This review is from: Catherine The Great (Paperback)
Troyat's portrayal of Catherine can, at times, be rather dry. It is of course important not to become too fantastical when writing about Catherine the Great, however, a little more flavouring would have been appreciated. It seems that Catherine herself carries the book as it is difficult not to enjoy any literature written about such an impressive woman.
