It's not hard to see why people like this book. After all we're a country that loves its reality TV. And that's what this is, in book form. It reminded me both of Was She Pretty? and PostSecret Extraordinary Confessions from Ordinary Lives, both of which I enjoyed more. I found it very hard to read, especially in terms of deciphering handwriting and making sense of snippets of text and poorly written pieces. It has the feel of something that should be quickly read, but is too dense to breeze through. If you're looking for a window into other people's lives, I'd say go with PostSecret instead, unless you have a lot of time on your hands, a desire to read a lot about sex and junkies and an ability to read chicken-scratch.
