    " good read but massie is way too generous to them both. so many wrong headed decisions and delusions about what was best for russia. "

    " I read this just before my Transiberian Railway trip. Massie came to speak at the Fresno Metropolitan Museum, and I got him to sign my copy - yea! "

    " What a fantastic book! This phenomenal biography of the last Tsar and Tsarina of Russia read like a novel. It's an absolutely gorgeous read. I recommend everyone read this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cb | 1/31/2014

    " Although this book was written in 1967 it is still a fascinating read for anyone interested in this period of history. "

    " The classic unbelieveably good sob story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zelia | 1/21/2014

    " The far best book that's ever been written about the last Imperial family of Russia. Massie really created an incredible and legendary book with this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mandy | 1/17/2014

    " Massie is obviously sympathetic towards the Romanovs. However, he does a good job of telling the reader when he's speculating. i really enjoyed Massie's use of letters and journals on which he bases the stories. It definately added credibility to the many myths surrounding the Romanovs. Massie's constant babbling about hemophilia can be a little tedious, but it's understandable with his son being a hemophiliac. The end is a bit bothersome when he mentions where everyone is and who is still alive...just because the book was written in the 60s. Overall, it is a very well written book that keeps you reading even though we all know how the story ends. "
