Pretty Little Mistakes: A Do-Over Novel Review

There are hundreds of lives sown inside Pretty Little Mistakes, Heather McElhatton's singularly spectacular, breathtakingly unique novel that has more than 150 possible endings. You may end up in an opulent mansion or homeless down by the river; happily married with your own corporation or alone and pecked to death by ducks in London; a Zen master in Japan or morbidly obese in a trailer park.

Is it destiny or decision that controls our fate? You can't change your past and start over from scratch in real life—but in Pretty Little Mistakes, you can! But be warned, choose wisely.

  • Bess

    This book is supposed to be a choose-your-own-adventure for grown-ups, which sounds fantastic in theory (who didn't love those books as kids?) except that it's totally substanceless, plotless, and rea...

    Updated Review 9/1/08:I originally gave this book three stars, but when I picked the book up last night and tried reading a few more "lives," I wanted to throw it away. I really like the idea of the b...

    I loved this book. It seems like just an adult themed choose your own adventure (or a handbook on how to screw up your life at times) but I think it actually becomes a commentary on the way we live ou...

    I ordinarily would not even consider writing a review for a book after only spending 1 1/2 hours with it, but I simply cannot wait to tell people about this book.Heather McElhatton, radio host, produc...

  • Fahmina

    I was hoping this choose-your-own-adventure book would be fun or at least funny, but no, it's not. Basically, the character in the book, who is supposed to be "you," is kind of a bad person. Either yo...
