5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT READ!, January 4, 2006
This review is from: Nicholas and Alexandra (Paperback)
Like a number of other reviewers, this is one that I set down and read about every three or four years. It is that delightful! I normally like my history a little more "hard core" but this work is an exception. It reads more like a novel than most biographies, yet is simply loaded with facts concerning the last Russian Tsar and his family. The book was of course written several years ago and new facts concerning this royal family and their country during this time period have come to light since that time. This is not a distraction in the least. A good story, well told, is still a good story and the author did quite well with in information available to him at that time. This work did, like other reviewers, strike a spark and interest in Russian history that has lead to much good reading since I first read it. For that I am grateful. Highly recommend this to any one who is not only interested in history, but for anyone interested in just a good human story.
