In late 2008, the world as most Americans knew it folded in on itself. The Great Recession began.For Amy Wolf, the author of "Don't Let Me Die In A Motel 6 or One Woman's Struggle Through The Great Recession," a memoir, nothing could have been more shocking. She had been enjoying the good life, with a well-paid position at Washington Mutual; she lived in a big house; had many advantages; and had always counted on being gainfully employed.Over the subsequent pages, we learn how the author dealt w [...]

I liked this book. A lot. Though I am far away from the writer on the political scale, her sense of rhythm, witty style, and engaging stories made me look forward to finding a few minutes in my busy schedule to sit down and keep reading. She is honest, I'll give her that. The book was entertaining and reads quickly. You will relate to her frustrations with the recession and outrage at the stuff fate throws at her during the lowest point in her life. For sheer entertainment this book deserves 5 s [...]

Started out funny, then I just wanted it to end quickly. Not the worst book ever written, but I found myself becoming more and more frustrated with the author. She was funny in the beginning of the book but as she kept telling her story, all I could think was, REALLY? I kept checking the % of book read on my Kindle, rushing to be done with this story. Amy Wolf is funny at times and tells her story without too many boring details but she does come across as whiny, entitled and really not too brig [...]

This woman has my complete sympathy. Not the author, her sister.One of my favorite books is TALES FROM THE COAST by Jim Blackview. He and his wife are Californians and have seen the West Coast economy soar and crash like a drunk sea gull. Their response was to buy a modest home, drive economy cars, get non-glamorous (but stable) jobs, and skip Starbucks. They'll never live in a mansion with horses or take a helicopter ride to see the sunrise on a glacier, but they're grateful for what they have [...]

You want no bulls★★T 'edge' about what it was REALLY like to survive The Second Great Recession? Maybe, with a healthy dose of 'your best high school girlfriend' humor; a pinch of pathos, and a few Hallelujah's thrown in? (Okay, so Jewish women don't cry out "Hallelujah") but if Amy Wolf would have added one or two - what the heck!? I would still want her to receive a line-up of ★★★★★ 5-star reviews for 'Don't Let Me Die in A Motel 6"No wonder this woman does stand-up [Comedy being [...]

This is a depressing, yet, darkly humorous, story of what happened to the author beginning in 2008 when she worked at WaMu. It was probably a good place for Ms. Wolf to work, as she seemed to practice a lot of the same hand-over-my-eyes, I-will-deal-with-it-later types of methodologies as her doomed company. It was funny, and well-written and error-free, but as far as content goes, I couldn't help think at least some of this stuff must be exaggerated. At least I would hope so. She has an adopted [...]

I downloaded this book from after reading the synopsis which guaranteed a funny, wild ride through Amy Wolf's financial struggles after the 2008 banking crash.Although there were a few clever quips during Wolf's narrative, I'm afraid I found most of the the humor flat since the subject matter is very dark and depressing.Believe me, losing her job and becoming homeless was the funniest thing that happened in this book! The lesser humorous story arcs include constant references to being mentally [...]

This book really drew me in. When I read the teaser on , I just had to continue. It's non-fiction - actually what you could call a memoir. Author Amy Wolf had more troubles than you could shake a stick at. She tells it all with a humorous flare. Of course, some of it is far from humorous. In fact, most of it is. (I did skip the sex chapter.) Her problems included loss of a good job, a dysfunctional husband, an adopted teen-age daughter who came with problems and near death from cancer drugs (and [...]

I suspect Amy Wolf's schtick comes across better live than it does in written form. I was mildly amused (and appalled) at first, but my sympathy rapidly dwindled as it became clear that not only was the author's misfortune the result of her own poor choices, she continued to make poor choices while complaining about her bad luck. The writing is technically fine but the story is structured poorly, and falls into the common trap of bad memoirs of telling everything, not just what would be interest [...]
