Not the funniest of Roz's, although still quite amusing, but it came with a sleep mask that says "I Must Be Dreaming" which I couldn't resist.

Roz Chast is talented and funny. She has a definite style to both her cartoons and her humor. After reading this short “graphic novel” I have to admit that I didn’t wholeheartedly enjoy it. The comics at the beginning of the book are funnier than the later ones. I’m not sure if she ran out of material, or there just isn’t that much humor to be found in her personal dreams.

This is a book that might resonate more with some people than others, especially if your dreams are similar to Chast’s.

If you’re a Roz Chast fan, you could just take a look (while browsing in the bookstore or the library), and unless you insist on owning every copy of her published works, a quick read will suffice.

The illustrations were colorful and fun, but the subject matter was sort of depressing. It was a good illustrated memoir with moments of humor. The subject of death can be unsettling for a lot of people, including me, but Roz Chast tackled the subject in a way that combined all the caring and humorous moments with the sad and stressful moments.

Roz Chast ignores the old adage that everyone hates listening to details about the dreams of others, and convinces us that not only are hers the best dreams, but that we're so very lucky that she chose to draw and to describe them in such hilarious detail! There are recurring dreams, celebrity dreams, food dreams, body horror dreams, and, best of all, many insouciant birds. And there's basically a New Yorker cartoon on every page, even ones that were rejected. About as much fun as you can have while awake.… (lisätietoja)
