This book was a good one time read for me, I can appreciate the freedom that the people who wrote the secrets felt after mailing them however it's killing me not to know the back story behind just a couple of them.

This is the ULTIMATE Coffee-table book. Just beware that not all secrets are ones you want to know about...

PostSecret is a compilation of postcards sent to Frank Warren anonymously. Sometimes frightening, sometimes sentimental, sometimes sad, always moving. Secrets brought into the light, albeit anonymously, may give the author hope of sharing again - out loud - to someone close. Secrets brought to light open windows to our souls and allow freedom to enter in. I know I could have submitted a number of these secrets myself. Maybe you will find this true as well. Thought provoking reading.

This is a great book! Some of the secrets were extremely disturbing, some were sad, and some were very funny, but I would bet that not a one is unique. I share several of the same secrets found in the book, in fact. Of course, I won't tell which ones!

The artwork on many of the postcards was intriguing, evocative, and perfectly-suited to the secret. The secrets were, however, far more often than not depressing or worrisome. While the writers of the secrets may have felt released by sending them off (and that fact is itself debatable), I felt weighed down by knowing their secrets. Additionally, I felt a little manipulated in that we have no way of knowing if the secrets are real or fiction -- did at least some of these writers create secrets in the hope of eliciting sadness and concern in the readers? We have no way of knowing and that ambiguity leads to my ambivalence.
