Dearest Reader, I have made it my life’s mission to prove by example that even the ugliest of experiences can be transformed into things of extraordinary beauty Most notably, her family being dead when her mother and sisters are actually quite alive and well.

Real and painful but in the end, just make believe. You want to have more fun with this book? Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1. Where is suffer the bear too? And then there’s the misinformation and just plain stupidity. If I never hear or read the word stockings or come across another sycophantic Anglo-phile who lives for stereotype and playing pretend, I will be grateful. Some house of horrors. Her own story came from someone else’s. The first event of the psychological journal, that is presented in the form of a Neo-Victorian scrapbook, is when the character of Emilie based on the Author is interrupted during the process of attempting to commit suicide.

But I cannot make Drew forget about it. This book is amazing, even though it is far from perfect. And people wonder why no one believes this author’s story as “semi-biographical,” or the whole hospital visit being real and think it’s all a persona: I guess this is why the author has rewrote this book and republished it on so many occasions, because they realised just as I did that it was terrible. The story has been changed ALOT from the original.


However–the reason for that may lie in the fact that this book wasn’t actually written about just one hospital stay. She actually says this: Read more Read less. After I read the new version I will give a more complete review. She’s like Augustus Gloop when you take away his chocolate, hot damn. One thing I am sad to have lost is how truly personal EA went with the first edition.

Alsof Emilie Autumn een deadline moest halen en er maar een einde aan heeft geknoopt. Buy it, brew a cup of tea, and lose yourself.

Ridiculous is an understatement, dangerously stupid and naive best describes this book. All of her characters are dealing with their own particular demon s and Autumn conveys each with exquisite storytelling. Refresh and try again. If you’re curious about what I mean by that, do some sleuthing and you’ll figure it out.

Everyone and everything is against her and wants her to suffer.

It has taken me six months to finish this, it was so tedious, my seven year old sister isn’t this dramatic and infant like.

I spent it in a drugged sleep. Emilie Autumn moet je horen; niet lezen. The awful forced British accents for the Emily with Y story make your hair stand on end, but not in a good way, she needed training for this. Every girl in the asylum is beautifully characterized, and I am sure I will remember them for a very long time. I’ve tried to be polite, word my review nicely and be as honest as possible and can finish my review by saying I am very much pleased I didn’t get the audio book pre-order as a gift because it’s been two years, it’s not yet finished although money has been taken and I would have been greatly dissapointed.


We try to have empathy, but in the end those of us without it can never completely understand the suffering.

Apr 01, Emm – Stories for Ghouls rated it really liked it Shelves: Just a more polished presentation of her thoughts than what she had previously shown us online. She hopes that her future writings will not require such dramatic circumstances in order to be published.

Is this all part of the story or is it bad writing? I still love her music and I recommend that album especially.

This book is a story within a story. Plus as a lover of Ophelia I loved fot of the references to her through out.

Gifting of the Kindle edition at the Kindle MatchBook thw is not available. Sharp, head of the hospital’s psychiatry department. Pages to import images to Wikidata. You can say goodbye to empathy.

I love the asylm but not the era. She mostly hangs her hat on the aesthetics of it all, which she also simultaneously exalts and insults.

Of course I understand the point is that they’re “letters from another dimension” and I liked the effect that had as well.

She goes on a man-hating rant which is so freakin astonishing with its blatant prejudice that I had to take a drink. My only real issue with the hospital entries is that they too became small snippets of thoughts as the book went on, asylkm of actual depicting of life in the psych ward. He was a big part of her life This is completely random and makes no sense, but luckily never addressed again as a nurse returns to pick up her paperwork.
