Book Description

13 Oct 2011

Misery Bear is the saddest, loneliest, drunkest bear in the world. Nothing ever goes his way, he hates his life and he's always one swig of whisky away from oblivion.

In Misery Bear's Guide to Love & Heartbreak, the furry critter shares his photos, stories, diary entries, poems, love letters, romantic recipes and doodles... All from the paw of a chronically depressed bear who just wants someone to love.

Product Description


'This is the best book I have ever read by a bear.' (Richard Curtis)

'A book about a depressed animal? How's that supposed to work then?' (Andy Riley, author of the Bunny Suicides)

'I've been told this may be worth looking at.' (Matt Berry)

'Since he has paws, Misery Bear won't be able to turn the pages of this book. You, being human, can. So why not try?' (Charlie Brooker)

'The most charming, amusing and melancholy bear in existence.' (Josie Long)

'I wish he would just grin and endure it.' (Peter Serafinowicz)

'This bear makes me want to self harm.' (Sharon Horgan)

'Misery Bear is one depressed little teddy. Despite having dated Kate Moss, the star of the BBC short films is unlucky in love. So, er, who better to produce a guide to love and dating? With tips on how to end a relationship, poems and even cocktail recipes, it's depressing but somehow endearing!' ***** (Star)

'Admirers of quality web comedy may already be aware of Misery Bear, the cute, fluffy teddy who combines serial failure in the world of romance with non-stop heavy drinking. Misery's now branching sombrely out into the world of literature with a Christmas picture book that's sure to delight his growing number of fans. With features including the bear's own Twitter and Facebook pages, it's sure to strike a plangent minor chord with anyone who's been unlucky in love.' (Guardian Guide)

Book Description

Misery Bear is the world's loneliest, most depressed and pathetic teddy bear (with a million online hits), just looking for love.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly funny and utterly cute! 13 Oct 2011
Just received my copy of 'Misery Bear's Guide to Love and Heartbreak' and I'm really chuffed with it! I've been a huge fan of this unlucky little teddy bear for a few years now and he just gets better & better. This book is just as funny as the short films I've seen and I was really glad that the writers haven't just published a whole book of storyboards (there are only a couple of these), but have come up with some really unique and witty ideas. The poems, the little cartoons and the cocktail recipes were my fave bits, although the little doodles over every page are ridiculously cute! :)
I love this book and I think it would make a perfect prezzie for any Misery Bear fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars My only joy is a cuddly toy... 16 Oct 2011
By D. King
A funny and thought-provoking study of loneliness and loss... as told through the eyes of a stuffed animal. Essential reading for single bears and a great coffee table (bog) book for the rest of us. Also, it's a breath of fresh air at a time when success and winning are the only measures of success. Splendid therapy for the downtrodden and dispossessed and a great stocking-filler for all those who've not got anything (or anyone) more interesting to fill their stockings for them!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! 14 Oct 2011
By S. Leek
Just got my pre-ordered copy and it's even better than I had hoped. A really neat book packed with loads of funny photos, miserable anecdotes and amusing Misery Bear tips. It's been cleverly put together and whilst it's perfect for his fans, I'd also recommend it for those who've not yet discovered this miserable little sod. If you like the idea of a depressed, drunk, bored and unlucky in love bear who's just trying to get through his miserable existance, then I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Misery Bear's book 16 Jan 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I bought this book for my wife as a Christmas present. After reading it, she found it so sad that she cried all Christmas Day afternoon. Since then, she has taken to buying any teddy bear that looks remotely like misery bear and to try to make it happy sleeps with them in our bed. There are now so many bears in the bed that I have to sleep on the sofa. Thanks misery bear, you *******.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but could be better 18 Dec 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I have greatly enjoyed the Misery Bear website and short films, so when the book came out, I thought it would be really good. There is definitely entertainment value: some parts of this book are laugh-out-loud, and some parts are so true-to-life, they make you squirm - but that's part of the charm of Misery Bear, because we can all relate to his bad luck and heartbreak. But unfortunately, too much is just a rehash of what happens in the films, which would be OK if the book was longer, because it would then put everything in the Misery Bear context that we know and love. However, it's a quick read, so it's quite a disappointment to see the same jokes recycled in book form; it makes the writers seem lazy. Overall, a bit of fun and wry observation, but the lack of new material is the main reason for my low score.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book! Buy it now 18 Oct 2011
This is a laugh out loud/tragic account of a bear with a broken heart. Its eponymous hero, Misery Bear has suffered every indignity possible in the romantic arena - jilted at the altar, cheated upon, stalked by a supermodel, but more often than not simply ignored. His little soul still throbs in hope though and there are some devastatingly accurate observations about the rocky road to romance. I defy anyone with a pulse not to shed a couple of tears and feel an urgent need to hug him and take him home. However, buying this book is the next best thing and will help him have a happier Christmas this year as even Santa has forgotten about him. Very funny, very moving and lovely book. Well done, you clever old bear!

Eh, this book was pretty disappointing. It has certain funny parts, but it was a bit of a rip off and nowhere near as funny as Misery Bear on TV
