Thoughts: This book was a really fast and really funny read. I pretty much sat down and read the whole thing in an entire sitting.
The book is made up of different people’s short snippets about what they experienced. So many of them were so funny. I was laughing out loud quite a lot and at one point one of the stories had me laughing for about 10 minutes.
I really liked that some of the stories were from celebrities. Justin Halpern’s story had me in stiches, it was so hilarious.
Overall, I loved Awful First Dates, it was so funny and a nice quick read I would recommend it to those who love humorous non-fiction.
