review 1: Picked up this book immediately after reading Prozac Nation and I'm glad I did. What a great read! Honest and refreshing, this gave a clear view of how people with OCD go through life on a daily basis. Unlike most memoirs recounting a life of mental illness, Sher did it in a light and humurous way. Amen, Amen, Amen is very deep and personal but is insightful, inspiring, beautifully written. It doesn't overwhelm, it does not alienate "outsiders"; it doesn't pull you in a hole of darkness. Simply put, this is a tale about a girl who used praying as a weapon to face her different battles in life, and coming out the winner.
review 2: My coworker lent me this book because she knew I would find a memoir about obsessive compulsive disorder too good to turn down. The
... moreauthor did a good job chronicling her journey into her OCD life. I guess I was looking for a train wreck but with medication and the help of some strong people who loved her, she was able to lead a functional and productive life so this is more a book celebrating the success of overcoming the disorder. So, I guess I was slightly disappointed I did not see more of a life ruined by OCD, which makes me sound horrible but I'm being honest. less
