Not the type of thing I normally read. My interest was piqued by reading about Amy in a book called Bitch:In Praise of Difficult Women. Amy was sent to prison for 5 to 15 years for shooting her lover's wife. He walked off scott free. She was 17, he was 35 years old, had an affair with her and got her into prostitution.

The Long Island Lolita. Just a really dumb kid who did a really stupid thing, that a stupid manipulative older man talked her into. Well, he talked her into doing alot of stupid things, but talking her into shooting his wife in the head was the worst.

Professional writer Sheila Weller interviewed the 18-year-old Amy Fisher while Fisher was behind bars in 1993 for an attempted murder she committed as a 17-year-old. Weller paints a sympathetic narrative of a high school girl who was manipulated into prostitution by a sociopathic man twice her age. This narrative may have been valid in 1993, but twenty years later, long since released from prison, Fisher continues to evince some highly questionable behavior of her own, and she is no longer a sym ...more

This is a cautionary tale for teenage girls who get involved with older men. Beware!

I was not actually interested in reading about Amy Fisher. The only reason I read this book is because I went to school with Joey Buttafuoco and his wife Mary Jo and was curious to read about them. I could never figure out why Mary Jo ever dated, let alone got married to Joey. They had nothing in common in high school. She was a typical nice girl cheerleader type and he was the kind of lazy sleazy guy who is int

I remember my grandpa bought this for me while we were on a Target outing once while I was in high school. I devoured this book in less than a day.

I read this book in three days. It was great, ha! If you need a book to read on an airplane or something, this is the one.

I'm glad I bought this book at Goodwill. It is a complete waste of money. I am not kidding when I say that I read only the first page and then skimmed the next few pages. What I got from this book is an obsessive account of her lover's activities and mentions of her life as a whore. I thought I might give the book a chance, I mean maybe there was things that everyone was unaware of when it comes to this case.With only me reading the first few pages however, I can see that this book is nothing bu ...more
