Bad Choices Make Good Stories is told by a German hacker named Oliver and growing up and breaking all sorts of laws and then meeting a girl in New York and ending up moving there to be with her.
The book is supposed to be based on true events, but it really seems that a lot of the stories are embellished to create more dramatic and better stories. I don’t see how one person could truly get in that much trouble and sticky situations!
After getting past the point where I decided the book was a bit fabricated, it was still somewhat interesting, although I don’t think I will be reading any further books (I believe there is at least a second one)
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
