Book Summary

An utterly unique take on the apocalyptic graphic novel from an Oscar-nominated animator, a cult classic finally available after the original self-published edition quickly sold out.

Legendary animator Don Hertzfeldt is beloved for his wildly imaginative vision and understated, ironic sense of existential humor. His work has the ability to transcend its singular nature and tap into universal themes like mortality, nature, isolation, parenthood, and, naturally, the mutant apocalypse.

In his first and only book to date, written and drawn entirely on post-it notes, he uses deceptively simple, charming characters to bring to life a post-apocalyptic earth. This picaresque traipse through the end times is a visually striking work that includes a chase by mutants, a macabre human display in a modern art museum, and a hoped-for visit from the Easter Eel.

This is the perfect book for anyone who knows the apocalypse is imminent, and wants to laugh at it.

    I didn't know what to expect with The End of the World by Don Hertzfeldt. However, I do like graphic novels, so I decided I'd give this one a try. When I won a copy of this book in Goodreads, I was over the moon!

    First off, the illustrations are great. Don't go in expecting fantastic illustrations because these are not. They basic stick figure drawings...okay, maybe a tab better than just stick figures but not by much. I don't mean that in a bad way because I loved how simple the illustrations were. They fit the subject matter of this novel perfectly.

    I loved how random this book was. I imagine it will leave some people confused because it seems a bit muddled and all over the place, but that's just the way it's meant to be, and it works. It made me appreciate this graphic novel that much more. It doesn't make sense, but yet, it does. You'll just have to read this graphic novel yourself to see what I'm getting out. It's hard to explain.

    This is a very quick read since most of it is illustrations with a quick sentence. I think it took me all of about 15 minutes to read, give or take a few minutes.

    I would definitely recommend The End of the World by Don Hertzfeldt. It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but it was definitely my cup of hot cocoa!
