A little one-sided but still amazing,

This review is from: Nicholas & Alexandra (Paperback)
It's hard not to disagree with the reviewers who have accused this book of bias in favour of the tsar, ignoring the plight of the Russian masses. Clearly Massie has a soft spot for the Romanovs. And yet in spite of that, or perhaps because of it, this is a gripping read. The pace, colour, intrigue and sheer poignancy of the tale make it well worth buying. One can enjoy it while bearing in mind that this is probably only one side of the story.
