Overview

Close your eyes and think of a phrase that describes the most horrible act that you can imagine. Search for that phrase on the internet, and a website called Amity will be in the top of the list. The regulars at Amity can help you learn about that horrible thing. If you desire, can help you find it. Or help you do it.

Reclusive neckbeard Timothy Berbee has exiled himself from the world, and spends his time to huddled with the reckless population of Amity. When they turn their collective poison on him, his life turns into a battle to reconnect with his lost humanity, and a race against his own apathy to save the life of a stranger.

In a satirical whirlwind story based on real-world events, AMITY explores the allure of online lives and the downward spiral when absolute anonymity overrides one's moral compass.

    The last third had me absolutely glued to my seat until I was done.

    Nothing supernatural going on here--it's not that kind of horror. Instead, Brooks thoroughly horrifies you with real life dark things. It's pretty fast pace, which I like. Even still, I took my time reading the first two thirds of it. The last third, though, had me glued to my seat--read that in one sitting. Thrilling and horrifying, with a satisfying ending. Even some humor in there too--the sorta guilty fun kind, where you laugh and shake your head. A quick read if you choose not to go at it slowly, like I did at first, partly because a large portion is in chatroom-speak, also something I really enjoyed. I look forward to reading more from Brooks.

    Original and well written...though not for the faint of heart

    WARNING!! If you are sensitive and squeamish to sexually deviant material, this is not the book for you!!! No, it is not pornographic and no, it is not a book about sex but it does contain references that could make a young girl blush (and quite possibly hurl)....definitely one to keep away from your grandma, your kids, your sweet, little old pastors wife and Oprahs book club.

    Having said that, I loved it! Amity has a unique plot that caught my attention within the first few pages and held it to the end. Jeremy has a smooth writing style that made this an easy read,despite the fact that this is a book of intelligence and wit geared somewhat towards the computer saavy. I am somewhat of a techno-tard but was still able to follow along easily and appreciate the computer nerd (and I say that fondly) humor that runs throughout.

    I have known a few "Timothy's" (the main character) in my life and feel a lot of readers will identify with him on one level or another or at the very least, make you think twice about that "creepy" guy you pass in the halls at work from time to time.

    This was a fun read and I found myself bummed when it ended. I hope to see more from jeremy d brooks soon!!
