In case anyone is hesitating, it is the most compelling and refreshingly honest account of a personal journey to be published in many years. A gripping and stunning debut, which becomes a social document of our times even whilst focussing on the intensely individual pain of its heroine (no pun intended)..Strongly recommended!

Let's be clear to start I don't have much sympathy for the character portrayed in this fairly standard story of a young escort's experience in London, she's incredibly self-centred and boring however I do have some empathy for the main protagonist having had a very similar experience with a close female friend I know, and although fictional, this is a very honest account of a young call girl's experience in London. Many of the issues she touched on were reflected in my own experience of living in London at that point in time. When I first did my review I gave it another start but on reflection 3 is probably what it deserves as the endless 'I got pissed I took coke' is pretty dull despite being an honest reflection.

The story isn't particularly original ,which is why I don't give it more than 3 stars, because I think if you asked any girl in the escort industry in London you would get a similar story but it is well written and honest and that makes it a worthwhile read.

I hope the author tries her hand at pure fiction I feel sure she could write something good.

I look forward to reading the follow-up although I imagine this will involve her rehab and the predictable arduous journey to her freedom from addiction that everyone she knows must then celebrate regardless of how much s*** she had thrown at them whilst in the throes of her pointless addicition.

I finished this book today and found it an intriguing read. I couldn't wait to find out what would happen to Katie next in her interesting and self destructive life! The blunt and colloquial tone adopted throughout was also fantastic, as I could really feel that there was an autobiographical element to the novel. I like the fact that the author did not sugar coat anything, it was blunt and realistic. Despite Katie being rather self-obsessed she was still likeable, and the psychology behind her addiction was also explored quite interestingly.
I could empathise with Katie, even though I have never been in her situation, and I felt particularly moved when she was raped by that middle-class man. I feel that the novel really strikes a cord, as so many women really do sleep with men in order to feel desirable and loved.. and that they should learn to love themselves instead of giving themselves to men to be used.However, despite enjoying the story I did find the ending to be possibly rushed, I would have liked to learn more about about her recovery/rehab. It seemed as if the novel was too nicely wrapped up... But for sheer entertainment I would recommend this novel to anyone, it will not take you very long to read as it is such a page turner!

Amazing debut book, filled with all the pain and honesty of an addicts personal journey to recovery. A real insight into the darkness and degredation that addition can bring and the strength to tackle those inner deamons. A must buy - it's refreshing to read something so honest.Hooked: Confessions of a London Call Girl

I picked this book up on Sunday and by 3am the following morning I has finished it. Amazingly fast paced and intoxicating; leading the reader down the twisted lanes and alleys of a life tumbling out of control. I thoroughly enjoyed the sensitivity throughout this book, and with its butterfly like presence of wanting to get well, exacerbated towards the end when Clare finally broke out of her cycle of chaos and found recovery and the beginnings of a new life. A must read for those always look inwards as well as outwards on life.

The types of books I usually read are diaries about sexual encounters with a fun spin on the things the women get up to, this clearly has a darker side which is a new one for me.

The 1st few chapters skip back & forth which I found a little annoying but stuck with the book & I'm glad I did, it was a very good book detailing how addiction can really take control of someone's life even when they think they have control of the situation it can rapidly change.

It was an interesting read & I would recommend it to anyone who likes an honest read.

Don't waste your money, It's filth for the sake of filth. It isn't interesting in any way. I thought I was going to read a heart felt story about someone involved in the worst aspects of life and trying desperately to help themselves.
Who wants to know how a class A drug stimulates a bowel movement? That was page 22 where it finished for me Yuck.
