More About the Author

Belle de Jour rose to prominence with her award winning blog about her life as a London call girl. Her diaries, The Intimate Adventures of a London Call Girl and The Further Adventures of a London Call Girl, have both been bestsellers and adapted for a hit TV series starring Billie Piper.
After six years of anonymity, Belle de Jour revealed her true identity in November 2009 as that of research scientist Dr Brooke Magnanti.

I must be honest and say that although I bought this as a gift for a friend I just couldn't resist reading it first - just out of curiosity you understand!

The book is not at all pornographic but well written, humorous, and entertaining. If you watched the TV series starring Billie Piper you will see precisely where the storylines originated.To fully appreciate the book you really need to Google the author to discover her reasons for being a call girl and her life since - maybe one day the subject of another book.

On a chilly winter evening with a glass of wine and a good fire most men will find this book titillating whilst their wives or girlfriends will, at first, dismiss it as "porn" but then avidly read it from cover to cover!

I have been watching Secret Diary here in the US since it came on the air and couldn't wait to read Belle's book. It isn't available in the United States so ordered it from Amazon UK and I'm so glad I did. I wasn't sure what to expect after reading different reviews and watching the television show, but I was pleasantly surprised. There's no denying this book is extremely sexual, but Belle also adds a look into her own life outside of prostitution. She's honest about her life and that honesty is what makes her book appeal to the average woman. Great read, going to order her other book as soon as I can.

Loved this book, thought Belle's perspective was frank, honest & refreshing. She doesn't sugar coat things when describing what clients have asked her for. I literally could not put it down as soon as it arrived, it was extremely addictive!
I did love the book however I sometimes got a little bored with Belle's everyday life & felt the book should perhaps have been more about her work rather than the majority being about her private life, don't get me wrong I enjoied reading about her relationship with 'the boy' & 'N' but the holiday chapter was quite boring to be perfectly honest & I found myself struggling to avoid skipping it. All in all though thats the only fault I found, well that and a few typos/errors that had clearly been overlooked in the publishing. But none-the-less brilliant book, highly entertaining, laugh out loud moments, cringe worthy moments & often quite heart felt moments. Great book, buy it & read it over & over again...I have! Buying the sequel now.

Format: Paperback
Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed (most of) the book, but having recently read the blog archives, I didn't read much in the book that was new. If you've read the blog, then personally I don't think it's worth the extra money, if you've only watched the show, then you might enjoy it, but as earlier reviewers have said, some of it is a bit more 'hardcore' than what you saw Billie Piper doing on TV.

Great book. Arrived in perfect condition. The style that this book has been written in is a little unconventional which some people may or may not like; for me this was not an issue. I read the book fast and for me it didn't drag; sometimes it was a little explicit however that is to be expected from this particular book. If your a fan of the TV series its worth a read!!

This book is remarkably easy to read whilst keeping the reader interested in what the author has to say. Whilst it is nothing spectacular I would certainly recommend to other readers who are interested in such taboo subjects as sex and prostitution in the sense that it teaches you about a previously little-known point of view.

When I first began reading this book I was a little shocked at how explicit it was, but very soon I couldn't turn the page quickly enough; it felt like I was taking a sneaky look into a good friend's journal and after a few pages I began to feel as though Belle is someone I know well. She writes with great humour and her tongue in cheek style reads in an endearing Brigitte Jones' Diary kind of way. A great read, very enjoyable, light-hearted and compelling.

I loved watching the series of Secret Diary of a Call Girl and so I wanted to read about how it all began. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed. I found the book very difficult to read, and although it's a diary account, it had no sense of consistency or plot line; and so you find yourself a bit confused at times. I can't quite understand how this book was turned into a TV series, the scriptwriters of the series must be genius' to write a script from something so dull and monotonous! I thought "Belle de Jour" was very unlikeable. She didn't seem to possess a single redeeming quality. Although I neither agree or disagree with prostitution (each one to their own) she seemed to consider herself to be an untouchable goddess that was invincible, and she gave no indication of what she would do when she was all old and full of wrinkles. She tried to make it seem like a swanky life, but her undertones made you feel sorry for her, in the sense that she was trapped "waiting for a better job" that would never come, and none of the men she saw would be there for her in the end. The book gives you the impression that when you read it you will be enlightened and condone what she's doing, but really all it does is leave you thinking "what a sad life she leads".
