Prince Harry’s Novel doesn’t spare any details


Prince Harry’s new book, Spare, has gained popularity since it came out January 10. Spare is a deeply personal account of Harry’s life, divided up into 3 parts, starting from the death of his mother Diana, to the death of Queen Elizabeth II. 

Although this book has gotten plenty of judgment, I honestly really enjoyed it. There was a lot I didn’t know about Harry’s life; a lot most people didn’t know about until this book came out. I found his military life very interesting, since that was the part I knew the least about.

While most people know a lot about his life with Meghan, there were many new details that he shared in this book. I knew he had a strained relationship with his family, but I was shocked at some of the things they said to him, and times when it even became physical when William was upset at him. It shows how horrible the abuse Meghan and him had to go through really was. His family really hurt them and left them out to dry. However, you can tell that although he has a complicated relationship with his family, he still loves them deeply. 

The reason I decided to rate it a 4/5 was just because it wasn’t one of my favorite books, although I still really liked it (I feel like it would be rare for me to rate a book 5/5). The only part that was kind of hard to read was a certain chapter that I think a lot of people have heard of, though I won’t mention it here. It was a bit TMI (Too Much Information), but it didn’t ruin the book for me.

Harry had to go through many challenges and hardships throughout his life. From losing his mother, PTSD, the media and the falling out with his family. Now he finally found a bright spot in his life — Meghan and his new family with her. I hope that they can continue to live the rest of their lives in peace, and with as much normalcy as possible.
