Awkward Family Photos *review*
About this Book
Based on the hit website, AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com (“painful, regrettable, horrifyingly awesome snaps of family bonding, you will laugh so hard that people in adjoining offices will ask what’s wrong with you”—Esquire), this full color book features never-before-seen photos and hilarious personal stories covering everything from uncomfortable moments with relatives, teen angst, sibling rivalry, and family vacations from hell. Cringe at the forced poses, bad hair, and matching outfits--all prompting us to look at our own families and celebrate the fact that we're not alone. Nothing says awkward better than an uncomfortable family photograph!
Awkward Family Photos is oh so very funny! I loved looking at all the hilarious photos and reading the descriptions and stories. Looking at the way people dressed and even the poses in the pictures is like taking a walk back through your childhood. The book is full of classic photos - it is like celebrating our geekiness. :) The book is a take-off of the website www.awkwardfamilyphotos.com but there is a LOT in the book that I didn't see on the website.
The book is family friendly- no swear words or nudity or anything. Just fun.
If you are looking for some more humour in your life than pick up a copy of Awkward Family Photos. This book would make a fabulous father's day gift!!
Thanks so much to RandomHouse.ca for sending me a review copy of this book.
