Clair Louise Coult
My name is Clair Louise Coult, I live near Sheffield, England with my husband and 3 children. I'm a creative person at heart, if I'm not knitting, sewing, writing or taking photographs then I'm singing, playing my guitar or baking the best cupcakes in the world.
I've been into alternative/indie music since I was 15 years old. I have 9 piercings, 1 tattoo and I'm always dyeing my hair silly colours. I'm a bit of a petrolhead, I love motor racing (especially F1) and I'm also a gadget geek. I live on the internet and I'm lost without my computer, tablet and phone. I love my family and friends, my pets, trees, Fender guitars, Japanese stuff and shoes. I really like shoes.

Smashwords book reviews by Clair Louise Coult
- Whores: not intended to be a factual account of the gender war
on March 09, 2013
This is not a novel for the faint hearted. It's a hard hitting and graphically explicit account of a time when women's rights are not so much being eroded as being totally annihilated. Contraception, abortion and even basic women's health care is illegal. Women are treated little better than walking incubators and the gender criminals who dare to fight the law are hunted, tortured and made a public example of to deter any other women from daring to challenge legislation.
The book throws you straight into the action as the police storm an illegal abortion clinic. The violence is graphic but not in a gratuitous way. The underground resistance use equivalent force to fight for their rights as the police do to uphold the draconian laws.
The story is told from different perspectives which gives balance and completeness. Whatever your opinions on women's rights, the authors unique insight on the subject will get you thinking outside the box and perhaps questioning your own morals. You soon come to sympathise with the plight of the underground resistance. How could any government make it a crime to treat breast cancer or end a molar pregnancy? How could any sane human being uphold such laws?
It's not an easy read, the violence is graphic, the language explicit and the subject matter challenging, but the story is compelling and you won't be able to put it down.
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
