A best of compilation taken from an internet site used to make anonymous confessions.
In this spirit I offer my own confession... I don't always pick 5 star books.

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

"Stoned, Naked, and Looking in My Neighbor's Window" is an earnest, oft-dark collection of anonymous secrets shared to "grouphug.us," a confessional internet board of yesteryear.

I remember pouring over this book, reading each and every confession from dozens of souls I'd never know (perhaps, however, we have met one or two of them before. We can never be sure!) And yet, there is a strange sort of comfort to read of others' own cringe-inducing memories. Some are humorous, and many are

This has always been a personal favorite. There is comedic and tragic confessions alike. Each one shows you the lives of other people, no matte how small the entry. People are weird.

About what youd expect from a book full of anonymous internet confessions. Some gave me a good laugh, others were boring and stereotypical

I love confessional books, this one is no exception. I laugh, cringe, and in the end, I feel better about myself. We are all crazy in our own ways.

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

Good book if you're an emotional voyeur (which I am).

Did not finish this book - but would have were life dull and boring. I gave my copy to a younger friend who has similar taste in humor and debauchery.

It was not all that captivating after several confessionals; it becomes somewhat repetitive in tone - one awkward admission after another. Another title might be, How to be Human, or, Everyone's An Idiot At Some Point.

A decent read to leave in the powder room.

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).

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.

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.

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.

Confession, pretty straight forward stuff. Most are most likely genuine, definitely some trolls in there though.

Unbelievable. Some confessions were so bad, that I had to continue to read... they closed the website September 7...

Makes you feel better about yourself by listing a whole panopoly of sins committed by the anonymous contributors to gtouphug.us.

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.

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