When I read this, I was not much of a historical novel reader, I used to read a lot of the suspense at the time. However, I gladly made an exception for John Boyne, since I’m a fan of his books!
I really loved how he set once again a beautiful story in a beautiful background. You know what will happen to them, but still you find it worth reading and I was almost fearing the end, as if I could have changed anything. Which of course is nonsense, but it describes the way Boyne writes his stories. As if you are a part of it. Loved this story as well. Never knew a lot about the Romanovs, but I almost got the feeling that I do now!
