Jean Sasson A Voice for Middle Eastern Women
Be the first to ask a question about The Complete Princess Trilogy. Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. I have read the first book orincess i am now starting the second and i think its amazing for princese nonfiction book.
To hear about what women go through in that country and how they are treated was so sad. I despised her horrible brother and negletive father.
Though certin things were uncalled for i still think of her as my roll model! This trilogy is one of my all time favorite books! Sasson is an amazing writer.

Also, the “real” princess that allowed her story to be told is an incredible woman! I would love to meet her! I can’t help but admire and respect her for allowing this story to be told. Oct 15, Sumaiya rated it liked it. The 2nd book , prijcess would have been really good if it was a fiction book. Moreover, there was many false ideas about islamic rules interpreted in the book.
I can understand that some of these stories might be true but it is very hard for me to believe sassob. May 24, Kym Godwin rated it it was amazing. I could feel her pain, joy, and determination. Living in the Middle East I know that while not all men here are like they are in Saudi but some are and some women are treated always as second class. I’m grateful this is not my experience however.
Feb 13, Torey Lanier rated it it was amazing. Very similar to the first books, full of terrible truths and family drama. Really opens eyes to the abuse of women going on without seconds notice. Men are to blame. Sep 19, Victoria Thacher rated it liked it. Likely fiction disguised as a true story. I especially enjoyed the first book, but as the series continued I began questioning the story’s truth. A little internet investigating exposed the series as embellished if not entirely untrue.
Read the first couldn’t put it down so good. A must to mean. I struggle with this book. Jean Sasson has garnered an audience with a Saudi Princess, who shares her life. This alone is astounding. The story itself is like listening to a 40 year old woman with all the money and the sasdon in the world, but with the mentality and coping skills of an 8 year old.
This is a typical and continually theme throughout the entire trilogy: The Princess’ nephew brings a young girl he bought, so the girl can be raped by he and all of his cousins while on a ‘camping tr I struggle with this book. The Princess’ nephew brings a young girl he bought, so the girl can be raped by he and all of his cousins while on a ‘camping trip’ with the entire family. When he is caught in mid rape- the only ruckus from the men is why was he stopped?
He bought her fair and square! The Princess buys the young traumatized girl from her nephew and sets her up as a maid. Princess is pleased as punch at herself for her amazingly giving and open-minded spirit for this generous act!
To me- this is indicative of the absolute entitlement and lack of compassion or ability to be generous.
You basically bought another human to pick up after you. No thought to making the girl educated or giving her an opportunity to have a say in her future. Make her pick up my shit. I live in the Gulf region basically the Middle East to most and this book does not endear me at all to the royal women of the region.

As a non-believing, evolved Western woman, I was appalled at the many stories of female oppression recounted in all 3 books, and the powerlessness of women in the Middle East to this day.
I can’t even fathom how the author would willingly live in Saudi Arabia for so many years, but can only hope that by her publishing these horrific stories, some of the women have been saved. I must admit I was disappointed that I had to read all 3 books before Princess Sultana finally grew enough of a spine to st As a non-believing, evolved Western woman, I was appalled at the many stories of female oppression recounted in all 3 books, and the powerlessness of women in the Middle East to this day.
I must admit I was disappointed that I had to read all 3 books before Princess Sultana finally grew enough of a spine to stand up for one woman against all the men in her family and saved princss.
After she knew that female members of her own family and close friends suffered unimaginable horrors, some were even killed by their male family members, and yet she trlogy nothing to try and save them. Instead she turned to alcohol and mindless excessive nean. I really had a difficult time with the excesses of the royal family and their laziness, when obviously in other parts the poor people, including their triilogy servants, were suffering, and had no way of escaping their plight.
I learned a lot about the misinterpretations of the Koran by men, so they could prkncess women at will. It reinforced my belief how religion can poison primcess minds, especially innocent childrens’. Jun 18, Keliana Lily rated it really liked it. I love all 3 of these book and I really hope that Princess Sultana will write another book soon. These books let you see just how living in Saudi Arabia is like, and I don’t know how they do it, it’s really scary at times!
Zasson Sultana complains a lot about how bad her life is, and i understand the whole living in Rtilogy thing, but as far as her life, she has nothing to complain about and it makes me sick how she thinks its so bad. First off she got lucky and got to marry a man she loved and that I love all 3 of these book and I really hope that Princess Sultana will write another book soon.
First off she got lucky and got to kean a man she loved and that loves and worships her, he does not beat her or treat her bad, they have 3 great tirlogy and her tgilogy never took anymore wives.
She is treated like a Princess every step of the way, she even eats strawberries flown in from Europe everyday, and even the water they water their plants with is flown in from somewhere like Italy or something. She has a private plane to go anywhere, they have palaces all over and apartments and condos in Egypt, London, etc Jun 06, book.
I enjoyed learning things about a culture that I knew little about. While the main character hates the way women are treated in her country, she does nothing to change it. She rebels against those close to her and falls into her own self destruction. By the middle of book 3, I was getting irritated that Sultana had still done nothing to help the women of her country. Though I was relieved that she finally spoke openly about her feelings with the men in her family, I am left with a feeling that s I enjoyed learning things about a culture that I knew little about.
Though I was relieved that she finally spoke openly about her feelings with the men in her family, I am left with a feeling that she can do so much more.
I suppose everything takes baby steps. I just wish she wouldn’t have waited so long for the small step she took.
Overall, throughout the reading, I could not put it down. I wanted to know what would happen next.
The Princess Trilogy by Jean Sasson
Feb 26, Heather rated it liked it. I can honestly say I was ssasson by the first book. I honestly had no idea the extent of hatred toward Arab women. However, each generation and culture of women have fought the battles to be seen if not as equals to be treated humanly.
