Review for Gudetama: Love for the Lazy

Gudetama: Love for the Lazy, Wook-Jin Clark, Yellow, Heart, Chocolate Box, Gudetama, Egg, Comic, HumourI received this comic from Netgalley in exchange of an honest review.

I love Gudetama, the cute lazy egg, so I couldn’t resist this comic when I saw it. I first thought it was manga, given it is Gudetama, but it is a comic. 😛 But since I didn’t know that when I started I read the manga way and was quickly finding out I should just read it the normal book way.

In this book we meet our lazy egg, Gudetama and see him help out various people with problems in love. Like the guy who looks normal but has a BIG BIG problem, thankfully Gudetama has a solution for him, though as his friends also said, they can’t meet at that place all the time. I had a big laugh at the second story and how Gudetama was using a dating app and getting all the attention (then again, if the one seeking help has that kind of profile… um I can imagine him not getting any attention). And each story has someone new who needs the help of love guru Gudetama. Though if they actually get good advice? Well, I guess that depends on how you look at it. He did have some valid points from what I could see, but sometimes I was just scratching my head. I do wonder why people still come to him… knowing that he doesn’t always answer right.
But I did like seeing all the various people and what kind of trouble they had. I am not sure how I felt about the guy who was for OJ and his girlfriend for Cranberry. Who the f cares? I am a tea person, my hubby is a coffee person. We drink our own drinks and don’t give a f. Do people really care about such little things?

The gift guide.. who the hell gifts a person a bottle of vitamins? Also gift certificate being a bad present? Excuse me? Give me all the book gift certificates in the world, you make me happier with that than a tattoo or chocolates.

And the comic ends with various very short life questions asked to Gudetama with a very easy and lazy answer.

I love the art of this comic, it fits so well with Gudetama, and I love how colourful everything was.

All in all, despite it being a bit repetitive, I had lots of fun reading this and seeing what kind of advice people wanted and what Gudetama would tell them. Plus, I just adore Gudetama so a whole book with him is just perfection! I would recommend this book.
