Don't let the 2/5 fool you, I still recommend the book. It's just that I literally thought that, "it was ok," as the rating suggests. read Everyone You Hate Is Going to Die: And Other Comforting Thoughts on Family, Friends, Sex, Love, and More Things That Ruin Your Life

The funniest book I have ever listened too. It’s heartwarming in parts where it should be but rib shakingly funny through out. reading Everyone You Hate Is Going to Die: And Other Comforting Thoughts on Family, Friends, Sex, Love, and More Things That Ruin Your Life But there’s also some cringey stuff in here, and worse, some unfocused stuff. I think it could have used a bit more editing, perhaps been about a third shorter – the chapters about his toxic relationship is particularly painful, because he just rants in an angry way without giving many specifics, so there’s not a lot to grab onto.

It's hardly surprising that it's seamless as Sloss has plundered his shows as a rich content seam here – particularly Jigsaw, Dark, and X. No bad thing considering the acclaim and thought that went into each of them, as well as the hot topics that continue to be relevant. One might question, why do I love Daniel Sloss this much? Genius comedian: to make you laugh but then after a few days you find yourself still thinking about his analogies and jokes because some shit he said was more than laughs. (JK It's the dark humor...) Honestly, my huge respect for Daniel Sloss comes from his Show X, which made me laugh my ass off and then cry myself to sleep. Touring the show more than 300 times in a span of a year to make sure the message gets out there is something that I appreciate dearly. But then I watched his other shows and it was my first time seeing someone using the same dark jokes and being honest about his shitty thoughts and that allowed me to be more true to myself I think. From beginning to end, the entire book was non-stop hysterical. I can totally relate to David as he "dissects" every particular relationship he or his friends have ever been in and he can tell whether or not to end it. Many scenarios in the book, I had a lot of a-ha moments and they justified me ending the many difficult relationships I had. Our community will not only relate to this book, but it will be a much needed comedy to read during this pandemic.

Everyone You Hate is Going to Die by Daniel Sloss - Waterstones

Everyone You Hate…’ turns out to be a very enjoyable read, unsurprisingly. Written in the rhythm of a seasoned comedian's set, there are laughs liberally sprinkled, serious bits with elements of self-examination, and the impression that each carefully placed word has simply come to him in conversation. Just like any good Edinburgh show. Which we have all been missing of late, even as shows from two years ago are now setting out their tour dates once again. Buy Everyone You Hate is Going to Die: And Other Comforting Thoughts on Family, Friends, Sex, Love, and More Things That Ruin Your Life here. A lot of serious points about life (and death) told by one of the funniest comedians ever to come out of Scotland, so they end up funny anyway. In the first book from one of this generation's hottest and boldest young comedians, Daniel Sloss presents a transgressive and hilarious analysis of all of our dysfunctional relationships, and attempts to point us in the vague direction of sanity.Poignant at times, but ultimately this book left me with aching facial muscles from pure joyful laughter. One of this generation's hottest and boldest young comedians presents a transgressive and hilarious analysis of all of our dysfunctional relationships, and attempts to point us in the vague direction of sanity. Daniel Sloss is one of my favorite comedians and even I had front row seats when he came to Athens the September of 2021. I had many laugh out loud moments while reading his book, but at times it was just tedious reading how many times he had sex in his life, or reading some of the same jokes that he wrote for his stand-up specials just with more elaboration. When the book is at its best, it reads like one of his specials, just unedited. If you like his comedy, read it, if you don't know him, binge his three specials and then read it. If you don't like him, this book won't win you over. After a friend recommended Jigsaw and Dark. I have gone on to see Daniel live. This book did not disappoint.
