I read a lot of books but have not really delved into the 'tragic life stories' genre before, but Slave Girl caught my eye on the shelf and even though the subject matter is unpleasant I was really struck by the element of hope in the book. Sarah has been to hell and back but she survived to tell the tale. Other people in that situation would have accepted their fate and given up but she kept fighting and eventually escaped. I felt like I was with her every step of the way and respect and admire Sarah for her courage and resiliance.
I was shocked to discover that 70% of the prostitutes in Amsterdam's red light district are forced to work there by greedy gangsters. Sarah's voice needs to be heard so that tourists to that city know the misery that goes on behind those windows. The corrupt police should be named and shamed and a full investigation into the local government needs to be conducted so girls like Sarah shouldn't have to go through that ordeal ever again.

I read this book in a matter of hours. It was so compelling.
Being the same age as Sarah and also living in the Newcastle area, this book really struck home.
My husband also read the book and we talked for hours afterwards about Sarah's ordeal.
If Sarah ever reads this comment... I wish you all the best in the future - you deserve it x x x

Last year I wrote Trafficked: The Diary of a Sex Slave to try and raise awareness about trafficking, so after my research for it I was expecting a lot of the horrific ordeal that Sarah describes in her book, but many others may not be. This book is a must-read and is very well-written. You will cry while reading Sarah's heart-breaking story, and you will feel disgusted, sick, and angry, but it's a story that needs to be read. No one should have to go through this. Slave Girl addresses a lot of common misconceptions surrounding prostitution - mainly that these women must've got into it by choice. Society doesn't pay attention to the reason prostitutes are doing what they're doing. They don't stop and think how they got into that situation - far better to ignore it than have to deal with the horrendous fact that trafficking is a huge global problem that makes a hell of a lot of money for those involved, from the bottom right up to the very top. That woman working on a street corner or in a sauna or massage parlour that you see every day could be trafficked. In the UK, it is not hidden from view, but blatantly in your face - street corners, massage parlours freely advertising in phone boxes, on the net, in newspapers, and yet very little is done to protect these women from trafficking. Another misconception is that victims can just escape - it's not as simple as that. As Sarah says " Not all prisons have bars and walls - some are in the mind." Victims hardly ever speak out because they're subjected to unimaginable abuse and violence, or their families are threatened. They cannot escape because they are brainwashed into believing their captors and they don't know who to trust. In Sarah's case, she was further bound to her captors after being fed drugs just to get through her living hell.Read more ›

First of all, this is a book that I had to read though once started. The story is incredible, yet totally believable. In a nutshell it's her story of her dysfunctional and abused childhood, then being kidnapped in Holland and forced to be a prostitute, her drugs habits to numb some of the pain and her subsequent life to date fighting the drug habit and demons she was left with.

You get the impression that the subject of the book, Sarah Forsythe is some mixed up woman, trying in the end to battle back to the straight and narrow but finding it anything but easy. With all that happened to her, It's easy to write her off as one of life's losers and in many ways she was, but her way of looking at it is that she is one of life's survivors. Now that IS putting positive spin on her experiences. However, she did escape from her captivity, did assist in the prosecution of those involved and indeed did see her father brought to book for what he did to her. She is living an independent life, has a partner and contributes positively to the community. So whilst labelling herself as a survivor may originally have been a way to look positively on nothing but bad things, she is now showing how true it is.

The book is well written and very readable. The subject matter is harrowing but you need to know how things pan out.

In the end, this isn't just a book about a lass from the north east who gets into trouble, neither is it a book for women of a certain persuasion. As a true life story it is a compelling read for anyone and whatever your own life experiences, I suggest you read it. Especially if you're about to take up a job as a nanny in Amsterdam.

With trash like "50 Shades of Grey" currently charting it was truly a pleasure to read "Slave Girl". As far as erotic fiction goes, this book has it all: domination, submission, pedophilia, necrophilia, rape and much more are mixed into a story of drugs, travel and sexual experimentation. The main character's time in the exotic and salubrious locations of Gateshead and Amsterdam is well covered with a narrative that tempts one to keep turning to page for the next sexually charged scene.

OK ... joking aside this book is stunningly well written and, often times, very hard to read. There were points where I felt physically sick reading what I was and times where it is hard to feel anything but a depressing and moving empathy for the subject of the book - and those she ends up having to live with. It does has a strong feel of being ghost-written by someone else - if this is the case, they have done an exemplary job with the material. The happy ending (and when I say no pun intended here, I seriously mean it) is tempered with a harsh slap of reality and reminds readers of how things are not always perfect for those rescued from lives which have been decimated the the work of vile people.

This is certainly not a book to read when you are feeling depressed. At some points I found myself questioning if "artistic license" may have been used to take scenes beyond reality, but the book pulls no punches in disabusing readers from this. For those familiar with the films (feel free to read the 'parents guides' of them on IMDB), this book reads like Requiem for a Dream and Lilja-4-Ever mixed with scenes from A Serbian Film and The Human Centipede II thrown in. Prepare your mind accordingly.
