    • How little Westerners understand of the lives of Muslim women of Saudi Arabia, one of the world's richest countries! The author worked as a nurse for a dozen years in Saudi Arabia in which time she met and befriended the royal princess whose story she tells. Although not intended to demean the Islamic faith, Princess Sultana's story reveals the harsh, unbalanced conditions that continue to plague females living in the birthplace of the Prophet Mohammed.


    • If it is true its ugly :D A book which is highly 'not' recommended. If you are sensitive and phobic towards people better not read it: blood pressure will shoot up. World is a strange placeeming is another thing truth is another. And it confuses the reader whether it is true or there is an element of exaggeration in it.


    • I hesitate to say I loved this book because of some of the horrifying content in it, but I was captivated by the first page. Every woman should be made aware of the freedoms they enjoy, that they take for granted daily. It's heartbreaking to read about such abuse to our sisters, but necessary to expose it if we are ever going to demand change. Princess is a MUST read.


    • Is an account of the atrocities women are subjected to in Saudia Arabiaabsolutely outrageous! Bound to leave the reader disturbed. In addition to that the political turmoil faced by the Gulf nation has also been explained in depth. Overall, a fine read however,but like i mentioned earlier, very disturbing!!


    • I am very glad I discovered this book at a library book sale. It is a great perspective of one woman's view of her life as a Saudi Arabian royal family member. I enjoyed hearing of her 'small victories' and also heart broken at learning of the atrocities that befall women there. I have ordered the other two books that continue Sultana's story from my library!


    • WEALTH DOESN'T HOLD TRUE HAPPINESS , BUT FREEDOM!!THE WHOLE BOOK TAKES US TO THE CORE OF SHELL OF MEN'S cowardice . the life of women "BE IT A PRINCESS " OR AN ORDINARY WOMEN, THEY LIVE A HECK OF LIFE AHEAD THEM. YES, THERE ARE SPLENDID DAYS BUT they breathe under a fist of men . of course THE FAITH ISLAM , is not to be held responsible for these oppressed women but the muttawas who manipulate the message of their own holy book. this book obviously wasnt the first one i read of oppressed women b [...]


    • When I am not reading this book,I think about itWhen I am reading this book,I get goosebumps flesh all overFrom my point of view, its a deep insight in the lives of atrocities against women in Saudi, just narrated by "Sultana", with a helpless fury. When I read the book, I couldn't help but wonder that she being a princess could have made some change to the lives of women around. I find her complaining about her own life which was far too better than the miseries of her own blood. A person with [...]


    • Princess is the story of Saudi Arabian princess in veil, their harrowing life behind the veil and the prejudices they face. The book deals with the love, sex, freedom and everything you can guess of when it comes about living a free life. In fact, this book is written by Jean P. Sasson who have translated what she heard from one of her friend who use to be friend of the princess. The partiality and possessiveness of male over female is being portrait in this book.If you want to have a real pictu [...]


    • An amazing true story that reveals how Saudi from the royal class act in their daily life and how do the society prefer men over women. Choosing a gender made women compete and hate men for the opportunities they have. This story is really entertaining, I never got bored while reading it and i don't mind reading it over and over again!


    • I discovered a different culture from ours; and I am horrified to see that women, in our 21st century, have no human rights and are treated like objects and at the disposal of the men. One can only hope that this book will bring awareness around the world and somehow help the women of Saudi Arabia. It was an easy to read book.


    • I am from Middle East and i never knew that how the rulers lived, we do have unfairness between girls and boys but the story made me see everything in a different way it was amazing and she had courage since she was young its inspiring.


    • Very interesting! Fast read. Fascinating. Like watching a train wreck. You don't really want to know, but can't look away. Certainly not a life any Westerner would envy. I hope things have changed for women in Saudi Arabia in the last 20 yrs since this book was written!


    • just finished this one for book club. An amazing read into a culture we know so little about. Amazing and even comical to know that Saudi Arabia sits on the United Nations Human Rights Council, what a crock!




    • Short story on Kobo about a woman in an Arab country. She tells her story of discrimination against women. 2 more books have been written about her. Not bad, not great.


    • Excellent book, but horrifying story. Women are no more than sex slaves in Saudi Arabia.Another book that leaves me thankful that I was born in the USA.


    • One of 2 books to be read for the IRB Book Club meeting in November. One of the first "behind the veil" books. This one told to the author by a woman in the royal Saudi family.





    • Very interesting read about the life of a Saudi Arabian women. I had always thought life was pretty much the same for all Middle Eastern women but I was wrong.






    • This book, written in 1992, gives a first -hand account of life in the royal family of Saudi Arabia. It is chilling to read how even very rich women had no freedom at all. There was no chance of help from the police, since the religious right there was so powerful. Women there were still being sentenced to death by stoning or be-heading for "lewd behavior", which included being so unfortunate as to be gang-raped in your own home. The book makes it clear how these laws have warped the men's views [...]


    • So glad to have read (listened to) this book. Amazing insight into life in Saudi Arabia for women. I had no idea how sad and cruel it could be. I cried many times and was deeply shocked. But it's a brilliant book
