The title is very interesting. It is said that life needs to be lived in a way that you will feel embarrassed telling anyone about it, but feel very happy remembering it. So, yes, sometimes our bad choices give us the best experiences of our lives.

the sense that it is a writer's experience has drawn my attention to reading it because it gives the chance to see reality in the society we live in. I like the review it is pretty awesome. otherwise, the language used is tolerable and funny and increases the pressure on reading the book.

A teenage German hacker comes to America for love and goes through a series of jobs, then falls in love via the hacking world sounds interesting. However, I don't enjoy strong negative reads with unsavory/immoral words and actions, so I will pass on this one. But, I'm glad that you enjoyed the read!

Post by TheWriteAngel » 17 Oct 2017, 07:21

A dark story of love and adventure between two internet hackers set in the 90s, this book seems like an interesting read. The 90s setting alone makes it a challenging story to write since the technology was way different than it is now. Good job on the review!

What a nice story. This kind of book is very easy to understand every details, very nice story . its ok if there is sensitive parts of the story because in the reality world it really happens. Now a days its natural and we dont mind about that becuase that story is base on true events. Thanks for the review
