Format: Paperback
I had read a few reviews for this book before I ordered it and they were quite mixed. Some people really loved, others thought it fell short. I fall into the latter category and perhaps it was because my expectations were too high.

The writing style gets annoying quickly with the constant overuse of similes. As I was reading it, the first thing that came to my mind was, "If you're going to write a book about your experience as a stripper, tell the naked truth (as it were). Don't leave out certain details because you're obviously now embarrassed by them." If you're looking for a more raw book regarding a woman's experience in the sex trade industry (stripping, etc), I would recommend Jenna Jameson's book "How To Make Love Like A Porn Star". It's far better than Diablo Cody's memoir.

I really enjoyed this book. I don't want to write much as you should check it out. It has its funny moments but I just feel given the subject there was potential for so much more.

Don't get me wrong, it is a good read but if it was me I would have put in so much more detail.

Diablo Cody has sparked my interest but ultimately left me disappointed with this work. While the novel does not make for a bad read, for me it just lacked any real insight.

Format: Paperback
This book was surprisingly entertaining. I had been concerned that it was going to be some sob-story woe-is-me tale about a woman trapped in a lifestyle. It is actually quite the opposite of that. The author claims to have gone into stripping of her own free will - and not ostensibly to write this book either - this is actually the only part of the whole book that I didn't feel was true. I can understand going "undercover" to get all the dirty details with the intent of exposing it, but her rationale is that she was "rebelling". I just didn't believe her motivations - women don't enter the sex trade to rebel. And I don't believe her relationship with her boyfriend either - she can go rub up on strangers all night and he's okay with that? yeah...

Anyway, the author's motivations aside, it's a very interesting and fast story. There are some very funny parts, and some very disturbing parts, and I'm pleased that I read it.

WHAT!!! There's porn and foul language and depictions of obscene behaviors in a book about the porn industry!!??? What a shocker!

(Did we really expect it to be a "wholesome" stripper story? Really?)

I'm awaiting my copy, so I haven't read it yet. Watching 'Diablo' (or Brooke) chatting with Dave Letterman certainly made me want to read her book. I do like a gutsy, confident woman, pink fishnet notwithstanding. Robin
