This story by the author is much better. If you can get through the heavily accented conversation you will find how much a jewel it is.
Carl Heerwagen’s book reviews
I find this story slow and somewhat confusing. Not enough explanation of why the characters did what they did and meaning of terms. Notenough meaning as why they felt what they did.
I find thes story sad and very well written
I find this book very interesting. Not only it shows scandal but it gives a look into the Russian aristocracy in all its complexities.
The movies never did this book any justice. It has so much symbolism and innuendo Its remarkable
I find this book wonderful and sad.A tragedy and a show of political fanatacism that people should read. Glad to be able to read it now.
