Why do female reviewers esp gush over Massie's abysmal book on catherine the great? I don't understand this phenomenon. the book contains everty error know to woman, man or besast!! Andheimagines he's avg us from salacious stories about her sexuality, unaware that these have been all over theInternet for at least two DECADES! Hew looks ill on screen and his ltest b ook is sick too.
apologize as I do not what to come across as one of those that pick-on and make fun of the mentally enfeebled. I'm just saying...you might want to back off as you are making a complete fool of yourself.
Massie is a fraud, and s9mebody needs to say so. My review with chapter and verse will be in slavic review in 3-6 months. wortman's essay in the Public Iterest a few weeks back also points out how one-sided Massie's book is though he's more polite than I).
High-handed and shrill declamation of someone else's views (as well as hard to read; are you typing this in on your smartphone?) does not encourage us to be inclined towards reading a review written by you, in future or now. Thanks for your input, though. I feel vindicated.
