Reviewed by Deborah Lloyd for Readers' Favorite Amanda Loeb’s thirtieth birthday was coming soon, and it seemed (to her) that she had a difficult life. Saddled with a strong case of hypochondria, she spent many hours every week in doctors' appointments, trips to emergency rooms, undergoing medical tests and obtaining medications. On the other hand, she was an attorney in a large group practice and had many supportive friends and family members, although she provided many challenges within these relationships. She craved to be in a loving relationship but dated many men who were undesirable, for one reason or another. When she met a handsome neighbor, Brian Marshall, her life changed in dramatic, wonderful ways. In the romance comedy novel My Crazy (Sick) Love by Drica Pinotti, Manhattanite Amanda Loeb discovered how true love can enable the healing of a troubling affliction. This story has many funny situations, but these are tempered by the struggles of living with a mental disorder; hypochondria. Amanda was overwhelmed by her fears and her compulsiveness in keeping medical information and shelves of medications organized. Her character is well developed, and the reader will learn more about this disorder and how it affects those who suffer from it. Life in Manhattan for young, single adults is also well depicted. The author’s writing style is fast paced, as the story flows easily from one situation to the next – with many laughs along the way. Author Drica Pinotti has written an engaging and insightful novel in My Crazy (Sick) Love. This book is both informative and entertaining.
The book tells a story of a hypochondriac girl from NY who has several disastrous encounters as she seeks the love of her life. In the end she gets the most improbable and most charming guy ever. I want a Brian in my life too! Hahaha. What I liked about the book: It's funny and easy to read. The story is fantastic, the protagonist is wonderful, the author is hilarious! What I didn’t like: I read too fast! Can’t wait for her next book. For those who are not hypochondriac, and don’t know what it is or can’t relate it may seem like a boring book. A young woman who thinks she can die at any moment. Because she suffers from this problem her love life is chaotic. Nobody can handle someone who has a syncope every minute. On the other hand, those who know people who suffer from this disorder, will have a lot of fun. Drica Pinotti has a quick, clever and very comical narrative. It manages to give light to a subject that many people may find silly. Really enjoyed! Congratulations.
