all the characters but especially for this tree. I mean, look at it, a lonely piece of wood whose only companion is a bunch of indifferent leaves. Not even birds' nests. He turned into a coffee table and, surrounded by hundreds of objects in some house, still had no friends.It seems when you're desperate to connect with people, you become some sort of friend r [...]


  • "Sometimes I feel alone. Some days are long and hard. But when I look out into the world, I am struck by the impossible beauty of it all. Those billions of magnificent accidents that led us to where we are today, that led us to paper planes and nautilus shells and the tiny, crooked smiles of children. When I think about all the small perfections of the world, I have faith that my time will come. I have faith that someday, a warm light will flood over me and I will find peace."


  • This little tome is quite possibly The Best Book Ever.Yes, it could be said that its a tad bit morbid, but that's how we play at my house. Build yourself a blanket fort and share a plate of cookies with someone you love (unless everyone you know is dead) and enjoy this great book, together. I promise you'll laugh 'till you cry or pee your pants, whichever comes first.






  • These are cartoon frames that make up a loosely put together story. Many of the cartoons are funny, wickedly funny, and a few are hilarious. The story does come together in a satisfying way. Very amusing with some rather somber parts too, depending on the readers’ outlook. This is a small, slight $10 hardcover mini book, a bit too expensive for what it is, and that’s a shame because I’m thinking of a few not yet dead friends who might like it. I think I’ll suggest they do what I did: bor [...]


  • A quick (say, five minutes) read and a great little gift to give somebody. Thanks, GReader Carol, for reviewing it. I actually found it more poignant than laugh-out-loud funny. I got it at the library, but will try to remember it for eventual gift giving.


  • I've always regretted that when I had a baby I wasn't clever enough to think of teaching her humorously inappropriate knowledge, like the baby who knows dead American presidents. I like to blame sleep deprivation for my lack of iniative, but mostly it was because I had a baby so young I was still in monkey-mind. I didn't become actually conscious till I was about 28, by which time it was far too late.I would almost have another baby just to raise them on this book. A time machine would be prefer [...]


  • Este corto libro me ha dejado con una tonta sonrisa en mi rostro y, aunque no suelo leer historias para niños, me alegro de haberle dado una oportunidad a ésta, porque resultó en una amena lectura. Divertido y placentero, All My Friends Are Dead es uno de esos libros que de alguna manera te hacen sentir bien cuando estás triste. Me he reído a carcajadas leyéndolo. He disfrutado mucho con sus noventa y séis páginas. Y también he obtenido un bonito mensaje y reflexión. When I think about [...]


  • I kept seeing this book everywhere for the past couple years. It was all over for a while. And it's prominently displayed in my favorite bookstore. But our library doesn't have a copy, and I don't have 10 bucks at the moment. (Technically, any moment)And this isn't a dig on my library: I love the place. Is it weird that I asked for this book on inter-library loan? That's something you do for academic books - not for books like this, right?But I did. And it was totally worth it. In fact, there's [...]



  • While my friends and I were waiting in line for over two hours to get into an event (we had planned on waiting one hour but forgot the time change as we went west) the undeniable urge to relieve myself from hours of driving and drinking energy drinks finally caught up to me. The problem was that I had to decide between sneaking down an alley and committing a crime or finding a store that would let a stranger use the bathroom. About a block from where we were waiting there was a small independent [...]


  • Read all my reviews on urlphantomhiveoklikes I was reading some reviews of this tiny booklet and was quite surprised about the strong emotions it was causing in people, who seem aghast at the fact that it has a higher average rating then certain literary masterpieces. Although everyone is obviously entitled to an opinion of the their own, I simply don't see the problem. They are two completely different things, read for two completely different reasons.But I'm digressing. If you're following me [...]


  • What I don't get is how this got published in the first place. No, wait - what Ireallydon't get is that this book actually got a "sequel" published: All my friends are still dead. Don't worry: I read both at a bookstore (and saved some money).I don't know whether I should be happy that almost anything can be published (in case I want to write a book later) or whether I should be sad that books like this get rated so high.For more about this book, I refer you to Dylan's review


  • Came across this little book in City Lights bookstore in San Fran. My eye caught several people browsing through this little cartoonisty book looking like a kids book and seeing all the people grinning, chuckling I picked it up and found myself laughing too. It's not for kids, it's sort of tragi comic, about the passing of things, but pretty damn funny, cute. The tree and the end table story is LOL funny, the meaning of having many Facebook friends sharply observed I am gonna put this booklet on [...]
