From the acclaimed author of Amelia Lost and The Lincolns comes a heartrending narrative nonfiction page-turner--and a perfect resource for meeting Common Core standards. When Russia's last tsar, Nicholas II, inherited the throne in 1894, he was unprepared to do so. With their four daughters (including Anastasia) and only son, a hemophiliac, Nicholas and his reclusive wife, Alexandra, buried their heads in the sand, living a life of opulence as World War I raged outside their door and political unrest grew into the Russian Revolution. Deftly maneuvering between the lives of the Romanovs and the plight of Russia's peasants and urban workers--and their eventual uprising--Fleming offers up a fascinating portrait, complete with inserts featuring period photographs and compelling primary-source material that brings it all to life.… (mais)

The book provides history and information on how Imperial Russia fell the bolsheviks It gives great details on the Romanov family rose and fell from grace in the early twentieth century due to the failures of World War One as well as many impoverished Russians being angry at the Romanov Family for centuries.

The book is a great great graphic novel that would suit older students most likely in the middle school range due to tones and themes of violence and uncomfortable historical truths. ( )

Interesting and fast-moving account of the rise and fall of the Romanovs. The pace was perfect for my attention-span (anything longer than 8 disc is just to much for me on audio. Though I usually don't care for multiple narrators, the use of different voices for various Russian accounts of daily life worked really well. The main narrator got a bit melodramatic but was enjoyable to listen to. The author took a few too many liberties with the story. For example, no one would have known that Alexandra whispered to her daughters in English right before their execution; guards' accounts say they left the family alone at this point and no one who survived was in the room during that scene.

At first I felt as though I was just reading a history textbook and had to force myself to keep reading. Eventually the characters became more human and you realized how much the adults truly cared for their children creating even in extreme harsh circumstances a family friendly life. The beginning half also was about history I was aware of while the actual final year of their life was new info. The Rasputin years were given a fair treatment for both sides. The Russian people truly led harsh lives. ( )

The dissonance between the very rich and the poor is the ultimate undoing of a famous Russian family.

Plot/Summary: This book tells the story of the Romanovs, who were the last imperial family of Russia. Detailed information that includes personal accounts of those who lived at that time, helps the reader to gain a deeper insight than one you would get from a traditional history book about this famous family. The book shifts between historical information about the family’s lives and primary source narratives of the poor peasants who lived very different and difficult lives and how a growing discontent led to the Russian Revolution.Their ill-fated story ends with Nicholas being deposed from his position and the entire family being executed by Bolshevik revolutionists.

Personal Response: Although the information from Russian history is familiar to many, this book is written in a way that reads like fiction. Fleming doesn’t recount facts, she tells the story in a way that keeps the reader hooked and wanting more. The real photographs of the family added to the book, add an eerie element, but make it all the more intriguing!

Curricular Connections: There is no better story to show how an autocratic government is one that is destined to fail at some point. The fascinating tale about these very real people who play out like characters from a book, make for engaging history lesson. ( )

I rarely read non-fiction, but I picked this up for a book club and am so glad I did. The Romanovs kept incredibly detailed diaries, took family snapshots, and wrote letters -- often in English! -- their whole lives, so this could read like fiction with direct-quotation dialog. Since the fall of the Soviet Union, the rest of the materials Fleming used have come to light, as well: court documents, testimonials from family servants and early Soviet leaders, and of course What Happened to Anastasia. Watching characters build to a foreknown conclusion is one of my favorite storytelling structures, and what better story to tell that way than a classic historical tragedy? I devoured it in two days.

This was the best description of the build-up to a revolution I have ever read, as well as the best case for the problems with hereditary absolute monarchy. This was not a dude who should have been, or had any desire to be, in charge of anything more than a small-town doctor's office. He just wanted to snuggle up with his family, which is all well and good when you aren't in charge of millions of dying peasants and the world's most horrifically pointless war.

The dying peasants get their own voice throughout, in a series of sidebars called "Beyond the Palace Gates." Fleming dug up all sorts of fascinating writings from visitors to villages, and the increasingly literate villagers themselves as they streamed to post-Industrial Revolution cities in search of better life in factories. I wanted more of this, but that would be another book.

Overall, give this to anyone studying Russian or 19th-20th century European history, or anyone who loves historical drama of any kind. Would work for precocious 12-year-olds through adults. (Fleming manages to tell a horrific story effectively with minimal gruesomeness and lewdness. I'm pretty sure Rasputin did a lot more than encourage noblewomen to sit on his lap, but the way Fleming tells it, that's plenty.) ( )
