My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ve seen a few of Jim Benton’s cartoons on the internet (the cover cartoon being a particular favourite) and so was very grateful to him, Andrews McMeel Publishing and NetGalley for the ARC of Man, I Hate Cursive.

The full book does not disappoint. Many of the cartoons – covering a wide range of topics including relationships, religion and modern technology – are laugh out loud funny but, surprisingly, some of them are also quite touching! They reminded me a little of Gary Larson’s Far Side. I’d recommend this book to anyone with a good, but slightly skewed, sense of humour!
