These review is a better deal for the book. The language is open and depicts the reality of the life today. I love to continue reading this author's books.

Bad Choices Make Good Stories is a nice coming of age with dark humor and love. Has a hacker in it. A 4 of 4 star rating.

Thanks so much. I understand completely about the book not being for you.

tamdlyte wrote:Interesting how the "hacking" game has evolved. I still have friends who are of the "cracked games" days and still lament the almost nostalgic, innocent times of those days. It was about "taking down the man!" Now, it's about perusing the streets, down homey neighborhoods, taking down your cookie-selling, church-going neighbor who naively buys some stoopid doohicky on their no-antivirus, "4-key password" computer with a chipped credit card broadcasting private information to sell on the black market. Now, it truly does have a more "over the shoulder, knife in the back" sinister edge to it. I am likely to read this book simply to see how that aspect is handled.
Your description of the hacking evolution is spot on! I hope you enjoy the book!

Just remember it's about Oliver's "bad Choices," so if you don't think you'll make it through the darker parts of the book, it might not be for you.

Oct 17, 2017 Isabel rated it did not like it
I expected a decent read, but the book is badly written. I particularly did not like the author's superior attitude. The story is also not plausible, it's more like fiction. I gave up reading after first twenty pages. All in all, very disappointing.
