Spare by Harry
book review #165
Prince Harry’s mother Princess Diana passed away in a tragic car accident when he was 12.
2.5 Billion viewers on television saw her funeral and millions mourned her death. However, Harry convinced himself for the next 11 years that his mother was still alive and faked her death to avoid the British tabloids.
When he was 23 on a visit to Paris, he requested to be driven in a vehicle through the tunnel where his mother died at the same speed. This was when he finally came to terms with the reality of his mother's tragic accident.
This is quite sad. While explaining the events of his life from until this point, he constantly goes back to thinking about his mother in hiding and makes up stories for why she hasn't contacted him yet or where she is.
A regal book that shows marked character development in Harry from being a spoilt kid to a grown man.
