The Unfortunate Decisions of Dahlia Moss by Max Wirestone



Immediately, the author reveals her wit in this book. The first few pages where Dahlia describes her life are hilarious.

Here are a couple of my favorites:

 He said with a sparkle in his eye. The kind of sparkle you'd find on Santa's face. Or a mental patient's.
I don't mean that metaphorically - I fell off my chair. I didn't land on the floor because, legs - but to (be) perfectly clear: Ass left chair. 

This is not the type of book that I would usually read, but I'm glad I did!

Although I might not have been clued into some of the geeky humor in the book, it did not take away from the reading experience.

Also, with these types of stories, I am usually somewhat able to predict the outcome, and in this case, I was way off. (Yeah, I admit it.)

Also, I would like to note (mainly to the author, although I am not delusional and know that she will likely not see this) that I did, in fact, read the acknowledgements in their entirety, mainly out of pure curiousity and with no intent to plunder his fortune.

I really liked this book and would totally read another Dahlia story.

I received a copy of this book for free from the publishers via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
