The 'Cons'...for a book based on fact, this book has the most insulting ending...pure fantasy; was a let down.
Final Verdict: Worth reading even for all women/parents for the value of good judgement and the 'what if's we never new existed.
As the story starts out, our h is your typical teen; quite naive and thinks she is invincible. Nothing bad would ever happen to her, right? That only happens to other people. She gets kidnapped into the human trafficking trade. She is scared and alone and reacts as such.
The problem I have with this story, in general terms, is that the things that happen to one girl throughout the story just seem to build and build and become so over the top that they just become unbelievable and almost comical.
Huge spoiler alert!!
The ending just made me ANGRY!
She finally escapes, runs into one of her regulars from the brothel that she thinks she's in love with, and asks him to take her to the American embassy. He's so angry that she would rather go to the embassy than to stay with him, that he rapes her and then takes her back to the brothel where he knows how horribly she is treated and is also aware that her life is in grave danger there. Great guy, huh? Then later on, he does rescue her when he finds out that she is going to be put to death and then puts her through a test to see if she really loves him or not. She passes the test and so he marries her and she is giddy with happiness. Disgusting! These are not the actions of a man who truly loves a woman!
The girl taken has grown into a woman by the time her ordeal ends and yes the fictional ending is a happy one or at least one of her choice. Older teens are as a group, easy to influence and change, and the girl in the story has one goal that stays in her mind and that is survival, as she is influenced and adapts to the life of a slave. She is sold several times into different situations to finally end being owned and leased to a high-class club for men, which translates into a club where men can do whatever they wish to her, absolutely barbaric behavior and humiliation. She has friends, eunuchs, other slave girls and some of the gentlemen that come to the club to give her some good moments during her captivity.
Harem Slave is a story that I will not forget soon; if you want a fictional story based on reality of one of the ugliest parts of humankind ~ slavery ~ this is it.
