Summary

For nearly a decade, a novelist wrote gripping, scandalous, and often disturbing fiction using her life as a canvas and herself as the protagonist in a massive web of lies. In this revealing memoir by author Amy D. Brooks, the complex untruths told by the young woman to disguise a tragic mental state declining into drug addiction and alcoholism are deconstructed in shocking honesty. The confessions of a pathological liar who married a stranger, held jobs qualified for with phantom degrees, and found her way into national news and courtrooms alike as the result of her fictional personae are transcribed in this tale of the author's eccentric journey to sobriety, truth, and spiritual salvation.

Gripping

A very honest look at addiction and very compelling to listen to. Well written and painfully real. Loved it!

Don't waste your credit

What would have made My Name Is Amelia, and I'm a Sociopath better?

A good, professional writer.

What was most disappointing about Amy D. Brooks’s story?

It is unbelievably poorly written; some of the metaphors were laughable. In addition, the story was totally disconnected. Did this book have an editor? If so, they didn't do their job.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator spoke as if she were reading a grocery list - no enthusiasm, no joy, no sadness, no nothing.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. I was hoping for something interesting/riveting/educational.

Any additional comments?

Nope.
