This is a novel based on a true story. It as written by Jean Sasson. Its page count is 304. This is a biography of a Saudi women who is unable to express herself to world and that is why she takes help of a writer friend to demonstrate her story. the popularity of novel can be estimated from the matter that its first edition was sold hand to hand.

Family atmosphere of family

The princess belongs to a royal family. Her father has four wives as all other Saudi men. They are ten siblings- 9 girls and 1 boy. Obviously, the brother held the topmost position among them. Their mother is lady of morals. All the girls are very much attached to their mother. But the mother has no decisive power. All the decisions are made by the father of the family.

Character of princess

The princess is very much different from all of her siblings. She is rebellious and stubborn by nature. She hates her brother from childhood, for his extreme position. Later on, with time this hate goes on increasing. She wants justice for the girls of family. She becomes the first girl of family to have husband of her choice. In case of marriage, she is very much lucky. In this way she lives her life on her own terms. She is the true inspiration behind the veil.

Review

The story rotates around the fight of a women against injustice and inequality. The princess strongly believe in humanity and in her country there is nothing like humanity. She lives her life as if she is fighting a battle. Her elder sister Sara is her support system.
The story depicts the poor condition of women in the Saudi society and describes how their situation is worse than camels. She fights for the rights of every other women who needs her assistance. The story tells how teenage girls are compelled to marry a man of five-times their age. the government has set impossible rules and punishments like drowning, stoning and isolation in women's room are very common. The princess give birth to three angels a boy and two girls. She wants to give best ordinates to her children. The Princess Sultana (pseudo identity) is the true epitome of strength and a wonderful inspiration.

The author of the novel has been sued for plagiarism. I also now feel that the book may not really be a "true story" but a fragment of some collected facts.

Its not the story of author.What I think is that the author collected some experiences and lined them as a novel.

Hello SHIV, I write this message in your honour. Because you are smart and clever to have realised the "PRINCESS" book's are not 'none fiction' but fiction.
Jean Sasson is a natorious hoax author. Please read "THE PHONEY PRINCESS" you get it on Amazon. It's the true expose story of American fake author Jean Sasson's "Princess" hoax book's. This utter disgrace to woman authors writes fiction and then sells it as none fiction duping readers.
