For those who like their history

This audiobook is a must if you are into Russian history - it describes the story of the Romanovs, from the first one to the fall of the dynasty. It is some heavy work in some parts - you have to think that you cannot understand Russia without, at the same time, knowing something of what was going on in Europe and the Middle East. But in general, the prose is runny, full of details yet not overwhelmingly technological or for the scholar.

The work every history lover will love to follow.

This book is for very serious " listeners". It is suitably examined and everything is in every single little detail, nothing at all left out. It is tiresome stuff but I love it. I was somewhat knowledgeable about Russian history, to begin with, but this audiobook has filled in the holes.

A Master Work By Captivating History.

Aside from the insight and wonderful also useful detail it provides, the cover looks fantastic. A great listener for a Russian history fan, a fan of majesty, or a fan of any family drama.
