Everything Is Awful: And Other Observations, Matt Bellassai
I got to know Matt Bellassai through his great Whine About It videos, many of which had me in tears from laughing so hard. I gave Everything Is Awful a shot and was happy to get more of the same millennial-based, spot-on, relatable content.
He tells us exactly what we want to hear (“I chug a few bottles of wine throughout the week, which is basically the same as juicing, but with even more antioxidants”) while still letting his personality shine throughout (“It was a beautiful morning — crisp, you might say, if you used words like that to describe the air and not a potato chip”).
I gave this four instead of five stars because the humor and relatability definitely decline in the latter half of the book. He set the bar a tad too high in the beginning and I kept hoping to get more of the earlier material and laughs. Still very much worth a read.
