A very tedious read. Junor doesn't say anything that’s not already known to anyone who's ever read the British press/gossip columns, including the infamous News of the World, which should by no means be a source for any historian worthy of the name. The book won't tell you anything new if you're already familiar with the basics of Prince Harry's life and deeds, and if you're not, better not start with this book if your wish is to get yourself acquainted with him. It could’ve been better stru [...]

3.5 stars I have a lot of views on this book. Both positive and negative. First of all, unrealistic sources- “says a friend”, who is the friend? I hate when books do this because it is not reliable and it could be anyone speaking. Several of the sources have no authenticity. The first 100 pages is on Diana and Charles. I picked up a book to read about Prince Harry not his parents. I understand setting the scene but not to the extent of one third of the story. The writing style does make you [...]

If you know me, I know that I love reading about royalty, particularly the British royalty. Any time that I see a biography of one of the members of the royal family I have to pick it up. This book was no different. These books always promise unfettered access to royalty, which is never really true. I always hope. Prince Harry is a fascinating guy and I wanted to get closer to him.In a lot of ways for those who are already for familiar with the royal family. this book will probably fall a little [...]

Gosh. Wasn't this an exasperating read.I've previously read Harry: A Biography, by Marcia Moody, and I found that a wonderfully just, and well-balanced, portrait of the Prince. What's more, it was actually well-written. This one was more a collection of short essays, each bearing no connection to the one preceding or following it - as evidenced by the continuous clarification of people we had already met in chapters before. On top of that, so many of the chapters were merely transcriptions of wh [...]

I'm a sucker for books about the Royal family, & this is a good one.Penny Junor also wrote a good book about Prince William & I personally hope she's working on one about Kate! Cause I'd read that.

Having an interest in the Royal Family lead me to check out this book at the library. While I am aware of the controversy and charitable donations Prince Harry has been involved with, I wanted to gain a greater understanding of the man. What the author, Penny Junor, has done with this book is created a respectable biography of a young man full of determination and courage, but she has also added a relatable factor sprinkled with charm to him. Junor covers his younger years, with the obvious turm [...]

This book could have EASILY been a five star book! Sadly, Junor's anti-Diana stance (very evident in this book, restrained in William's bio) brings down what could have been a fantastic book. Ironically, Charles doesn't fair much better either (both Charles and Diana are portrayed in a better light in William's book). Junor has lots of wonderful quotes about Harry that really give you a much more in-depth look at him. She does miss the boat when she states that Harry flies as if he has dyslexia [...]

Borrowed from Publisher/NetGalley for an honest review.This was far too anti-Princess Diana instead of focusing more on who Prince Harry is and what his achievements are/were. The biased opinions and unpolished vibe from this biography didn't make for a good read. Most of the information I felt could have been found online or from reading articles about Prince Harry and the Royal Family.I thought this was going to be an interesting look at the life of Prince Harry but this was poorly written and [...]

This book seems less a biography of Harry than an opportunity to spread more gossip about Chuck and Di, a topic that already seen too much ink. I can't be bothered to read any further. Negative stars

I was so very excited to finally get my hands on a biography of Prince Harry, as there are so few available! Issued for his 30th birthday, I found it to be a good look at his life. The first 100 pages or so are mostly dedicated to Charles and Diana, and while this is to be expected, I do find it interesting that Junor takes such a strong stance on Charles - she portrays him as misunderstood and emphasizes what a good father he is, and how he tried to salvage the marriage but that Diana was very [...]

Gorgeous Prince Harry. He & his brother William are so distastefully (I think) called "the heir & the spare". As William is in line to be a ruler, then his children, Harry has nothing-BUT he has more freedom. And being the wilder one of the two, this is ok with him. He has more opportunities to fulfill his desires to help people. The book takes you through the marriage (albeit a dreadful marriage) of his mother, Diana & their father Prince Charles. Talks about how the boys were alway [...]

Written to celebrate Prince Harry's 30th birthday it goes behind the tabloid headlines and shows us a young man living in a glass house where everything that happens to him is in the papers and it appears as if nothing is sacred. I am surprised actually that he has turned out so well considering what he has had to out up with in his life. The book spans his childhood when his parents marriage was disintegrating in the headlines, his role within the royal family as "the spare", some youthful adve [...]

Some days, you need a book with clear good guys and bad guys with some power and influence, hewing more or less to my world view. Junor delivers. Her subject comes off marvelously (unlike Princess Diana)! Those Royals have learned a lot since Prince Charles, his ex and his siblings were in the tabloids. Hard not to like Prince William or Prince Harry with their military service, charity work and devotion to duty. Compare them to our political royalty, the Bushes and the Clintons! Then there's th [...]

InterestingI guess I have a soft spot for Harry going back to Diana's death. Whatever you might think about her circumstances, the sorrow is that two little boys lost their mother in a storm of shocking publicity.One cannot forget the funeral procession scene and that heart tearing single word on Diana's coffin, 'Mummy', placed their by the very young Harry. All that being said this biography about Harry is just one of many, neither better or less than the other and really, you get little more f [...]

I'm not a big "royal" follower but I like how Harry has broken the mold a little bit. Unfortunately, the first third of the book made me want to stop reading it. Supposedly it dealt with Harry's childhood before their mother's death, but it was so anti-Diana and inflammatory that I felt like the author had a personal gripe with her. Rarely did it mention Diana's relationship with her boys, instead focusing far too much on Charles and Diana's relationship/s. This causes a huge disconnect when the [...]

Ms. Junor could have subtitled this book "Who Grew Up Quite Alright Despite His Mother Being A Crazy Bananas Weirdo Who Never Deserved Their Superhero Father." What a disrespectful hatchet job of Princess Diana! It's obvious that the author was kissing up to the royal family (and likely had to in order to get access to staffers and acquaintances as she did), but she went way overboard. The majority of the book has little to do with Harry, but rehashes all of the marital difficulties Charles and [...]

I received this via First Reads Giveaways. I really, REALLY disliked it. I loved Princess Diana. I still remember exactly where I was and what I was doing when she was murdered. It broke my heart. She was a beautiful, graceful woman who, despite any flaws, did a lot of good for people. This book was less about Prince Harry's life and more about how awful Di was. Not to mention, there were really no new revelations. Everything in this book has been said before somewhere news reports, tabloids, et [...]

Great insight to both Harry and William and the roles Harry and his brother play on behalf of the Royal family. Knowing a biography would have to deal with his parents, I did feel that too much was spent on painting Diana in an unfavorable light. Harry has proven himself and must be admired for his successful military career, devotion to wounded warriors and his other charity work. A well written book with a bit too much gossip but still an interesting read.

Forget about Prince William and Kate! It's all about Prince Harry. he makes mistakes, owns up them and keeps pressing forward. He is fun-loving young man, yet, serious, hard working and responsible when he needs to be. A man's man and athletic stud with a heart for children especially those who are suffering. His parents and his nation should be proud! Enjoy the book!

I won a copy of this book from GoodReads.I am a hugeRoyal Familyfollower so I tend to read anything and everything about them. The author didn't really WOW me, but I did enjoy the book. A confirmation for myself is that I continue to dislike the labels the Brits give to the Royals. Calling someone aSPAREis so not classy.

I won this in a giveaway.Not really the celebrity fan girl type so this read like 300+ pages of propaganda. For what it was worth the narrative did flow, but seemed to be a lot of fluff. Anyone who is a follower of the Royals would probably love this book.
