Books of Adam: The Blunder Years by Adam Ellis

Adam Ellis knew it was time to leave art school when a fellow student presented her final project to the class: "I put a condom on the Virgin Mary," she announced, unveiling a cheap figurine sheathed in latex. The professor loved it.

Baffled by the praise his classmate receives, and intent on becoming an artist on his own terms, Adam plots his escape to Portland, Oregon to begin his life in the real world--only to realize that adulthood is a lot harder than it looks.

Based on the blog of the same name, BOOKS OF ADAM details Adam's hilarious trials and tribulations in his attempt to become a functioning member of society. From his arrest after shoplifting a bottle of chocolate milk to a misguided attempt to make friends that lands him in a shack with a hippie couple who have just skinned a rabbit and are trying to entice him into a three-some, Adam is an amicable guy who can't seem to keep himself out of trouble.

Paired with his signature black and white illustrations, Adam's stories weave together an uproariously funny and ultimately charming narrative about a young man trying to find his place in the world.

Blog followers will recognize the grin-while-reading/guffaw-at-illustration format but Ellis takes it a step farther and ties the vignettes together into a thoughtful narrative that is both endearing and LOL-inducing. Through relocation, relationships and self-revelations, Ellis' memoirs are easily relatable even if you've never interrupted scissoring vagrants. There are lots of illustrations and his signature style is consistently creative and expressive. Whether or not you've read the blog (yet), The Blunder Years is perfect as a standalone. It's a great way to spend a lazy afternoon - empathizing with Adam and chuckling at his exploits! NOTE: Reading Books of Adam may cause fits of explosive laughter... and embarrassment if in public.

I am a huge fan of Adam Ellis's Blogs, so I was VERY excited to read his new book.  I was not disappointed. This book is laugh out loud funny. I loved the illustrations, pop-culture references, and sharp wit. Reading this book is like having a conversation with one of my best friends.  I can't wait to see what else Adam Ellis has in store.

I've loved his blogs for quite a while. His style of writing is extremely frank with a witty edge to it. His different depictions of situations add to his humor.
