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.
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.
