Lars the Yeti's body is a battleground, with his organs disagreeing on what he ought to do with his life. This cute comic depicts the eternal struggle between the heart full of desires and inspiration and the brain, which concentrates on practicalities. There is also a cast of secondary characters, including the eyes (which are sometimes bigger than the stomach); the irritable bowel; the tongue, who comes up with flimsy justifications to eat more sugar; and the poor unappreciated gallbladder who made some stones all by himself.

The gallbladder comics may particularly appeal to people who have had trouble with that particular organ. They almost made me feel sorry for mine even after all the trouble it gave me before getting the boot.

This is the second volume in the Heart and Brain series, based on the web comic by Nick Seluk. The first book was Heart and Brain: An Awkward Yeti Collection. Heart and Brain: Gut Instincts is a book for those with a quirky sense of humour. It's great for when you're in the mood for something less serious that's easy to dip in and out of during coffee breaks, or for when you need a bit of cheering up on a bad day.
