Most Helpful Customer Reviews
“The Life of a Stripper” is five short stories from a book of fifty. There was not much in the stories I reads to entice me to buy more. If these were the best of the fifty, it has little to offer.
It was interesting to read their thoughts on the what being a stripper is and means. While I do not approve of the life style I wanted to know their thoughts on it. It was interesting to see the different reasons they started in the business and how they are realistic knowing it will not last for long. It was a free read and interesting. But repetative in ways and its trying to sell a much bigger book to you but I thought of this as reading a sample and it was enough.
I was hoping to catch a glimpse of this very interesting lifestyle, and although the questions posed could have had very colorful and detailed answers, it read.more.like a high school english assignment. Unfortunately, all of the stories sounded the same and the answers sounded like the bare minimum requirements to answer the question posed, instead of the colorful stories they could have been. Less than 100 pgs
Not a page turner. Was the same story over and over only the name of the dancer changed.
