This was not a favorite. I have many concerns about a white woman appropriating a Saudi woman's story, but even the writing was just not great. ( )

Princess by Jean Sasson is a nonfiction novel that follows the childhood and young adulthood of Princess Sultana while living in Saudi Arabia. Sasson writes about the abuse and sexism Princess Sultana endured behind the palace walls. We learn about her negative relationships with men, the unfair treatment she faced, and we even read about her female relatives and friends oppression within Saudi Arabia. This novel discusses and describes serious topics like rape, violence and abuse that shocks the readers. Even though these topics are difficult to read about, I feel that a lot of people (mostly men) should read this book so that they can get a better understanding of how some women deal with extreme sexism. This book should open a discussion for women's issues and how feminism is essential in this world. ( )

Princess written by Jean Sasson shares the life and stories of Princess Sultana from Saudi Arabia. Sasson becomes Sultana’s voice as she uncovers the struggles of being a woman in Saudi Arabia. She exposes the unfair treatment of women and the hardships they face. Sasson emphasizes the male dominance that is in Sultana’s world and the power of male-relatives. Women are unable to be in control of their own lives and they are chained down at the hands of men. Sultana is defiant in becoming a broken spirit and she recognizes injustice. She refuses to accept the societal rules that make women feel worthless. Women are suppressed and diminished in their social roles. Sultana wants the world to know of the unfair gender roles that cause the mistreatment of women in her county. The author does an excellent job conveying Sultana’s life to the readers and educating them on the pain that women are forced to endure while incorporating interesting stories. I would definitely recommend this book to others and I think it expresses crucial messages.

Princess, as the book jacket says, is a privileged peek behind the walls of a sumptuous palace owned by a relative of the al-Sau'd family in Saudi Arabia. It takes us into a world of almost unbelievable wealth, but in this incredible richness is a world which I would not enter for a king's ransom.

I have been given glimpses throughout my life of societies where men are dominant, women inferior. I've even been in a couple of relationships of that sort, and thought myself hard done by. I cannot lessen the damage that certain men have meted out to me, but held against the horrors in Saudi Arabia it is like a single thorn in a prickly rose bush. Did you know that women could be stoned to death or drowned at a patriarch's whim? Or shut into a windowless dark room at the age of 22, and never be allowed out again, not until you die and they remove your body? Every day Saudi Arabian women risk death, punishment, brutality, and humiliation.

It is a land of child marriages, of men with several wives, where female children are a disappointment, where a woman can be cast off if she is barren or if she does not bear sons. It was in this kingdom that a Washington Post reporter just last year was chopped into bits with a chain saw while still alive. I am so glad tourists are not permitted into the Saudi kingdom, because I would hate to travel there.

For all that I found out appalling things while reading Princess, I didn't really enjoy the book. Part of that was the content, but part was because I found the woman describing these events annoying, for all that she does to help improve the situation of women in Saudi Arabia. Honestly, I'm not even sure why I wasn't enjoying the book, or at least reading it with interest. But I didn't.

An interesting book, I won't be reading the follow-up volumes. ( )
