Book: Spare

 Book: Spare

Author: Prince Harry

Pages: 416

This is my 43rd read for the year

This is Prince Harry's story in his own words.  Starting from right around the time his mother was killed to right after the Queen dies, he recounts his life as a royal and the time since he left the family.  He talks about his time traveling the world, being a part of the British army, and getting married to Megan Markle and how that changed everything.

This book was a bit of a slog.  I read it because I was curious about the hype.  I should have passed on it.  The entire royal family sounds like a group of petulant children who get mad if they don't get their way.  For as much as Harry craves "privacy"- since he was let go from the family finances, he sure has done a good job being as public as possible so he can make a living. (living the way he was used to as a royal).  He actually mentions in the book being surprised when his dad cut him off financailly.  And honestly - the whole family sounds horrible from Harry's perspective.  The only people he speaks kindly of are his mother, and his grandmother - but only on occasion.  

Skip it.  I should have.
