    1. Perusing this book is like having a museum exhibit at your fingertips The photos are exquisite and I really enjoyed all of the beautiful paintings, portraits, costumes, uniforms, photos, letters, etc My only qualm was that not all of the captions were on the same page as the pictures they referenced I would read about an item then would have to turn the page to see the image and some of them were haphazardly ordered Otherwise, it was a lovely book and I could have spent months reading every deta [...]

    2. I was not expecting such detailed descriptions to accompany each picture A nice surprise And although I anticipated photographs of the family than there were, a different and unexpected aspect to the book was a positive for me, personally There were many photographs of items from the Hermitage Museum, a place I visited almost thirteen years ago I enjoyed seeing and remembered a good many items and, as stated before, appreciate the detailed descriptions of each The book stirs fond memories.

    3. More of a coffee table book, and certainly not something you curl up with, but of a picture book of everything relating to the Romanovs furniture, clothing, art, medals, photographs, etc with great, thorough explanations, often including excerpts from diaries or letters Really fascinating.

    4. A wonderfully told and moving epic about the fall of the Romanoffs They amazingly had no idea what was really going on and as a result were banished to eastern Russia.
