'Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Terrible Things': A Review

Prepare yourself for one of the funniest and warmest books that will put your heart and mind into an absolute laughter. This book was filled with absolute honesty and sincerity about many of the most unpleasant issues that many people are dealing with—things that many individuals are finding hard to speak out about, in which Jenny Lawson has given them a voice.

Jenny Lawson, a famous bloggess and an incredibly funny and witty person, presents her own story in this sort-of memoir, within several essays, and in a horrific bravery, about her everlasting battle with mental illness.

Delving into every single essay and discovering more about Jenny’s own mental illness (because as she puts it, ‘my mental-illness is not your mental-illness’) from childhood until her adult-life with her own family, I find myself relating to her own fight against depression, in which she tries to recede in her own weird and ridiculous ways, contributing by doing so by trying to feel normal, and making her story more powerful.

Moreover, I find myself appreciating her honesty and acceptance to her own self. Her funny nature—the magic of her own persona—have made the book even more related and much more genuine.

What else can I say but GO READ THIS BOOK RIGHT NOW!! It is a book to be read, cherished and shared!!
