    1. At sixteen, Austin in some ways is a pretty typical teenager He puts in his time at school, he has his pals, and he dabbles in some extracurriculars that could be construed as illegal He s also really into music In fact, he has scores and scores of half written songs The problem is that he just can t quite finish any of them.This is a metaphor of sorts for Austin He s half formed, and, in many ways, he s remarkably uninterested in becoming fully formed Maturation requires a certain amount of rea [...]


    2. I am not one hundred percent sure I would have read this book if it hadn t have been for a review I d read that praised it Having finished it, I m a little sad to say I stand by that opinion, though my 2 stars is of a 2.75 really.I didn t like Austin at the beginning, I really didn t I thought he was foolish, another weed smoking idiot who didn t take anything seriously and in doing so often ruined the experiences of others He didn t care what happened or who he hurt and his apathy was just as [...]


    3. Austin s antics had me laughing and fuming Also crying a little bit.He doesn t get everything in the end, but he is a better person, and I believe the author made the right but tough decisions Because mostly Yeah, Austin s decisions were bad They cost Great book.


    4. 3.5 Stars.Austin Methune is the worst and he knows it Not even self deprecatingly He makes bad decision after bad decision and never seems to understand that there are consequences and for that I hated him and I thought I was going to hate the book but I didn t What I loved about the book was the writing is well done so kudos to Michael Rubens There are some really great zingers in the book and I LOL d a lot especially in the last few chapters I loved Josephine too She just was a really great ch [...]



    5. Austin s life gets turned upside down when the father that he s always thought was dead is actually alive and is a well known musician Austin is also a musician and has also made some bad decisions, but they seem to be getting worse as he struggles with this new knowledge and dealing with his mom s serious boyfriend.Steer to high school due to language, smoking drugs alcohol, and situations Writing is a bit predictable and pedantic.


    6. I liked Austin He was a bit of an idiot at times, but what teen boy isn t Underneath he has a good heart and is doing his best to come to grips with a dad he never knew he had turning up, a girlfriend and all the other worries a young man has The adults here are not reliable and often not good role models, but I like that they haven t just been written off as hopeless We, like Austin, can see their flaws, but also see that they re trying, doing the best they can, just like Austin is and, like Au [...]


    7. I won an ARC of this book via a giveaway, and I m really glad that I did, because I m pretty sure I wouldn t have found it on my own It was such a fun read funny and quirky and interesting and realistic without getting all dark and edgeville The tone and voice of the book are both so great it feels like you really get to know the main character I definitely recommend checking it out when it comes out this fall


    8. Extremely cliche, but Austin, the main character, actually has to pay the price for his screwups and get his shit together in the end which is refreshing to see in an underdog story His antics were a bit frustrating at times why can t he just explain to his mother or friends what s going on Why does he have such a difficult time making common sense decisions A lot of fluff, but still an entertaining beach read.



    9. Austin Methune is your classic sixteen year old screw up Failing math, smoking weed and generally making every bad decision possible, Austin is about to have the summer of his life Through one comedic misadventure after another Austin comes to meet his father for the first time, falls in love with brainy Josephine and forms a band and a friendship with his longtime tormentor, Todd Austin, who was told at an early age by his mother that his father had died, suddenly meets the man only to find out [...]


    10. Oh, Austin, you are a hilarious disaster and I love you You re gonna be okay Austin s lived his whole life without a dad and has been raised by his hard working, loving, funny, sometimes messed up mom Mom would never tell Austin anything about his dad except that he was an asshole Judging by Austin s talent for writing and playing music he doesn t quite have the performing thing down, yet , his dad must have had some musical talent uh, you could say that Mom is now in a serious relationship with [...]


    11. Ich w rde es echt gerne m gen Wenn der Protagonist aber ab Seite 1 durchgehend der gr te, verantwortungsloseste, beschr nkteste, r cksichtsloseste und d mmste Idiot ist, macht das auch der superwitzige, lockere Schreibstil nicht mehr wett Der Titel trifft den Inhalt ziemlich gut Bei jeder Entscheidung, die Austin trifft, wollte ich mir einfach nur die H nde vor s Gesicht schlagen und davonlaufen Wenn man es denn Entscheidungen nennen kann eigentlich folgt er nur seinen ADHS gesteuerten Impulsen [...]


