It a emotional rollercoaster ride from start to finish. This book will be an inspiration to so many. By writting this book Charlie daniels has opened up a whole knew world to so many people and i wish her continued success.This book is definately not one to be missed.( My partner read it after me and couldn't put it down)
One's imagination is then filled with the charismatic and flamboyant lifestyle she led when she became a Madam. This lady also has a very witty and sharp mind and you will also find yourself laughing at her very dry sense of humour. What also comes across is her love of culture and the arts.
It was a book I did not want to end, and as well as giving us tremendous insight and awareness of one of the oldest professions it leaves you looking for more.
The book is relatively slim at 300 pages spread over 29 chapters with an average chapter length of approximately 10 pages. Steady readers or a chapter per night brigade have manageable chunks to digest. The book represents a big piece of Charlie's life, each episode unfolding over about 10 sides of paper as a story of a survivor in the sex industry evolves. Some of the subject matter may shock readers; child abuse, pedophilia, physical attacks, and drug abuse.
The writing style at the beginning of the book is minimalist and direct to set the scene and take you into the sex industry world. There is an absence of waffle and the Spartan feel made me reflect on the skeletal life style the author endured on the street. As the book progresses a richer picture develops reflecting the authors change in lifestyle.
Charlie shares her life on the street with you and explodes myths that it is easy money.Read more ›
I've previously read one or two books of a similar nature, (previously this was a world I knew very little about), but always felt they were only scratching at the surface - this book paints a frank, vivid & fascinating picture & what makes it essentially more powerful, is its completely honest approach and moving human story.
As well as the vice theme, there are other stories running that had me absolutely hooked; the authors search for her birth parents, her struggle to become a good mother and her attraction to dangerous and often violent men.
There have been some excellent survivor stories over the years, (but im sure a lot of them would have been ghostwritten) so the fact the author won an award in prison for her writting, (the winning piece being one of the chapters)
-is a truly inspirational story in itself.
