This book made me sad for lots of different reasons: the way that William is portrayed; how lost Harry seems; the feeling that he is selling out his family; the lack of warmth; how Harry is showing himself as a victim and the rest of the family as bullies. I'm not sure why I read it even, maybe to see how the other half lives? I almost wish I hadn't now. ( )

Harry and his ghostwriter have done good work in Spare. It feels like Harry’s voice isn’t too lost amid the writing of a professional hired to make it sound better. I just don’t love the practice of ghostwriting and find it to be a bit dodgy.

I enjoyed reading Harry’s perspective on his very public life and analyzing how events affected him. I also see Harry taking responsibility and acknowledging areas in which he has found a need to learn and grow. He acknowledges his privilege, and it seems he has sought through philanthropic work to give back in meaningful ways.

This man’s life story is a sound reminder that even the most privileged life holds heartbreak and problems. If your approach to this book is that it’s the collected whinings of a spoiled brat about the minor inconveniences of being a Royal, I encourage you to flex your empathy muscles. Happiness and fulfillment don’t just come along with wealth and status. Everyone has struggles. Even a prince. ( )

This memoir of the first thirty-something years of Prince Harry's life has been widely discussed in the media and there is probably not too much left unsaid about it. In the book, Harry relates memories of his childhood, writes about dealing with the tragic death of his mother, royal life, his time in the military, getting to know Meghan and leaving Britain. First and foremost he writes about his relation with the press and how paparazzi make his life a living hell. While all of this is interesting to read, I found the whole book not as sensational. I knew that as a royal you were constantly subjected to being in the news, but the extent of being photographed every instant of your life and being harassed by paparazzi every step of your way was surprising to me. I would have thought that the palace had more clout in getting some privacy, making stories go away or would at least sue media outlets for libel more often. The one thing that bugged me about the book - but this was to be expected, it being a memoir - is the degree of subjectivity that shines through in various places. Of course, this is a portrayal of Harry's view, but somehow the descriptions feel exceptionally one-sided sometimes. Then again, this puts more urgency behind his call for more privacy. In that sense, I think it is completely fair and everyone knows that this is Harry's opinion. I would not dare to judge what this man has to go through and I found myself really rooting for him. Overall, I did enjoy reading the book. 3.5 stars. ( )

Really never been a big fan of „the royals“ but all the hoopla over Meghan piqued my curiosity. Well written book, gives a lot of insight into the behind the scenes machinations of “The Firm” and their hangers on. ( )

I read this book because it is a best selling controversial telling of memories. I took it as one person reflecting on his thoughts of his life at a specific time. Just as his early days of roaming Balmoral Castle (which I tremendously enjoyed learned about,) his interations with his father, mother and bother, and his difficult time of acceptiong the death of his mother is a telling of that time, why can't the rest of his memories be just that -- his memories -- his throughts!!

I know this is a book laden with opinions. I simply enjoyed the descripton of the castles, the strick hierachtical british system, and his love of his granny and mother. In the beginning of the book his father is portrayed as a cold man, but someone who really tries to break down barriers. Give the father a break for trying, which is what I think Harry is trying to do.

I love that his father calls him "Darling Boy!." Harry's recollections of treatment after his mother died and Camilla came into the picture is of course, his view. It should remain just that ... his view.

Frankly, I didn't understand why this singular book caused such a racus. Harry explained how he felt, and backed it up with examples. I'm not sure he did this to harm which is what he is accused of.

San, British aristocracy, I am sure that if I wrote a book about each of my sisters, my father, my mother and granny, they would not accept my feelings and thoughts. But that is exactly what they would be, ie my remembrances.

I am saying that I don't understand what all the hupla is about. Let the Darling Boy have his memories. Let him tell the reader what he thought. Why add all the drama to his opinions. IF he is hurt then let him express this opinion. I just don't understand this ostrazation and drama. ( )

Two years older than me, Willy was the Heir, whereas I was the Spare.
His eyes flew up to his hairline, like startled birds.
She was famous for saying that, no matter how bad things got, she'd never, ever leave England, and people loved her for it. I loved her for it. I loved my country, and the idea of declaring you'd never leave struck me as wonderful.
… absurd gifts from foreign governments and potentates. (No one wanted them, but they could not be regifted or donated, or thrown out, so they'd been carefully logged and sealed away.)
Pa...(did watch the BBC, but he'd often end up
throwing the controller at the TV.)
