"Gripping and honest" (News of the World)

"An explicit, graphic, ultimately terrifying read . . . will act as a warning to young woman who thinks prostitution is glamorous" (York Press)

Descripción del producto

In Hooked, reformed addict Clare Gee draws on her own experiences of cocaine addiction, alcoholism and prostitution in telling the sensational story of a woman living on the edge.

Emotionally scarred by having never known her mother, Katie escapes to London and immerses herself in a seedy world of drugs, drink and sex, chasing happiness in the pubs and clubs, and snorting cocaine in private members' bars with her rich punters.

Finding herself in a cycle of prostitution and unable to break free, she turns to drug smuggling and becomes embroiled in a bigamous marriage in an attempt to secure some emotional stability. From this dark emotional pit, Katie starts her painful journey back to 'wellness' and attempts to rid herself of her addictions for good.

Hooked is a graphic tale of how life as a prostitute really is and what can happen when we search for happiness outside of ourselves. It is a poignant reminder that things can always get better, as long as we remember that when it's time to leave the party, it's time.

Well, the first thing that needs to be said about this book is that despite it's title, which heavily implies the story is about one woman's life as a call girl, it is actually more about her drug addiction and messed up personal relationships. Her experiences as a call girl are just a fleeting side note to the bigger story of her cocaine addiction.

But the title "Hooked" is definitely still fitting. The story follows Katie, a woman who's life has spiraled out of control due to her serious abandonment issues and her crippling drug addiction. Like many addicts, Katie turns to cocaine and alcohol to try to numb the pain of her life. Unable to hold down a serious job, she turns to prostitution as an easy way to make money, even though she has a deep loathing of exchanging sex with random men for money.

Although the story itself is okay, the author's writing style is rough, amateur, and sometimes hard to follow. My biggest problem with the manner of storytelling was that the book is written almost entirely in dialogue, and the dialogue is often annoyingly repetitive. There are very few solidly descriptive paragraphs. It's hard to get a real feel for the story when the characters do nothing but talk in circles, and it's sometimes hard to discern which character is speaking, and who is saying what. And since this is a novel about a call girl in London, the dialogue often uses words and phrases that only make sense to people familiar with British slang and manner of speech.

If you prefer a story that is more about the sexual experiences and adventures of call girls, I would recommend Belle de Jour: Diary of an Unlikely Call Girl or Callgirl: Confessions of an Ivy League Lady of Pleasure. These books give a very different and more positive perspective on the life of a call girl.

Despite the issues I had with "Hooked", it is an interesting look into one woman's emotional and mental struggles with life and addiction. It may be a little rough around the edges, but it's still worth a read.
