    I had a hard time catching the tone of this book, but it's short and sorta sweet, though it assumes an asteroid is on its way to obliterate the planet (or, maybe asks the question: How will you face the inevitable end of life?). Lots of sad/cute lonely animal guys seem to live alone doing their little hobbies by themselves, but the suggestion is that they need (I guess this is kind of a spoiler?) to get together? I mean, there's no plot, just a series of one page cartoons, many of them featuring I had a hard time catching the tone of this book, but it's short and sorta sweet, though it assumes an asteroid is on its way to obliterate the planet (or, maybe asks the question: How will you face the inevitable end of life?).

I Will Reassess the Value of My Collectibles. Melancholy ending. Oh, you want to know if everyone dies from the asteroid? So you're a crazy cock-eyed optimist? My Voice Will be Heard, the bespectacled cockroach barista says, early on, assertively, and you know where he will be, in the end, post-apocalypse: Sittin' Pretty.

    A series of daily affirmations brought to life with some humorous illustrations of anthropomorphic animals realizing an asteroid is headed to earth. It wasn't until this point though that I began to enjoy the subversiveness of the art compared to the earnestness of the affirmations. Received a review copy from Forge Books and NetGalley.

    I received an advance reader copy of this book to read in exchange for an honest review via netgalley and the publishers. I Will Not Die Alone is a touching and yet funny at times book about a group of animals told in illustrations and short but simple sayings. The animals are facing the earth being destroyed by a meteor. They realise how short and precious life is to them and decide to live the last days of it to the fullest.

This book gives such an important message to the reader - don't waste what short time you have on earth, live each day to its fullest and helps you see from a new perspective what matters and what doesn't, what's inlmportant and what's not. I loved how all the animals were not alone anymore at the end of the book.

    Existential anthropomorphism! This started out seeming as if it were very self-helpy Sunday-morning-Instagram affirmations combined with cute and ironic animal images. Luckily it evolved into something more, a meditation on mortality and community and purpose. I'm glad I stuck with this. **Thanks to the artist, publisher, and NetGalley for a free copy in exchange for an honest review. Existential anthropomorphism!

    Happy Pub Day to one of my favorites!! 11/2/21 This was so unexpectedly perfect. I had to read it twice in one sitting. Don’t be impressed. It’s short. I could have read it twenty times without putting much of a dent in my day. The first time, I was confused.

I just wasn’t paying enough attention to the pictures as I read the affirmations. I wasn’t processing them for what they were. But as I approached the ending, my heart flip flopped and I knew I’d just stumbled upon a profoundly beautiful thing. So, I went back to the beginning and, through tears, really took it all in properly. I have now preordered a physical copy for myself. I will hug it, maybe even kiss it, when it arrives. I will. And I will gush over it, insisting everyone else get themselves a copy too. I’m going to read this again and again. I’m going to remember to live life to the fullest. I’m going to remember that I have people in my life that care about me. I’m going to remember that I will not die alone. I am immensely grateful to Forge Books for my digital review copy through NetGalley. All opinions are my own. I Will Not Die Alone will be out November 2, 2021.

    3.5 Stars Find all my reviews at https://www.urlphantomhive.com I saw a giraffe on the cover, and decided I just had to read this, so I was going in not sure whether to expect a story or a collection of short comics. It turned out to be a combination of both! The first part has cute drawings of animals with small accompanying text some of which I am sure could make their way to mugs or shirts. Around halfway, the book takes a turn and it suddenly becomes clear how everything is loosely related. 3.5 Stars Find all my reviews at https://www.urlphantomhive.com I saw a giraffe on the cover, and decided I just had to read this, so I was going in not sure whether to expect a story or a collection of short comics.

Around halfway, the book takes a turn and it suddenly becomes clear how everything is loosely related. While I liked it, and it became surprisingly touching by the end, I still hesitate to really call it a story.

    Thank you to NetGalley and Macmillan-Tor/Forge for an advanced electronic copy of this book in exchange for an honest review! In this beautifully (and hilariously) illustrated story, we find animals being faced with the end of the world. Their statements about stopping to recognize different feelings and experiences read like affirmations, and I found them to be really heartwarming. This is a fast read, but the kind of book you leave on the table to revisit often. Love it!

    This was a huge disappointment. It's a poorly written self-help book that is hidden under the guise of graphic novels. The drawings did not impress me. I don't see any creativity or uniqueness. Instagram has so many accounts that do better things in illustration, storytelling, etc. And of course, we have all that positive and inspiring affirmation that are supposed to lift our spirits and whatnot. So boring and cliche they were. I rather prefer reading proper psychological books written by profess This was a huge disappointment.

