Great book

by Debra B on Sep 5, 2014

I don't read a lot of biographies; I prefer well-researched historical fiction. However, this book was beautifully written and highly interesting to boot; I could scarcely put it down. I bought a copy for my mother and then went out and bought Massie's "Peter the Great," which I am currently reading. I highly recommend it.

Reads like a Historical Novel

by Barbara E on Jun 5, 2014

Readable biography of an amazing woman. The first half is about her life growing up and moving to Russia. The second half is her life as Empress. A fascinating story.

Very readable biography of Catherine the Great

by LorraineL on Aug 16, 2012

After hearing the author, Robert Massie, interviewed on Public Radio, I was determined to read this book about Catherine the Great. He used the letters and other writings of this remarkable woman to bring her to life for the reader. I think this is a highly-recommendable book.
