The Blurb

Bad Choices Make Good Stories is a darkly funny coming-of-age novel based on true events. Oliver, a teenage hacker living in Germany, meets Donna online. She’s an American girl living in New York. After chatting and talking on the phone for months, he finally decides to surprise her with a visit. But he soon finds out that things are not what they appeared to be, and that this visit will change his life forever.

The Review

Oh boy.

It is hard to review this book when I kind of really disliked the protagonist. It is even harder to be impartial when the main character is a real life person. Sorry Oliver Markus Black.

Throughout the stories Markus Black seems to celebrate some the most seediest parts of his life and when things don’t necessarily go his way he paints himself as the victim.

His stories became tedious to read because they were so egocentric and I rapidly became bored with his vapid tales.

Bad Choices Make Good Stories may be the title of the book but it wasn’t that interesting to me.

Bad Choices Make Good Stories by Oliver Markus Malloy is available now.