    Usually when reading graphic novels from NetGalley, my expectations are relatively low. But this one… woah! This is perfect for daily affirmations or just little constant reminders, the texts were simple but meaningful and relatable and the illustrations so beautiful and funny. Favorite graphic novel of the year? Yeah, definitely. thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

    This book contains no humans yet captures what it is to be one. It captures all the high moments, quirks, annoyances, "flaws", and perfections that make us the creatures we are while the whole time acknowledging our mortality. Each page reads like an affirmation and many of these will become those for my day-to-day life. Laughter, tears, and pangs of understanding are to be expected when reading this lovely book.

    A charming and encouraging book that ultimately reminds you life is short. You are likely to get out of this what you put into it. Sure, you can flip through it in 10 minutes, but the point is to slow down and absorb what's around you. This books is perhaps best summed up by "do your best; forget the rest."

    Thank you to NetGalley for an ARC of I Will Not Die Alone. I made the silly assumption that this was going to be a self help graphic novel about believing in yourself and taking chances and risks. But, as I got to the end, I realized it was not what I thought it was; there's a dark, apocalyptic surprise I really appreciated. The art is beautiful, goofy but in a good way, highlighting unique characteristics we all possess as humans except in the stunning diversity of the animal world.

The affirmations are nothing new, we've heard them all before, but in the context of a cataclysmic event, they take on a whole new meaning. This is like a dark comedy short film; thoughtful, sweet and positive despite how it ends. The last panel is hilarious.

    "I will not die alone." "This is a work of fiction." Hmmm – conflicting messages there, and that's before the actual numbered pages of content. And anyway, the fiction is mostly in the artwork – full cartoons per page showing an animal living as it wants – the cat on the couch, remote stuffed down what looks like a nappy; the anteater nurturing some ants as payback for past sins; the panda learning to love turmeric.

That is, until the scientist amongst them finds Armageddon is coming from outer space, and we'd better bloody make peace with our lot. But as the script has been one self-help platitude per page, they're pretty much in the right mindset for doing just that. Think of this as a pastiche self-help book, in that the bigger picture is always beyond what any kind of help can deal with, or see it as affirming (along the lines of Flaming Lips song lyrics about everyone carking it). Despite the multitude of small plots, as the animals change from Before to After, from Then to Now, all I will think of it as is one of those disposable gift books, read once and reluctantly kept on the shelf in case the gifter should make a house visit in the future. It was fine, in a way, but not something whose purchase I could honestly recommend.

The title might otherwise suggest a certain atmosphere, but I do think that an emphasis has been given for this to be more empowering than anything. Of course, the undertone the affirmations wanted to address was something of the sadder counterpart yet that didn’t shave off the wonderful message of love and compassion within the words. In addition, I would like to point out that if you are looking for a graphic novel or sequential art that adheres to our expectation of what the medium would be before we pick a book out…this book is nothing like that. I Will Not Die alone offers a unique art with beautiful and vibrant colours per page and these pages consists of not more than 2 short sentences. More than anything, this book is a collection of affirmations—of reminders to give love to others and to yourself, show compassion, and appreciate the small moments in life. I believe that you really have to have that sort of feeling and appreciation for simplicity when you read and finish this book. It’s both unadorned and complicated, mesmerizing and bleak, but most importantly it’s a charming reminder of the beauty of a moment and the appreciation for the true joy life brings if we only learn to slow down or pause.

Some made me chuckle, and a few had me thinking. This is a book that one can pass around a book club to help people open up about where they see themselves in the collection. I would have liked more time with the characters, although the backstory and the background are quite clear from the panels themselves. Since the entire book is not that long, I cannot justify a longer review than this. The final panel was probably the best! It made me chuckle as I looked at it again while writing the review. I received an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.

    I Will Not Die Alone is basically a very short book full of affirmations, filled with charming illustrations of animals that are facing the end of the world first on their own, but by the end, together.

    Thank you NetGalley for allowing me to read this graphic novel for my honest review. This adorable quirky graphic novel is full of heart and soul. I feel it’s honestly relatable to everyone and you can’t help but smile at every page, at every animal. The artwork and captions are simple, showcasing that sometimes we all need to pump the breaks, breathe, and just enjoy the little things, every day.

    All I can say is WOW. I didn't expect this short graphic novel to give me so many emotions. It only takes a few minutes to read but it takes you on a journey! I won't be saying anything else because everything feels like a spoiler, just read it if you want to think about human connection and how fragile love is.

    I'm in a doctoral program in clinical psychology and my wife bought this as office decor for me. I read it on my first day back at clinic after an onboarding session that amounted to "we're all going to get it" and decided to crack it open to ease my mind. Witty, quick, and emotionally complex, I think this little book's message will be my affirmation through this next episode of the pandemic.

    Ouch. From the way this book started I didn't expect it to hurt as much as it did. I really loved its message. I won't say more because I think it would spoil it, but it's a quick read so give it a try! Thanks Netgalley for the ARC! Ouch.

    This graphic novel was definitely heartwarming and gave me motivation to be a better me in the long run!
