5.0 out of 5 stars A Massie masterpiece... again, 25 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Nicholas and Alexandra: The Tragic, Compelling Story of the Last Tsar and his Family (Kindle Edition)
I bought Massie's Peter the Great (for 99p) and learned more by reading this one book than by anything I learned in a whole 2 years studying him at school in the 1980s. It prompted me to buy his book on Catherine the Great and this one. The author has an ability to really tell a story, time doesn't seem to matter, the characters are real on every page. Writing a serious history book that maintains a personal quality is a hard task but Massie achieves it each time. Worth all the 1 something I paid for the kindle copy (especially as each book is 25 in hardback at Waterstones!)
