My memoir, Fire, is my journey of self-definition and can be best summarized in words of the poet and writer Audre Lorde: "If I didn't define myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive." My struggle for self-definition was not optional either. If I had not faced who I was and acted on it, I could never have harnessed my creative fire a My memoir, Fire, is my journey of self-definition and can be best summarized in words of the poet and writer Audre Lorde: "If I didn't define myself, I would be crunched into other people's fantasies for me and eaten alive."

    Fire: A Memoir by Sharon Adams relates the author's life story beginning as the child of abusive parents and ending with the present. Parts of the book are heartfelt and affecting, but there are gaps in Sharon's story, especially with her adult life. The book does capture the feelings and fears of an abused child and the trials and tribulations of being a young girl on her own in the 1960's, but in describing her later year, Adams leaves out important details that would have led to a better unde Fire: A Memoir by Sharon Adams relates the author's life story beginning as the child of abusive parents and ending with the present. Parts of the book are heartfelt and affecting, but there are gaps in Sharon's story, especially with her adult life. The book does capture the feelings and fears of an abused child and the trials and tribulations of being a young girl on her own in the 1960's, but in describing her later year, Adams leaves out important details that would have led to a better understanding of her life. While the book is an attempt on the author's part to define her life and to explain who she is and how she arrived at her present destination, it somehow falls short. However, it is worth reading, especially the parts depicting her earlier life. This is Adams's first novel, and I feel that she has more to say and will expand on her life story in subsequent books.

    I wanted to like this book, I really did. Sharon has had a lot happen to her in her lifetime but i just felt that everything was flat. I couldn’t feel her emotions in the situations she encountered, and I know she was used to not showing emotion, but I don’t see that as a good quality in a book. I feel like I was being told things, not shown. I just was not a fan of this writing style. I prefer a more story-like memoir and this was just not at all to my standards.
