2.5 stars-- If you're going to confess something, the anonymity of the Internet might be your best bet. The confessions here range from sad, to funny, to bizarre, to obviously fake (or at least I hope).

There is an overabundance of teenage angst in this collection...the kids who were bullied made me sad, and those who tried way too hard to seem "tough" or "freaky" made me roll my eyes.

One post in particular was memorable in a disturbing way. It was from a young woman racked with guilt after hav

I read this, having met Gabriel, and also as market research in thinking about apps like Secret, Whisper, and the like.

It was a lot more engaging than I thought it would be, and had about 10 lols.

A collection of people's darkest secrets will only prove what you already suspected: we are all depraved, weird, and beautifully flawed human beings.

Grouphug.us is now closed, which is good and bad. The bad is it is gone! The good, is that the site posts had been reduced to childish people insulting each other, they were using is like a chat room almost, which is not at all what it was for. Surely this book captured some of the funniest ones. I cried I laughed so hard at some of them. I wish I could find another such book.

Ultimately, the shortcomings of this book are, as you'd expect, the same as those of the website. For every entertaining, funny, or moving confession, there are pages of repetitive ones. And, of course, admissions from anonymous narcissists (a bizarre phenomenon, but one that has become fairly common on the web).

some of these make you feel less crazy and more real? i don't know. PEOPLE ARE INSANE. and i love grouphug.us. but then again, it kind of makes you feel sorry for the human race in its entirety. these were fun to read aloud to friends over lunches and dinners.

Fun to read for about 5 minutes and then it just sat on my shelf forever until I forgot about it. It's fun to open up once in awhile and read a confession but not a sustainable source of entertainment... Some of the confessions seem hokey and/or fake.

Confession, pretty straight forward stuff. Most are most likely genuine, definitely some trolls in there though.
Christina
This was recommended from Amazon when I bought the "Found" books, so I jumped. I love the idea of the Web site from which this collection was born, but I found the decisions as to what to include sometimes trivial/childish.

Basically a Post Secret without the artwork. It took me a while to pick it back up after I originally started it, but I ended up reading the majority of it in two days.
Caty
Makes you feel better about yourself by listing a whole panopoly of sins committed by the anonymous contributors to gtouphug.us.
Becky
Unbelievable. Some confessions were so bad, that I had to continue to read... they closed the website September 7...
Kira
I could not stop laughing. And I was shocked for the most part. Makes me feel better about all my sins..
Erik
This is a collection of confessions, mostly short. Great bathroom reading.
Slavi
Straight from the website, but a great washroom read.

I will never again think about toothpaste the same way.

grouphug.us is better as a website than an anthology.
