This is a short little book that imposes some of the things we humans are always saying on animals. It's an interesting concept. When Alaeff imposes some of the things that we say on to the animals, in a strange way, it sort of makes you realize how we often blow things out of proportion or turn a relatively minor thing into something massive and life changing. Very interesting This is a short little book that imposes some of the things we humans are always saying on animals.

A selection from I’ll Be Dead by the Time You Read This: The Existential Life of Animals by Romeo Alaeff. Animals clearly have a wide range of emotions, but it’s sad and sickly funny to imagine them having ones as insane as ours. So in the spirit of milking anthropomorphism, which has served us from before the earliest religions to Sesame Street, I started attributing the hundreds of human thoughts I wrote down over the years to these poor animals who don’t really deserve to be burdened with our existential angst and neuroses.

What if we knew what animals were thinking? If you've ever eavesdropped on people's conversations, had heart-to- hearts with friends or family, or even just paid attention to the thoughts bouncing around in your own head, you'll undoubtedly find that we humans have, well, issues.

I'm not sure what I expected, but this was a quirky, funny little book. I laughed out loud at some of the illustrations and quotes.

Not as funny or clever as others would have you believe. It really is just OK.

I'll Be Dead by the Time You Read This is a charming collection of animal pictures. However, those animal pictures have quotes that are essentially not animalistic. A lot of them are common things that people think when they feel like they need to fix themselves. The humor of these pictures, though, is that these negative sayings attached to animals seems to make human complaints almost absurd and ridiculous. A fun, quick read that is definitely a pick me up when one is down in the dumps about their existence.

I have nothing but good things to say about this book - it's funny in a strange kind of way, but what isn't strange nowadays? Not the mention the fact, the author of this book is my cousin, and I'm so frickin' proud of him!

The collection of vignettes muses over the absurdity and weight we give our own thoughts and words. In the vein of Creature Comforts and other works that superimpose complex human emotions onto animals, Alaeff provides perspective to our outlooks, inquires to their purpose, and perhaps makes us laugh or cry depending on our views. Alaeff's hand-drawn illustrations are meticulous, haunting and beautiful.

As someone who has lost a loved one to suicide I find this book to be in very poor taste.
