Everyone’s a Critic

Yelp reviewers are notoriously harsh in their reviews of anything, any service, or any place. The service industry is terrified of receiving a bad review posted on Yelp which could drive their business into the ground. Surely no one would expect Yelp reviewers to verbally trash our national parks. Well, they did and illustrator/designer Amber Share found these reviews hilarious. So hilarious that they motivated her to put pencil to paper and visually captured these shallow reviews of breathtaking places like the Grand Canyon, Yosemite, Yellowstone, and Glacier National Park. The collection: “Subpar Parks” launched on Instagram, and this July, it will become available in hardcover. You can preorder Subpar Parks: America’s Most Extraordinary National Parks and their Least Impressed Visitors. Or visit subparparks on Instagram and you’ll be impressed by the astounding locations along with their astoundingly moronic Yelp reviews.
