This review is from: Paid For: My Journey Through Drugs and Prostitution: One Brave Woman's Account of the Violence that is Prostitution (Kindle Edition)
This book started off really well and in the beginning I was completely gripped by her sad/shocking story. However as the book progressed I began to feel suffocated by the writers labouring of just how hard the life of a prostitute is and how horrible men are. She constantly tells us that there are no women who do this job willingly and that pretty much all men are the same. Having read other books on the subject and watched various documentaries I was inclined to disagree although in no way do I think its a glamorous profession. In fairness, the book is very well written although I actually took a break from reading it as it became tiresome as I felt it was so repetitive and the writer comes across as very bitter. Perhaps had she not laboured her points so often she would have created a greater impact.
