Honesty about filth

I liked the book a lot. I dont usually read stuff like this because they tend to turn to jokes like Jenna Jameson's autobiography. I never read that yet it made itself into an episode of House MD. This is honestly written and hoestly read. Well, as honest as it could be I guess. I think if it were to be made into a TV series or streaming series or a movie, it would be well recieved. This memoir is a shitshow but an honest shitshow. Last time I felt what I'm feeling right now, I had just finished watching Blow starring Johnny Depp.

Happy. I wish more books like this existed. A+

Oriana Small aka Ashley Blue did a great job writing and reading her work for us. I really enjoyed this and appreciate the frank, direct way she tells her stories. I have always found the adult industry interesting and I'm sure I'd work in the field if I lived in that area. I really enjoyed the pacing, the thoroughness of Oriana Small's stories and the intelligent way this woman's life is portrayed. She's amazing, this book was amazing. I loved it and recommend it highly to people who like learning about the behind-the-scenes aspect of the adult film industry. I hope she continues to write because she is clearly great at it.

Not exactly sure what I expected

I suppose I purchased this book out of morbid curiosity rather than a sincere interest in her life and decisions that the author made. I sincerely tried not to judge her because her doing porn does not really bother me. There are plenty of stories in here containing some sexual acts that I just do not completely understand why anyone would subject themselves to, but I get that she was committed and wanted to try new things. I expected some depravity, but I honestly did not finish the whole thing. I probably made about one third of the way through. The hardest part were not graphic descriptions of sex, STDs, but the chronic illegal drug use of multiple substances (Cocaine, Ecstasy, etc.) When they started doing Chrystal Meth I lost the last remaining interest in hearing more about the author’s life. She has a problem with honest, but no problem with her boyfriend dipping stamps in Drano and selling them to 7th graders.

All this story is read in a monotone that is extremely boring and monotonous to listen to in one sitting. The one third I did make it through was broken up over time when I was not listening to more interesting books. If that were not the case, I am sure I would have stopped listening long before I did. Maybe this books does get better and she redeems herself in her own eyes, but that is something I will never know and honestly do not care to learn about.
