Format: Paperback
This is a collection of a series of one page autobiographical musings in comic strip form, originally published in Trondheim's French language online blog. As the title ("Little Nothings") suggests, the strips seem very slight at first, but thanks to having a hundred of them collected, they actually manage to gain some cummulative power and offer quite detailed insights into Trondheim's life. And he's just a regular confused guy, so don't worry, you'll most likely be able to relate. The book has stuff about family life, adopting cats, vacations, winning the grand prize at a comic con, playing with your childrens toy lightsaber, watching ER on tv, meeting strange people in the street, and lots of anxieties and paranoia about modern life. The artwork is quite beautiful, with lush watercolors. The book is pretty much essential for people who like down-to-earth autobiographical comics, and it will most likely still be a good read for everyone else. Recommended!

A nicely drawn visual diary, but unfortunately not very interesting or amusing. I'd recommend sticking to his brilliant fiction.

HASH(0x9dcb1b7c) out of 5 stars both simple and meaningfull 18 April 2008
By HS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I really did enjoy reading this. The title describes really well what's inside the book, that is day to day small events that make life. The small little things that we can enjoy (for example, the hunt of a rainbow by all the family when it's both raining and sunny.. who never did it? and when you read this you are like "this is SO TRUE" or "just like me when I was a kid!" or whatever). Enjoying the small things life offers that are not so meaningless as we could think.

At the same time it's interesting to be "into the head" of Trondheim (the author). It's not a biography like "this guy is born in ... he was thinking that.." or even "when I was a child..", it's simply illustrations of some thoughts he had.

I strongly recommended it, I wish I could find many more!!
HASH(0x9d5cb9d8) out of 5 stars Replete with oddities and observations 9 Jun. 2008
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
LITTLE NOTHINGS began as the author's near-daily blog and evolved to this collection of graphic cartoons about life, Lewis Trondheim's first collection. From poking fun at others to reflecting on the ironies and inconsistencies of life, LITTLE NOTHINGS is replete with oddities and observations, and is a fun pick.
