    While providing a tidbit here and there that I wasn t aware of, this book was distasteful to me It reads like a sensationalist journal rather than a historian s account The Massie book on Nicholas II was muchconcise and professional, and much less h...

    I read this quite a while ago, but I really enjoyed it Based largely on documents released by the Russian government during the 90 s and on journals entries from members of Nicholas II and his family, the author simult...

    Wow This book had a lot of info I had no trouble following along with the first half, which was mostly explaining family relations there is a nice little family tree diagram at the front and stories from when Nicholas was born up until he took the throne Then the story moved into quotes from his diary and her diary, and their letters to each other when he was away Reading the excerpts from the diaries while in exile was interesting It was when the book moved into all the political names a Wow This book had a lot of info I had no trouble following along with the first half, which was mostly explaining family relations there is a nice little family tree diagram at the front and stories from when Nicholas was born up until he took the throne Then the story moved into quotes from his diary and her diary, and their letters to each other when he was away Reading the excerpts from the diaries while in exile was interesting It was when the book moved into all the political names and parties that I started to get a bit lost All the names started to look the same from page to page, so I was constantly flipping back to see if that was the same guy from this and that, etc Example Lukoyanov Lyukhanovtwo totally different dudes Also, the author didn t help matters by jumping between using first names and last names.The end of the book was hard to read, in a different sense The whole read is building up to the execution, and then to read first hand ...

    Excellent Lots of facts and history to plow through but totally worth it Uncovers true historical facts of what really happened to the Romanov s The first time some of these documents have been published from the Russian archives If you love Russian history or ...

    A great follow up to Robert Massie s Nicholas and Alexandra It s written in a quirky Russian style, a bit difficult to get intobut ultimately it pays off handsomely by telling the story of the last days of the royal family from a decidedly Russian point of view.

    I unfortunately couldn t finish this book It is well written and intricate Shines a new light on the assassination of the Romanov family However, the characters are awful One has trouble sympathizing with the not so bright tsar Nicolas and his neurotic wife Past half of the book, one can t help shaking the feeling that the Romanovs are responsible for their own plight, knowing what was coming to them yet choosing to remain indolent and pray instead Tsar Nicolas is blindly and stupidly piou I unfortunately couldn t finish this book It is well written and intricate Shines a new light on the assassination of the Romanov family However, the characters are awful One has trouble sympathizing with the not so bright tsar Nicolas and his neurotic wife Past half of the book, one can t help shaking the feeling that the Romanovs are responsible for their own plight, knowing what was coming to them yet choosing to...

    Back when I was a real person, I lived in Bloomington, Indiana, and I used to trawl all the town s bookstores looking for books about Nicholas, with whom I became fascinated during the summer of 2008 and outright obsessed with over the course of 2009 Caveat Emptor was a great place to go because I always found heaps of Russian books there a George R.R Martin lookalike manned the counter, and the entire place was floor ...
