I picked up How the Mistakes were Made thinking it was a mystery. It’s not, but it kind of feels like one! It’s the story of an uber-popular grunge band, The Mistakes (Nirvana era), how the three-some got together and subsequently fell apart. All told from the point of view of the woman who ruined the band: bassist/drummer Laura Loss.
Mystery-like elements include: Written in first person. Plays with time. Uses framing device to tell a story that happened in the past. Lets you know something bad happened. Oh, and something more bad happened! And even worse. There are fatal flaws.
Definitely worth reading. And I have to say – the book is written by Tyler McMahon. I assumed Tyler was one of those late 20, early 30-ish female writers with an androgynous name. Nope. He’s a guy and does an awesome job of telling the story from a woman’s POV.
