Is AWS good choice for solo makers?

Even though AWS prices per services look quite straight forward, the overall price for most of the services is hard to estimate. From my research we don't only pay for the service X but also for any other complementary services necessary to provide X. I found interesting cost breakdown of serverless app . All the services looks cheap but the API Gateway costs are crazy high.    What are your experiences with AWS stack as a solo makers?  Is it cost effective comparing to VPS from DigitalOcean, Linode or should we stay away?  How much you pay for AWS, and what's included?    I think of popular services like using S3, CloudFront, Lambda, DynamoDB, SNS etc.
