Quickie Review: Choose Your Own Misery: The Holidays by Mike MacDonald and Jilly Gagnon

If you read the "Choose Your Own Adventure" books, then you are familiar with the format of this book even though it is not from the same company. Each section of text is followed  by the presentation of two choices. In order to continue the plotline, you must choose one of them.

The premise, in this case, is the holidays. You are a single male who was hoping to skip the holidays this year on a tropical beach with your friend from college. But, the trip is canceled due to a hurricane. What do you do now? Where will you spend the holidays? Options vary greatly. Perhaps you will spend Christmas with your girlfriend and her family. Or maybe you will book another flight to another beach. The possibilities for the story seem endless.

This is a good, fun book. I like the interactive format. And it's well suited to the Kindle. When you click on your choice it takes  you directly to the next appropriate page. The humor in it is often on the dark side. I enjoyed playing with the different choices and miserable endings. I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

Choose Your Own Misery: The Holidays by Mike MacDonald and Jilly Gagnon is due out October 18, 2016 from Diversion Publishing.
