About book Some Girls: My Life In A Harem (2010)

Not a literary gem but an interesting memoir nonetheless. Drew me in pretty quickly. The author gives a pretty lucid insight into the sordid goings on and hypocrisy of the Royal Family. All this against the backdrop of her struggle in overcoming her own past and identity crisis fuelled by the love/hate relationship with her adopted father, made all the more complicated by the physical and verbal abuse.She has a tendency to gloss over the whole scene though. Are these women exploiting the Prince with their bodies and sexual skills or is the Prince exploiting them? I can imagine that the reality must have been quite traumatic for most of these young women: isolated, separated from their children, family and friends, treated as pieces of meat, not knowing whom to trust. I suppose this was, and is, the reality of being a part of a harem. The reason I gave this book 2 stars is because I just never felt like I was transported into the world of the life in a harem. I felt like an outsider looking in, and with well-written memoirs, you feel like you're in the room with them as these things happen. She glossed over a lot of things with short descriptions of events, and then spent multiple chapters talking about her father which had nothing to do with the premise of the memoir. Meh.
