Trafficked: The Diary of a Sex Slave

Title:   Trafficked: The Diary of a Sex Slave

Author: Sibel Hodge

Series: No

Type of book: Nonfiction

Why did I read it? I have read other books by this author

How did I read it?:  Kindle eBook

What I got from the book:

This is a situation where upon completion of this book I really need to review it immediately. I have not stopped crying yet. So you will need to have some tissues throughout the read. I do not normally read this type of genre but was given the book from the author. It is compelling reading and very telling as to how cruel criminals are. To be treated as an object and not seen as a human being has to be the most horrible feeling in the spectrum of feelings humans even have. This comes out in the telling of this young woman’s story clearly. It is a necessary story to tell since it sheds light on a very really industry that should not exist. It is one thing for a person to choose prostitution and to make a living at it. It is entirely another for a person to be forced into slavery to be given as sex slaves and hardly have proper food or medical care and to be punished if they are too sick to work. How could any customer want to exploit unwilling participants? It is sick. They are just a criminal for providing the incentive in the first place for the business.
I know this is not the usual way I write my reviews, but I had to editorialize a little after reading this. Check out the links provided and find out if there is a way we can all put an end to human trafficking of every kind.

  1. I think this is horrible when you can't find a hardcopy but you can in an ebook...
