Embarrassing True Stories by Oliver Gaspirtz

22009452This book was a reminder of the embarrassing stories column in the magazine “Seventeen”. Back in my teenage years in the 90’s, this was THE magazine for us and most of the stories from this book looked like it could be read from that column. The collection of stories in this book came from a diverse group of people from all walks of life. What constitutes as embarrassing is subjective so I can’t say all the stories were funny but for the most part, they made me smile and I was grateful that it wasn’t me. The ones that weren’t all that funny were what I would constitute as awkward.

This book is a very light, easy and quick read that’s pretty enjoyable. I thought the cartoon drawings were the best part in this book though. They’re done quite well and I thought most were quite funny and entertaining!
