Wow, what a story. This book definitely reminded me of Girl Trade by Chloe Thurlow, but while this novel was shorter and more cruel, and Girl Trade was longer and showed some of the more positive aspects of being a slave, I think A Girl Called 51 was the more realistic of the two.

Which is ironic, since the events in Girl Trade actually happened and this novel was a work of fiction. But I can so easily see a Complex like this one actually existing in Great Britain; and I know of a slave organization for the politicians of America does exist (see Cathy O'Brein's chronicles).

It wasa disturbing read, but also informative. I loved the authors writing style. It was simple and to the point and didn't irritate me overtly.

The end was climatic and somewhat expected but still great in arriving there. It was a moving story, and I'm not sure if I can stomach reading it again. Definitely a great book.