    12. Austin s character was very isolated and I could not connect with him He was a little too far away for my reach He was a horrible friend and as much as he knew it, he did not want to change He did not realize that there are consequences for your actions, and he wanted to grow up too fast I also did not enjoy the amount of romance I felt that some of the scenes were a little too detailed, and steered away the focus The inspiration piece of the story is the difference of dreams and reality Sometim [...]


    13. Austin Methune loves music and wants to be a big star It turns out that his father whom was presumed dead, already is a big star and Austin is a lot like him He does drugs, gets into trouble and drops out of school The book is supposed to be funny but is told in a frenetic pace using mostly dialog and rarely has any feeling or even plot It s keeps running until it finally ends Austin s mom says Give me the goddam phone and when he refuses, she tells him not to talk to her like that I get to read [...]


    14. I really love YA novels from the point of view of a boy, this time an at sea, girl crazy boy whose life is one bad behavior decision after another The product of a now D list rock star and an alcoholic mother who is trying, yes really trying to survive and make her life better Austin Methune doesn t know his father, has to deal with jock bullies, and pretty much avoids formal learning as much as he can But oh, can he sing and play guitar, which is what he wants to do in the future despite everyo [...]


    15. I loved this book way than I thought I would Austin is a mess One of his teacher s calls him a smartard As a teacher I knew exactly what she meant He keeps sabotaging himself He s musically talented, but won t perform in front of people When his father shows up surprise he s a musician, but has never been there for Austin, and doesn t know him What ensues is a chaotic time of bonding, playing music, getting the girl, disappointment, and reality checks This was funny, heartbreaking and hopeful I [...]


    16. Started okay, but then went downhill, especially from the second half of the book A lot of the things could ve been cut off since they in no way contribute to the character arcs Speaking of which no one, except for Todd, had character development and the only reason Todd got one was because it pushed the plot forward The book does have its moments, but overall I wasn t really impressed I had no expectations a priori, but the first few chapters did make me think I d like this than I did.


    17. Austin is a flawed character who does flawed things None of it is malicious, none of it is completely unforgivable, and all of it is something I could totally see someone his age, facing similar problems, doing I love that there was a huge amount of growth shown both by the main character and a few of the supporting characters, and I love that nothing is completely wrapped up in a tidy little bow There is no HEA, but there is hope for growth and change Really, a great story.


    18. The books title maybe deceiving, but overall it was a great book to read In this book there is a boy named Austin who is a 16 years old who smokes, drives, and like this talk to girls Austin feels that his Mom shouldn t be dating this lawyer named Rick since he is like the perfect guy One day during the dinner time there was a knock at the door, so Austin went to go get it he suddenly realized it was the great musician Shane and then came Austins mom he hitting that man because it was Austins re [...]


    19. Wow I have never read a book that has touched my life so much None of the events in the book happened to me in real life but it showed me that not everyone gets a happy ending This is probably one of the only books where the protagonist did not get the girl and the fame and the happy ending but had both of those things leave him Honestly my favorite book ever.


    20. I enjoyed this book much than I thought I would, even though it told a different story than I thought it would tell Austin s voice is unique, dramatic, hilarious, and entirely believable Really, I think his voice sold me on the book than any other part though Tom s story line really touched me, too Now I want to go listen to some good music.


    21. Wundersch n Ein Buch das sich echt angef hlt hat Es l uft eben nicht alles perfekt im Leben und das hat dieses Buch drastisch und doch bezaubernd gezeigt Ein sehr gutes Jugendbuch, und ab heute eines meiner Liebsten.



    22. Meet Austin, a 17 year old teenage boy, who keeps making bad choices and decisions Along the way, he does learn some lessons.


    23. Being by someone who I don t recognize as an author it s pretty good The book is very relatable and fun to read.


    24. Good story for high school readers about finding your strengths and living with the failings of family Full of music and humor.



    25. The dialogue was hilarious I laughed hysterically during the lawn mowing disaster scene Great story, just a tad sad at the end.


    26. Did not finish.Trying to read The Bad Decisions Playlist was like trying to watch Idiocracy while stone cold sober I just couldn t stomach it, no matter HOW much I wanted to do so After all, I d heard this book was hilarious and witty and all the good things During the brief period I was inside Austin s head, I felt my IQ slipping by increments He was SO frustrating and sowell, so stupid that I wanted to repeatedly slap him with his own story hardcover edition, of course all the while assuring h [...]
