Born in a Cambodian village, Somaly Mam was sold into sexual slavery by her grandfather at age twelve. For the next decade she was shuttled through the brothels that make up the sprawling sex trade of Southeast Asia. She suffered the brutality and horrors of human trafficking--rape, torture, deprivation--until she managed to escape with the help of a French aid worker. Emboldened by her newfound freedom, education, and security, Somaly blossomed but remained haunted by the girls in the brothels she left behind. This book tells the story of her awakening as an activist and her harrowing and brave fight against the powerful and corrupt forces that steal the lives of these girls. She has built shelters, started schools, and founded an organization that has so far saved more than four thousand women and children in Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, and Laos.--From publisher description.… (lisätietoja)

After reading the book and then researching Somaly Mam I am left unsure of what to believe. I believe this is a book about the real fight for the victims of human trafficking, prostitution, corruption and the effects of war in Cambodia. While Somala seems to be guilty of changing the facts to gain attention to the problems of women in her country, she has certainly been working tirelessly to try to improve the conditions there. It seems that when checked, many of our heros do the same thing. But it is a read that provokes discussion and attention to the life there and should bring understanding to those who live in the trauma of a war torn, corrupt country... ( )

Sadly this is the latest "memoir" to be exposed as having been fiction. A serious disservice to the thousands of women and children still stuck in sex slavery. ( )

This book is honest, brutally, painfully honest and that is really why it can make a difference. With every page I felt Somaly Mam's struggle with the prostitution that was a big part of her past and how the very same past has propelled her forward. I feel lucky, extremely lucky, because I know had I lived the life she has I would have been completely broken and not able to stand up for righteousness like she has. She is a true hero.

In many ways the story of the little Cambodian girls sold by their very own parents, owned like commodities by different people in different points in their lives, I find those stories similar to the untold stories of little Nepalese girls in the forgotten villages of my country. It has made it easier for me to empathize with the horrors described in the book. This book shows Mam's strength as a human being and her story is one that deserves to be told.

In many ways it is not the writing or even the content of the book that will draw the reader in; it is the brutally honest way that the story is written that will leave a lasting impression. One can feel the pain Mam was feeling, see the horrors that she was encountering from her past while writing this book. The fact that she completed this book no matter what it cost her to go down the memory lane is what makes this even more commendable.

It is a must read for every person of every gender who want to know how deep the roots of sex slavery, prostitution and human trafficking go into our society. ( )

When I started to read the book, noting the curiously flat tone and simple language, I thought I was in for another one of the books like [b:Slave|2929235|Sklavin|Mende Nazer|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/21U93KReBBL._SL75_.jpg|1116999] by Mende Nazer (a 5-star book) or even Halima Bashir's [b:Tears of the Desert: A Memoir of Survival in Darfur|3170677|Tears of the Desert A Memoir of Survival in Darfur|Halima Bashir|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1267830964s/3170677.jpg|3202798] (another 5-star read). I've read a lot of these books of Black men and women taken by the Arabs in Sudan as slaves or victims of a civil war and I'd reached the point where I only wanted to read another one if it was going to be radically different. This one is.

Somaly Mam didn't have a good start in life and it went rapidly downhill after that with her as a young girl being sold to a 'grandfather' as a slave, a man who would repay his debts at the local shop by selling her virginity in a violent rape. The downhill acceleration picked up from there.

But then she met a man, a typical European traveller who likes working abroad and mixing with the locals and doesn't much mind if he pays for sex or not. Becoming his mistress saved her life. Eventually she forms a powerful and very successful charity to save other girls, estimated to be 1 in 40 of all the girls in Cambodia, who have found themselves with nowhere lower than death to go, and even in that, Somaly Mam is there for them. It's the story of her life and how it changed with this man that is the most interesting part.

I've seen sex slaves. My son and I were in Bangkok and went to the Patpong market, a night market. Down the centre of the broad street were stalls back-to-back selling t-shirts and jewelry and down the sides were shops and bars. The bars had their doors propped half open and inside some, dancing on round tables were exquisite doll-like girls with dull, dead eyes, swinging slowly around their stripper poles as they waited for the customers to come inside.

I'm glad I've read the book, its fleshed out the statistics I've read on sex slavery in the Far East, and given life to those girls who looked like they had none or didn't care if they did or not. I wouldn't have chosen that market for my son to see at only fourteen, but then why not, he was the same age as those dead-eyed girls.
