The only negative I have to comment is the fact that the Kindle version seriously needs to be looked at and reformatted. 65% of the time, when tapping on the selected choice, it takes us to an entirely different page in the book. No bueno.
Dark surprises await you - pick up a copy to keep smiling throughout the holiday season.
Choose Your Own Misery: The Holidays is just what you expect. Stranded because of a storm, you must choose how you want to spend Christmas (the title says holidays but you are celebrating Christmas). Do you want to spend Christmas with your girlfriend or try to salvage your trip? Do you want to be a nerd or do you want to hang out with the cool guy from your old workplace? Do you want to be paranoid or not paranoid (This actually comes up more than once. The you of this book is an extremely paranoid freak.) Each choice you make takes you down a path of worst case scenario and dark humor. Unlike the real holidays, this trip will leave you wanting more.
The only disappointing thing about Choose Your Own Misery: The Holidays is that you do not have a path that leads you to spending Christmas with your parents and extended family. Let’s face it, spending Christmas with your parents and extended family can be the most painful thing during the holiday season. It felt like a missed opportunity to really get at the heart of miserable holidays.
Overall, Choose Your Own Misery: The Holidays is an amusingly fun read. It combines the fun of Choose Your Own Adventure books of your childhood and the horrors of the holidays from your adulthood. Read it with some eggnog; you will need it.
I received this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
My favorite aspect of this series is that, much like life, your reward for completing an emotionally toxic experience is the opportunity to complete another arbitrarily chosen one, repeated endlessly until you give up.
