My Review: Stop the Traffik
At the end of the month, First Wildcard will be touring Stop the Traffik, a book produced by the United Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking. Stop the Traffic is styled more like a magezine than most books. It has abundant photographs, charts, graphs, and other graphic elements. While divided into chapters, they are really more of a collection of related stories than chapters with a beginning, middle and end. While the book contains stories of many people, they are all short and just tell the surface facts, rather than getting deeper as a book by and about one person, such as Road to Lost Innocence.
This was not an enjoyable book to read, but it is a book that needs to be read. For more information on human traffiking, see these websites: Stop the Traffik Coalition for the Removal of Pimping as well as others referenced in the book.
