I could not put this book down!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Former People: The Final Days of the Russian Aristocracy (Hardcover)
It just arrived two days ago and I finished it out in two days. I was absolutely absorbed in it and could not put it down. What an incredible tragedy the revolution and its aftermath was for Russia. I had thought I would not have a great deal of sympathy for those in the nobility (and middle classes) who chose to stay behind after the Bolsheviks took over, but here in this book their stories come alive. I have to say I am embarrassed my prior ignorance. I recommend this book with five stars.
