The story of the love that ended an empire

In this commanding book, Pulitzer Prize–winning author Robert K. Massie sweeps readers back to the extraordinary world of Imperial Russia to tell the story of the Romanovs’ lives: Nicholas’s political naïveté, Alexandra’s obsession with the corrupt mystic Rasputin, and little Alexis’s brave struggle with hemophilia. Against a lavish backdrop of luxury and intrigue, Massie unfolds a powerful drama of passion and history—the story of a doomed empire and the death-marked royals who watched it crumble.

I was a bit put off at first by how big this book is, but I found it to be a fairly easy read. Incredibly informative of both the two titular characters, but also the circumstances surrounding their lives. Definitely worth reading for anyone interested in history.

I found that the author put way too much emphasis on Alexei's hemophilia and not enough on all the other problems Russia was experiencing at the time for the fall of the empire.
