As Kaplan notes in the Introduction, “everything we do, we do for one of three reasons: because we love someone, because we hate someone, or because we’re hungry.” No one can argue with that, or anything else in this wickedly funny new collection.....

    "new yorker" readers, if they're honest, will tell you the bek toon is the first thing they look for in the magazine. in the world of toons there is no one better. it's all in the dialogue.

    I Love You, I Hate You, I’m Hungry is a collection of cartoons from New Yorker cartoonist Bruce Eric Kaplan. Most of the cartoons involve relationships. There’s wordplay and absurdity, but mostly there are just simple line drawings stating those things we only think about.These drawings, all single-paned, mostly with single-line “jokes,” remind me of popular sites like Postsecret, F*** My Life, My Life is Average, and of the Bunny Suicide books. They revel in saying the things we keep bottled inside. Sometimes it's cruel. Mostly it's hilarious, honest, and timely. They work on many levels. There is a lot of sadness in their truth, but isn't that what makes them so damn funny? Takes aim at our superficiality and our over-rationalizing oversensitivity. They are about how we distance ourselves, whether by corporate structure or social media. They were always surprising, laugh-out loud funny, and the number of them means that at least a few if not all of them will connect with readers.

    This book is wry. There are some pages that did make me laugh audibly, but there were more that drew an "I hear that."Both my husband and I enjoyed the book. To be honest, it takes fewer than 10 minutes to read so it's a great way to pad my reading goal a bit.

    I love the last comic on the back of the book: We thought it was a rough patch, but it turned out to be our life.

    Light(in a dark humor kind of way) and funny and now filled with little post-it strips for some of the cartoons I've just got to photocopy and put up on the wall!

    I gave this book a 3 out of 5 star rating because i felt that this book not a amazing book. The them of the book is that sometimes you need something or someone. Two examples of this is in his author's not and cartoons, The first example is when he is talking about the meaning of his book and he tells us what he means by I'm hungry, he tells us it is about attention or something we need emotionally or physically. The second example is in the cartoon when the lady is saying how she missed someone. I believed the author is saying that you need thing to survive life. One element that symbolizes this book is people saying that they're hungry after they just ate. This book is a small thing that shows us that there is more to life then what we can see.

    These single panel cartoons are edgy. There are several that I read and thought, "Well, I would never have said that out loud, but I have darn sure thought it before." Unsurprisingly sarcasm abounds in this collection. It was not the best collection I've ever read, but it was an amusing way to kill an hour or so.

    A collection of cartoons...good for a chuckle. The author's biography made me laugh out loud:"Bruce Eric Kaplan is somewhere in Los Angeles having problems with whatever his reality is at this moment."

    I've always wondered what it is that motivates us as humans. Now I know; love, hate, and hunger. Personally I think it's hunger 95% of the time and the other 5% is our need to poop.Funny stuff!

    Brilliantly witty collection of cartoons. You'll recognize Kaplan's work if you glance at the New Yorker now and then.
